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-renown 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.
The key to getting your life back starts with getting the right information from an expert Endocrinologist who is dedicated to educating and treating patients with all types of hormonal disorders. Endocrinologist Theodore C. Friedman, MD, PhD is dedicated to providing just that. Check out our collection of articles, videos and webinars backed by research that Dr. Friedman wrote on the detection and treatment of hormone imbalances, pituitary, thyroid, adrenal disorders, low testosterone, menopause and Cushing’s disease/syndrome.
Dr. Friedman primarily works with adults, he does diagnose and treat children who could have Cushing’s syndrome or thyroid problems, but does not deal with growth (kids with short stature) or developmental/pubertal problems.
