Alterations in endocrine system function can be some of the most challenging issues primary care providers will manage in their practice. Many treatment options, both pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic, exist to treat and manage endocrine disorders. By relating the symptoms patients present with to the hormone regulation and feedback mechanisms providers will be able to individualize treatment options for their patients and currently manage or refer as indicated.
