We at Maryland Endocrine appreciate the trust that the Central Maryland community has shown us over the years. The demand for endocrine services is high in our area, and we would like to continue to be able to evaluate people in a timely manner by focusing on areas where we offer special expertise. These include:
- Pituitary disease: pituitary tumors, pituitary insufficiency, high prolactin levels, acromegaly (high growth hormone levels), growth hormone deficiency.
- Thyroid disease: goiter, thyroid nodules and biopsy, thyroid cancer, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism.
- Diabetes Mellitus: type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, diabetes in pregnancy, hypoglycemia (low blood sugars). We provide placement of Eversense implanted continuous glucose monitors (CGM), as well as insulin pump and CGM management.
- Bone, calcium, and parathyroid disorders: osteoporosis, high and low calcium levels, hyperparathyroidism, hypoparathyroidism, Pagets disease.
- Adrenal disease: adrenal nodules, adrenal insufficiency, Cushing’s syndrome, classic and non-classic adrenal hyperplasia.
- Male reproductive disease: male low testosterone levels or abnormal breast development in men, gender affirming therapy.
- Female reproductive disease: polycystic ovarian syndrome, gender affirming therapy.
- Unusual forms of high blood pressure;
- High cholesterol, triglyceride and other lipid disorders;
- Endocrine disorders during pregnancy
Many common problems and symptoms seen by endocrine doctors don’t often have an endocrinology-based etiology or solution. We currently don’t provide treatment or evaluation for the following problems: weight gain, pre-diabetes or metabolic syndrome, irregular periods, hair loss, neuropathy not related to diabetes, and fatigue. People with these challenges are best seen by their primary care providers or OB/GYN providers, who can refer if there are features suggesting an endocrine problem. Those with infertility should be seen by reproductive endocrinologists or others who specialize in addressing fertility. The many treatments for obesity can be provided by primary care providers.
