Dr Allahabadia jointly runs a busy regional Thyroid Eye / Endocrine Clinic with a Consultant Orbital and Oculoplastic Surgeon specialising in management of thyroid eye disease and works closely with nationally renowned endocrine surgeons as well as radiologists with a specialist interest in endocrine disorders ensuring the best care for his patients when radiological investigation, ophthalmology input or endocrine surgery are required.

What is an endocrinologist?

Hormonal and developmental disorders and related problems can be extremely vexing. Unlike many medical issues, it is not possible for patients to see their glands or the substances they produce, yet they play such a huge role in every aspect of our lives. Whether suffering from metabolic problems, diabetes, early or late-onset puberty, too little or too much growth, menopause, thyroid issues, menopause, infertility, or other disorders linked to hormones, the best practitioners to consult are endocrinologists. Finding a top endocrinologist is easy with Doctify.

When to see an endocrinologist?

The top endocrinologists have extensive training in diagnosing and treating all the aforementioned disorders. In addition to general medical training and a residency, the best endocrinologists must then study for several more years to become masters of the glands and hormones/hormonal and metabolic disorders that they will treat in their practice. Diabetes and thyroid problems are the most regular reason for patient visits to top-rated endocrinologists, followed closely by puberty, menopause, and infertility issues (when hormones are the suspected cause).

Making sure your chosen expert endocrinologists are fully qualified and certified is important – the advice and diagnoses that they can provide are only as good as their skills and abilities. Top endocrinologists found with Doctify are generally members of the Society for Endocrinology and the European Thyroid Association, at a minimum. Although dealing with hormonal and developmental problems can be daunting, owing to the “hidden” nature of what glands and hormones do in the body, the best endocrinologists can help and often fix major problems with medication, supplements, or related treatments. Sometimes, health and happiness really are just a pill away!
