Endocrinology

Endocrinology

The endocrine function of the human body is complicated and consist of a number of components that work in harmony with each other. There are quite a few ways that any of the components might fail to function or fail. Your body might fail to produce a fair bit of a certain hormone or in excess of another hormone. On the other hand, your body might be producing the right quantities of a hormone but fails to send it to the right places. The endocrinologists at the Family Medical Clinic understand this system well and know how to counteract or prevent the above issues from arising.

At Family Medical Clinic we have a team of highly motivated and experienced endocrinologists who are pushing the boundaries of the field and provide patients with top levels of care and service.

Paediatric Endocrinology

We also provide long term care for patients and support them from infancy to their late teens or early twenties. This form of continuous treatment helps promote age-appropriate care and ensures smooth transition for these patients who have chronic conditions.
