Endocrine Function and Treatment
Your thyroid is a small gland in the front of your neck that is shaped like a butterfly. It produces hormones that control several of your body’s functions, some of which are metabolism, body temperature, muscle strength, and appetite. While an endocrinologist specializes in glands and the hormones they make, it is not necessary to see one for a gland issue.

FAQ for Endocrine Providers
You may have many questions when deciding how to choose a doctor and treat your thyroid condition.
When should I go to the doctor for my endocrine issues?
You should see a provider and check your thyroid if you:
- Have a family history of thyroid dysfunction
- Notice changes in mood and energy level
- Have trouble tolerating heat or cold
- Experience unexplained weight loss or gain
- Notice bowel habits have changed
- Endure menstrual irregularities
- Are losing your hair
- Have issues with memory
What kind of doctor can check my glands?
A routine blood test can determine if patients have a problem with their glands, such as hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. People with hypothyroidism typically have weak adrenal glands which can cause several issues. Thyroid disorders can be treated by your primary care physician or an endocrinologist who will prescribe medication. A functional medicine provider will work to ease the patient’s symptoms by making a plan that considers aspects of diet, lifestyle, exercise, stress relief, and sleep. If you want more than just a pill to combat your thyroid disease, contact Dr. Akhter of Madina Medicine to schedule your initial visit and diagnosis.
