Your Health Is Our Primary Concern
Diabetes and Endocrinology Specialists is totally focused on managing diabetes and other hormonal disorders. Our goal is to establish a positive relationship, beginning with your first appointment with us. We listen to your concerns and help you understand your management and treatment options so you can make the choices that best support your wellness goals.
What is endocrinology?
The endocrine system secretes chemical messengers called hormones, which travel through the bloodstream to various tissues or organs in the body. A problem with the hormone itself, its production, its movement through the body or its activity at the target tissue causes an endocrine disease. Endocrinology is the study of hormones and their related diseases.
What we do
We use diagnostic tests, such as blood work and ultrasounds, to diagnose and monitor your condition. Since many of the conditions we treat are chronic, we will work with you on a long-term management plan to help minimize the impact of the disorder. Our physicians and certified nurse practitioners work closely together to coordinate all aspects of your care.
Resources for diabetes
Many of our patients have diabetes. We provide medical management, as appropriate. We offer nutritional counseling on site, and we work closely with the Diabetes & Nutrition Center at Lancaster General Health so our patients have access to diabetes nutrition consultations and other services. Our patients with diabetes or pre-diabetes can also take advantage of valuable information from a trusted provider at the LG Health Diabetes Online Community, where you’ll find:
Helping prevent diabetes
Studies show that dietary and lifestyle changes can prevent or delay the onset of Type 2 diabetes in people who are at risk, which includes those with prediabetes/borderline diabetes, those in certain ethnic groups, those 45 and older, those with relatives who have diabetes and those who are overweight. Use our interactive Diabetes Risk Profiler to learn about your risk of getting diabetes. Print the results to discuss with your doctor.
Resources to manage chronic conditions
Our patients with diabetes or other chronic conditions can manage their health using a safe, secure online tool. MyLGHealth lets you request prescription refills, view recent lab results related to your condition, get preventive health reminders, review recommend goals that your doctors have set to help you control your condition - and check your progress toward each goal. It’s all available to you at your convenience, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
