About the Discussion

Ask the Experts: Endocrinology

The endocrine system is a finely tuned system of homeostatic balance that involves a complex network of organs with diverse functions and pathology, all of which can overwhelm new residents. When and how do you begin calcium supplementation in post parathyroidectomy patients? What are the differences between Cushing syndrome and Cushing disease? How do you keep track of the ever-growing list of oral hypoglycemics for treating patients with type 2 diabetes and which medication should be prescribe first? Or perhaps you are interested in a career in endocrinology and want to know more about it. We’ve invited endocrinologists from across the country to answer your most perplexing questions about the endocrine system and address the challenges of diagnosing and treating patients with endocrine problems. Please join us for the next installment of our Ask the Expert series.
