The Endocrinology Center at Artesia General Hospital offers treatment for a range of endocrine disorders, including diabetes, thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal and pituitary diseases. Our comprehensive diagnostic services allow us to focus on early diagnosis and state-of-the-art medical and surgical treatments tailored to your specific needs.
Our team is experienced in the management of endocrine diseases, which affect hormones. Hormones influence or control a wide range of physiological activities, such as growth, development, puberty, level of alertness, sugar regulation, appetite and bone growth. Hormonal problems also contribute to diseases such as diabetes, thyroid conditions, pituitary conditions, some sexual problems, some neurological problems, appetite and obesity, bone problems and cancer, among others.
There is a lot more to treating diabetes than just keeping your blood sugar at a healthy level. Adding a doctor with special training in helping people with diabetes and hormonal disorders to your diabetes care team will help to ensure you’re managing your disease in the best possible way.
Healthy eating, physical activity, monitoring your condition, taking medication and reducing risks to your health are all important parts of your daily routine for people with diabetes. Susan Dade, RD, LD, CDE can help. As a Certified Diabetes Educator and Certified Insulin Pump Trainer, she works with you as a member of your healthcare team to develop a personalized plan to keep you healthy.
