The endocrine system controls so many aspects of a person’s health, from the general state to the physical appearance. The slightest fluctuation of hormones can throw the entire body into turmoil.
Endocrine disease treatment is one of the most difficult areas in medicine. The visit to an endocrinologist begins with examinations from cardiologists, neurologists, and/or ophthalmologists, each of whom end up referring the patient to another specialty. It is a long path before the true cause of the disease is identified and treated. However, the price of this route is too high: as time progresses, hormonal disorders make cause increasingly serious health changes, making it difficult to predict recovery rates.
Endocrinologists in the USA are rightly considered to be the world's leading experts in their field. The USA is one of the few countries wherein pituitary tumors are successfully treated. New and evolving methods of controlling and correcting diabetes mellitus can almost completely restore the patient's quality of life.

American endocrinologists have developed and successfully applied the most effective methods for weight loss and obesity treatment (including those caused by disruptions in the hormonal system). Hospitals and clinics in the Texas Medical Center provide multiple avenues to diagnose and treat diseases of the hormonal system using innovative methods of medicine.
