Endocrinology is the study of the endocrine system, and at Atlantic Endocrinology & Diabetes Center our endocrinologists specialize in treating conditions that originate from this system. With special tools and training, our doctors are able to diagnose specific illnesses and conditions related to Weight Management issues, whether they’re due to the thyroid gland, hypothalamus, or pituitary gland. Seeing an endocrinologist can help you lose weight by first helping you regulate the hormones in your body, allowing your metabolism to absorb and expend energy more efficiently.
The endocrine system is a complex assortment of organs that have significant sway over the functions of the body, and allowing your condition to go unaddressed can be a safety risk.
One of the most common conditions related to untreated endocrine complications due to Weight Management is diabetes; without careful monitoring, treatment, and lifestyle changes, you can jeopardize your safety and risk your life in the process.
Diabetes is probably the most well-known condition related to the endocrine system, but it’s far from the only one. Don’t hold off on seeing the specialist you need; waiting can have significant negative consequences that may harm your body. Our endocrinologists are experts and can assist you in diagnosing and treating your condition, giving you the best chance to get your body under control.

Obesity is diagnosed using a formula based on height and weight called the body mass index (BMI). Higher BMIs are associated with greater risk of health problems. A normal BMI is 18.5 to 24.9. Adults with a BMI of 30 or more are considered obese. Measuring waist circumference can also be helpful in determining risk of obesity-related diseases.
While many people have a genetic predisposition to obesity, our team can identify other causes and monitor for complications in weight management. These secondary conditions, which frequently have endocrine causes, can be identified through a careful medical history, physical exam, blood tests, saliva tests and X-rays, if needed.
