If you're looking for trans friendly endocrinologists or endocrinologists for transgender people you're in the right place. TransFriendly lists thousands of businesses around the world over that welcome and support transgender and non-binary people, including specialists in trans endocrinology.
An endocrinologist is a doctor that treats diseases related to problems with hormones, and can be a pivotal port of call in your transitioning journey, by guiding you through the process of hormone therapy. They can also diagnose and treat hormone problems and the complications that arise from them.
Hormones regulate metabolism, respiration, growth, reproduction, sensory perception, and movement. Hormone imbalances are the underlying reason for a wide range of medical conditions that your endocrinologist can help you with, such as diabetes and thyroid problems.
At your first visit, your endocrinologist will perform a physical exam to check your thyroid gland and look for symptoms of a thyroid problem, such as dry skin or a slow heart rate. You will probably have blood tests, too, to determine whether your body is low on thyroid, and check for any other underlying problems.
Gender-affirming treatment of transgender people requires an approach in which endocrinologists play a crucial role. The guidelines for transgender women include estrogens in combination with androgen-lowering medications. Feminising treatment with estrogens and antiandrogens provides physical changes, such as enhanced breast growth, reduction of facial and body hair growth, and fat redistribution in a female pattern. Your endocrinologist will be available for you to discuss all options and routes you’d like to take, including discussing benefits and side effects.
When you are facing a diagnosis of a hormonal condition, like diabetes mellitus or thyroid disease, your primary doctor may suggest that you see an endocrinologist. They can also be vital in understanding why you may be having infertility or growth problems, and guiding you through the processes of having hormonal treatments when transitioning.
