Reasons You May See an Endocrinologist
If you are facing a diagnosis such as a hormonal condition, like uncontrolled diabetes , thyroid or parathyroid disease, osteoporosis, etc., your doctor may suggest you see an endocrinologist. An endocrinologist, like Dr. Kawji, is a specialist who has studied hormonal and endocrine disorders and knows the best possible treatment.
Special Diabetes Treatment
Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to long-term complications such as vision problems, nerve damage or neuropathy, kidney problems, cardiovascular disease and stroke. There are different technologies such as the Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (CGMS), and new medications that can help to reduce the risk of complications. The goal is to develop a management plan that helps you gain control over the disease so that you maintain your best health.
Whatever your health care challenge, Dr. Kawji will partner with your primary care doctor to provide the solution that will provide the best outcome. For appointments, call 225-635-3269.
