Diabetes & Endocrine


Diabetes is a disease in which the body is unable to properly use and store glucose (a form of sugar). Glucose backs up in the bloodstream — causing one’s blood glucose (sometimes referred to as blood sugar) to rise too high.

Diabetic Neuropathy

Diabetic Neuropathy is painful nerve damage associated with diabetes. The damage is related to blood sugar levels being too high for too long. Different types of diabetic neuropathy can affect your feet and legs, hips, head or digestive system.


Hyperparathyroidism is a condition in which there is too much parathyroid hormone in the bloodstream due to one (or more) of the body’s four parathyroid glands being overactive.


Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland (located in the front of your neck) is overactive and produces too much thyroid hormone.


Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormone to keep some of the body’s functions running properly.


Osteoporosis is a condition in which the body loses too much bone, makes too little, or both. As a result, bones become weak and may break easily.
