The hormones in your body affect many aspects of your health––from how much you weigh, to how much energy you have, to your fertility. Indiana University Health Arnett Hospital endocrinologists provide you with expert care to help balance hormones and improve your bodily functions.
Endocrinologists are physicians who receive additional training in treating conditions of the hormonal system. These diseases include diabetes, thyroid conditions such as hypothyroidism, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), hypogonadism and lipid disorders. In children, endocrinologists treat Type 1 diabetes.
