Endocrinology

Care for hormone and endocrine disorders

Our expert consultants diagnose and treat a range of endocrine conditions including thyroid and pituitary disorders, as well as diabetes

What is endocrinology?

Endocrinology is the study of conditions that are caused by hormonal dysfunction. These conditions can affect you or your child's growth and development, metabolism function and weight. With comprehensive diagnostic screening services, we focus on early detection so we can deliver a course of treatment tailored to your specific needs.

Our endocrinologists are experienced in the management of all endocrine diseases, including thyroid conditions, pituitary disorders, obesity and diabetes. If you are a person with diabetes, we have the expertise and facilities to provide the highest quality of care, from a full range of diagnostic tests to treatment and support from specialist dietitians, podiatrists and nurses.

At The Portland Hospital, our paediatric endocrinologists treat children with a variety of growth and development disorders, as well as other conditions of the endocrine glands.
