Expert Care for Endocrine, Thyroid and Diabetes Problems
The endocrine system includes glands and organs that the body uses for many functions, including growth, metabolism (converting food into energy and using that energy) and reproduction, among others. Treating conditions that affect these vital functions requires a team with vast experience. Dr. Saif provides expert care for patients with endocrine conditions such as:

•Diabetes mellitus (including Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes)
•Diseases of the parathyroid glands (small glands that regulate the body’s calcium levels), including hyperparathyroidism (a condition in which one or more parathyroid glands become too
•Diseases of the thyroid gland (a gland in the neck that is involved with the body’s metabolism, growth and development), such as hyperthyroidism (an overactive thyroid) and hypothyroidism
(an underactive thyroid)
•Cancers of the endocrine system, including thyroid cancer and tumors of the pituitary gland (a small gland in the center of
the head that makes many different hormones and coordinates the function of the body’s other glands)
•Disorders of the adrenal system (glands above the kidneys that help regulate the body’s metabolism, immune system and other important functions)
•Pituitary disorders
•Osteoporosis and other metabolic bone diseases
