So many of us believe that fatigue, weight gain, loss of libido, depression, anxiety and other problems are just symptoms we must learn to live with. What if these symptoms are not the result of stress, diet, or aging, but are actually caused by a hormonal disorder? Symptoms of hormone deficiency or excess may be subtle and difficult to diagnose.
Dr. Friedman is a world-renowned endocrinology expert in these difficult-to-diagnose diseases and is happy to see patients from around the world who need a straight answer to their hormone problems. He thinks out of the box (yet is well-grounded in conventional Endocrinology) and often diagnoses hormonal problems where other doctors have failed.
In addition to be an Endocrinologist and a member of the Endocrine Society since 1990, Dr. Friedman is also a member of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine (ACLM) and tries to incorporate the 6 pillars of lifestyle medicine (better diet, more exercise, better sleep, reducing stress, avoiding risky behaviors and better relationships) to complement, but not replace his approach to patients with Endocrine disorders.
