The Frist Clinic
I have been going to Dr. Kevin Rigtrup for the past 10 years. Once a year, I'm always impressed by this clinic and the way they usher patients here and there so seamlessly. Everyone I've ever encountered here is friendly.

The Frist Clinic
Had asked for refer to Dr. Carlson, but was set up to see Dr. Aprill. I was there to see about Prolia to keep a lot of hardware and replacement joints secure, as my doctor recently retired. H was polite enough but unprofessional when he made it quite clear that the stability of my hardware was not his concern. That is ridiculous when the medication needed is to keep the bones from becoming more osteoporotic. Spent more time talking about my heart issues which are being treated, but ordered a bone density test after I made it absolutely clear that I had not repeated one for several years now that I cannot lie flat for the time required for that machine. Dr. Aprill is the second physician I have seen in different Frist Clinic offices that does NOT listen to the patient even when they present documentation! I certainly hope that all Endocrinologists are not like him.

Vanderbilt Endocrinology
We love the pediatric endocrinology team at Vanderbilt! I cannot say enough wonderful things about them! They have helped us through our son's diagnosis and taught us so much!
Tips & Advices
A metabolic disorder is a condition that occurs when the body's metabolic process is disrupted by dysfunctional chemical reactions. Some types of metabolic disorders are inherited, and these are usually caused a defective gene. Metabolic disorders may also be caused by a compromised liver or pancreas. The symptoms of this condition may include seizures, lethargy, weight loss, and jaundice.
Diabetes is a disease that affects the body's ability to generate or respond to insulin. Insulin is a hormone that's made by the pancreas, and it impacts your body's ability to properly manage its blood sugar levels. Diabetes can cause sugars to build up in the blood, and this can result in health problems such as heart disease, blindness, and kidney failure. In severe cases, diabetes may lead to amputations of the lower extremities.
Endocrinologists are doctors, and they must obtain a medical degree from an accredited medical school and meet certain requirements before beginning work as licensed physicians. An endocrinologist must complete an undergraduate pre-medical degree, four years of medical school, a three-year residency in internal medicine, and two to three years of fellowship training in endocrinology.
Part of the endocrine system, the pituitary gland is located at the base of the brain. The pituitary gland weighs about 0.5 grams and is about the size of a pea. It is often known as the body's "master gland" due to its role in overseeing the growth, development, and functioning of the body's other endocrine glands.
Osteoporosis is a bone disease in which tissue loss causes bones to become fragile and brittle. With this disease, bones are at a higher risk from damage and breaking. In severe cases of osteoporosis, even a sneeze or a minor bump can cause bones to break. Osteoporosis is commonly seen in those who are 50 and older, and it can be detected via a bone density test.
