An increasing number of Americans are affected by diabetes, osteoporosis and other endocrine-related disorders every day. Primary Health’s endocrinology experts provide comprehensive resources, ranging from diagnosis and treatment, to patient support and education, including:

  • A full range of laboratory tests, hormone sampling and other diagnostic procedures to detect early endocrine disease
  • The latest imaging techniques such as CT scans, MRI, DXA, ultrasonography and nuclear medicine imaging
  • Stimulatory or suppressive studies to detect early under-activity or over-activity, respectively, of the endocrine glands
  • Diagnostic ultrasound of the thyroid, parathyroid, pancreas and adrenal glands to detect small tumors and ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration to determine if the tumor is benign or malignant
  • Bone mineral density testing (DXA) to detect early bone loss and osteoporosis
  • Referral to the Ingalls Diabetes Management Center for instruction in medication management, insulin administration, self-blood glucose monitoring, meal planning, weight management, exercise planning, gestational diabetes management, insulin pump education and training, and 72-hour continuous glucose monitoring
