Your Health is What Matters to Us

Endocrinology is a complex study of the various hormones and their actions and disorders in the body. Glands are organs that produce hormones. These are substances that help to control activities in the body and have several effects on the metabolism, reproduction, food absorption and utilization, growth and development, etc. The glands that make up the endocrine system include the pineal, hypothalamus, pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, thymus, adrenals, pancreas, ovaries and testes.

 

An endocrinologist is a specially trained doctor who has trained in Internal Medicine as well. 

Rheumatologists are internists with training in the diagnosis and treatment of arthritis and rheumatism. Their strong foundation in internal medicine prepares them as specialists to manage localized and systemic (generalized) pain. For example, they treat localized pain in the back, neck shoulders, and hands, including osteoarthritis, tendonitis and bursitis, and systemic pain caused by diseases like rheumatoid arthritis or systemic lupus. Carpal tunnel syndrome, Lyme disease and osteoporosis are other examples of the diverse problems treated by rheumatologists.

 

The complex and changeable nature of many rheumatic diseases often requires ongoing assessment and evaluation. The physicians at Lafayette Arthritis and Endocrine Clinic (LAEC), encourage the formation of close physician/patient relationships as they monitor conditions and modify treatment. Our goal is to reduce pain and maximize function.
