What is endocrinology?
Endocrinology is the study of hormones, which can be seen as messengers from one type of cell to another. The endocrine system controls the flow of information between different cells and tissues, thereby regulating growth, puberty, menopause, appetite, body weight, sugar metabolism and bone density. An endocrinologist is a doctor who specializes in treating disorders of the endocrine system.
Do you have Diabetes or Thyroid disease?
While the most common endocrine disorder is diabetes, followed by thyroid disease, an endocrinologist's expertise can be applied in many other areas. An endocrinologist can help you fight tumors and abnormal hormonal regulation of the adrenal and pituitary glands, which can cause a multitude of symptoms and diseases. If you have a condition that is linked to the endocrine system, Dr. Ole Saetrum Opgaard and our friendly staff will help identify the cause and manage the symptoms, with the goal of a better quality of life.
