What Is Endocrinology?

Hormones are produced inside glands of the body, and act as a messaging system from one part of the body to another, regulating nearly every bodily function. These include:

  • Bone Health
  • Growth and development
  • Movement of nutrients
  • Sexual function and reproduction
  • Sleep
  • Stress and inflammation
  • Weight and metabolism

Endocrinology is the study of these hormones and the treatment of their impaired functionality. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms can be traced to hormonal conditions, and by treating these underlying causes our dual-board certified physicians can provide more permanent and complete remedies.

What Endocrine Disorders Do You Treat?

Our friendly and knowledgeable doctors have years of experience seeing adult and child patients for the diagnosis, evaluation and management of disorders such as:

  • Adrenal, pituitary, and parathyroid gland disorders
  • Cholesterol and other lipid disorders
  • Diabetes and metabolic syndrome
  • Osteoporosis, calcium and bone metabolism (parathyroid and vitamin D)
  • Post-menopausal hormone replacement therapy
  • Reproductive system disorders
  • Thyroid disorders and fine needle biopsy (FNA)

Do You Offer Hormone Therapy For Transgender Patients?

For nearly every transgender patient, endocrinology treatment is the first step in the physical transition. As you begin your transition, hormonal changes can have a wide variety of effects on the body’s different functions. Our certified endocrinologists can help you manage this transition to minimize the discomfort as you ease into your new body.

At AllCare Family Medicine And Urgent Care in Tysons Corner, our permanent endocrinologists provide comprehensive care for transgender persons seeking hormonal therapy. We create a safe space where we can work together to provide an effective hormone regimen that will steadily suppress the endogenous, or existing, hormone production determined by your genetic, biologic sex, while increasing or maintaining sex hormone levels at the appropriate range for your gender.

Hormone therapy is important, yet it forms part of a complex process. We believe in treating and helping the patient rather than the specific condition. In order to provide this holistic care, we work with mental health professionals to ensure that the entire transition process runs smoothly.
