Thyroid Conditions

Northwestern Medicine physicians evaluate and treat endocrine system disorders, including thyroid conditions. Hormone imbalances and endocrine disorders can affect your overall health, from physical growth to daily life. A highly trained team of endocrinology specialists is available to consult, diagnose and treat a variety of gland diseases.

Endocrinologists often treat diabetes, metabolic syndrome and pituitary or thyroid disorders. Menopause, lack of growth, osteoporosis, certain cancers, cholesterol disorders, hypertension and infertility may be additional reasons to see an endocrinologist.

The Northwestern Medicine board-certified endocrinologists can evaluate and diagnose a comprehensive range of hormonal imbalances and gland-related diseases. If you are diagnosed with an endocrine condition, the Northwestern Medicine specialists will work closely with you and your care team to create a personalized plan for treatment.
