The endocrine system controls many different body functions. Endocrine disorders may cause a significant range of illnesses that could affect every organ and system of the body. When endocrine disorders develop, too much or too little hormone is secreted by a specific gland because the gland stops functioning properly due to illness, surgical removal or natural causes.


Selkirk Endocrinology in North Idaho, strives to understand the core basis of endocrine diseases and the endocrine system. Research continues to develop more effective treatments so Selkirk Endocrinology can provide the highest standard of care to improve the lives of patients with endocrine disorders.


The Selkirk Endocrine Clinic in Post Falls specializes in treating hormone disorders of the following endocrine glands:  



The Thyroid is an endocrine gland located in the neck. The thyroid gland secretes thyroid hormones, which influences the metabolism. Selkirk Endocrinology treats all aspects of Thyroid Disease including: hypothyroid, hyperthyroid, Graves’ disease, thyroid nodule, goiter and thyroid cancer.



The parathyroid glands are tiny glands in the neck that control the body's calcium levels. Each gland is about the size of a grain of rice. Selkirk Endocrinology treats all parathyroid dysfunctions including hyperparathyroid, hypoparathyroid, hypercalcemia and hypocalcemia to restore normal function.



Bone Metabolism disorders are commonly due to abnormalities in minerals that affect bone density. Dr. Lyko treats osteoporosis, hypercalcemia, hypocalcemia and vitamin D deficiencies.



The Pituitary Gland makes and disperses hormones that affect growth and the functions of many other glands in the body. Selkirk Endocrinology treats pituitary nodules, prolactinoma, acromegaly, growth hormone deficiency, Cushing Disease, panhypopituitarism and diabetes insipidus.



Adrenal glands sit on top of each kidney and their main function is to produce hormones that help the body burn protein, burn fat, regulate blood sugar and regulate blood pressure. The most important adrenal hormones are cortisol and aldosterone. Dr. Adam Lyko at Selkirk Endocrinology in Post Falls treats adrenal insufficiency, Cushing Syndrome, Pheochromocytoma, Conn’s Syndrome and Adrenal Adenoma



Testicular glands are part of the endocrine system because they produce and secrete testosterone—a hormone that is important to the normal development of male physical characteristics. Selkirk Endocrinology treats Low Testosterone, (Low T) Gynecomastia, Kallman Syndrome and Klinefelter Syndrome.



Ovarian glands are a part of the endocrine system because they secrete important female hormones- estrogen and progesterone are vital to reproductive development and fertility. Selkirk Endocrinology treats menopause, premature ovarian failure, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), hirsutism and Turner Syndrome.



The Pancreas lies next to the stomach and produces enzymes that break down carbohydrates, proteins, lipids and nucleic acids in the food we eat. The pancreas is part of the endocrine system because it secretes the hormones, insulin and glucagon, to control blood sugar levels. Selkirk Endocrinology treats diabetes mellitus type 1 and 2 and insulinoma.



Cholesterol is essential for life and your body needs cholesterol to work properly. Selkirk Endocrinology will treat hyperlipidemia, (high level of fat (lipids) in your blood) hypertriglyceridemia (high level of fat (triglycerides) in the blood) and obesity.
