The endocrine system produces the hormones your body needs to work correctly. Glands in the endocrine system include the thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary, and adrenal glands, among others.
The Department of Endocrinology at the Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene provides evaluation and diagnosis of the full range of endocrine problems. These include thyroid, pituitary, adrenal, and parathyroid diseases, as well as diabetes and disorders of bone mineral metabolism.
- Members of the DHK Endocrinology Department diagnose, evaluate, and treat a number of hormone-related conditions.
- Many of these conditions are caused by the endocrine system producing too few, or too many, hormones.
- Our Diabetes program supports the full range of diabetes care, including dietary counseling, insulin pumps and a wide range of diabetes educational activities.
