and endocrinology at The Christ Hospital Health Network
Your endocrine system is made up eight major glands that produce and regulate your body’s many hormones. Your hormones play a vital role keeping your body’s processes running smoothly. Breathing, eating, growth, reproduction, metabolism and weight control are just a few of the areas in which your hormones hold center stage.
When your hormones are out of balance, it has the potential to disrupt nearly every area of your life as your endocrine system struggles to compensate.
The board-certified endocrinologists at The Christ Hospital Health Network have extensive expertise and training to diagnose and treat disorders of your endocrine system, like diabetes or thyroid disease. They work closely with a team of nurse practitioners, nurses, primary care providers, dietitians, certified educators and other specialists to provide comprehensive, individualized care from late adolescence through adulthood.
We understand that your time is valuable. Our outpatient services are offered in six convenient locations throughout Greater Cincinnati—including Liberty Township, Red Bank, Anderson, Milford, Green Township and Ft. Wright—to give you access to the care you need when you need it.
Most locations feature on-site certified diabetes educators who are available to share up-to-date diabetes self-management tools, nutrition information and fitness techniques to help you gain control of your health.
