Conditions of Expertise
Personalized Endocrine Care
Diabetes Types 1 and 2
Diabetes care has improved in leaps and bounds over the last decade, with the rise of GLP1 (and now GIP and soon glucagon) receptor agonists and the technical revolution of continuous glucose monitors and insulin pumps. However, the importance of lifestyle has remained stable since these conditions were discovered. I enjoy figuring out the nuances of each patient's diabetes needs, and working together to optimize diabetes outcomes.
For people who have tried (and failed) multiple weight loss diets, exercise regimens, diet supplements and snake oil. Weight loss is a lifetime commitment that takes lifetime changes and cannot happen overnight. Anyone who tells you otherwise is trying to steal your money. I am a proponent of lifestyle changes and weight loss (and maintaining) medication and am excited about tailoring regimens made especially for you.
Thyroid conditions (including hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, thyroid nodules) are very common. Though their treatment is usually straight forward for patients and doctors alike, there are times when patients with these conditions do not feel quite right despite having normal labs. It is often difficult to determine what symptoms are caused by the thyroid and which are caused by the pace and stress of modern life, however some patients feel better on certain formulations of thyroid hormone.
Thyroid cancer is diagnosed by biopsy and followed by thyroid surgery and possible radioactive iodine. When your thyroid is removed, you will need thyroid hormone replacement.
Pituitary hormone abnormalities and nodules are common and it is important to know when to treat, how to treat and when to just follow carefully. I enjoy working with patients to determine their goals and formulate a treatment plan.
The parathyroids are glands very few people know about until they have a problem with them. Who would have thought a gland the size of a lentil can be so troublesome!
Osteoporosis and low bone mass are quiet disorders that can change your life with one fracture. Its good to be on top of bone health, optimizing your lifestyle to keep those bones healthy, and to start treating them when your risk of fracture increases!
Male Testosterone Deficiency
When it comes to testosterone, we all know that numbers matter. That is why I don't replace testosterone if it isn't deficient. However, getting testosterone into normal range can be life changing and we can work on doing that in a safe manner.
