About Bingham Memorial Endocrinology

Bingham Memorial’s endocrinologists specialize in diabetes, thyroid diseases, osteoporosis and the emission of hormones throughout various glands in the body that regulate aspects of metabolism, digestion, breathing, mood and stress, to name a few. Endocrinology is the study and treatment of hormone-releasing glands located throughout your body, known as the endocrine system. Your endocrine system is responsible for the production and distribution of hormones into the blood stream through major endocrine glands, including the thyroid, pancreas, parathyroid, adrenal, gonad and pituitary glands. Endocrine glands help regulate:

  •         Blood pressure
  •         Bone disorders
  •         Calcium disorders
  •         Disorders of growth hormones in adults
  •         Metabolism
  •         Reproduction
