Endocrinologists diagnose and treat disorders of the endocrine system, which includes thyroid disease, hormone imbalances, diabetes, metabolism disorders, hypertension, cholesterol issues and endocrine cancer.
Board-certified endocrinologist Khanh T. Pham
offers comprehensive treatments for these and other disorders and have offices at our Main Clinic
locations. One of their major areas of expertise is in the treatment of diabetes, which is thought to afflict over 20 million people in the U.S. alone.
Diabetes is caused by a shortage or resistance to insulin, a hormone that is produced by the pancreas to control blood sugar levels. Without proper diagnosis and treatment, the ill effects of diabetes may include fatigue, vision loss, peripheral vascular disease, hypertension, stroke and more.
Considering the complex and far-reaching implications of diabetes, our team works closely with the patient to properly manage the disease, working with them to prescribe regimens for medication, diet and exercise. Watson Clinic provides diabetes education
, which includes everything from diabetes self-management classes, individual appointments with certified diabetes educators, dietitians and a blood sugar monitoring classes. Foot care is also an important factor in diabetes treatment, as diabetes makes the feet vulnerable to infection.
