Endocrinology deals with the hormones and glands in our bodies. Common endocrine disorders include diabetes and thyroid conditions, and if left untreated, these conditions can lead to serious complications, such as heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, blindness, and amputation. Fortunately, proper care and treatment of endocrine disorders significantly decrease these risks and complications.
Endocrinology at Winneshiek Medical Center is provided on an outreach basis by Mayo Clinic and Mayo Clinic Health System endocrinologists. To schedule an endocrinology appointment, first visit your primary care doctor to discuss your symptoms and they will decide if a consultation with an endocrinologist is right for you.
