Endocrinology Services Offered By Dr. Rabito
His endocrinology services include:
Type 2 Diabetes
A condition in which the body is unable to use insulin appropriately and blood sugar is elevated. Type 2 diabetics need targeted lifestyle changes and properly managed medications in order to minimize complications such as eye, kidney and heart disease.
Type 1 Diabetes
An autoimmune disease that prevents the body from producing insulin. Patients with Type 1 diabetes need intensive insulin management and lifestyle counseling in an effort to avoid complications.
An often overlooked condition in which the blood sugar is elevated, but not quite high enough for a diagnosis of Type 2 Diabetes. Prediabetes can lead to Type 2 Diabetes, and is a risk factor for heart disease. This condition needs to be addressed early by an endocrinology and metabolism specialist to optimize health.
The thyroid gland controls metabolism, and subtle defects such as an over-active or under-active thyroid gland, can have detrimental effects on your health.
Lipid disorders increase the risk for heart attack and stroke. Patients with abnormal cholesterol should be managed with appropriate lifestyle, diet, and possibly medications, depending on each patient's risk.
Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
A common condition affecting up to 10% of women of childbearing age. PCOS is associated with irregular periods, infertility, abnormal body hair, obesity, and risk of heart disease. Appropriate management of PCOS is imperative for overall health and well-being.
A condition in males associated with fatigue, low energy, loss of muscle mass and decreased interest in sex. After an appropriate work up to determine the cause, replacing testosterone in a safe, closely monitored fashion leads to significant improvement in quality of life, virility and overall health.
A condition in which bones become brittle and weak, increasing the risk for debilitating fractures. Potential causes of this condition must be determined, and treatment with exercise and possibly medications and supplements will improve bone density and reduce fracture risk.
The adrenal glands produce hormones essential for the body to function normally. Over-secretion or under-secretion of these hormones can lead to significant health implications and need to be addressed to optimize health.
The pituitary gland is considered the master gland controlling most hormones in the body. Subtle abnormalities of the pituitary can lead to significant health risks.
