Partner with our specialists to manage your diabetes and endocrine disorders.

The human body contains a connected group of glands known as the endocrine system, which produces hormones that regulate many vital processes, including metabolism.

When a patient’s endocrine system produces too much or too little of these hormones, certain conditions can develop that require specialized care. We have assembled a team of experts to help you live a healthier life, providing courteous and timely endocrinology services for both adult and pediatric patients with a commitment to safe, high-quality and patient-centered care.

Our services include diagnosis of and treatment for Types 1 and 2 diabetes, thyroid or parathyroid disorders, adrenal gland and pituitary disorders, hypogonadism and disorders of bone metabolism and lipid metabolism. In addition, our pediatric endocrinology team provides special attention and care for children with diabetes.

Caring for Children with Diabetes

Our pediatric endocrinology team works with parents to help children with diabetes live an active and engaged life, control their diabetes and stay out of the hospital. We also care for children with a variety of hormone-related disorders.

Your team will customize a care plan based on your diagnosis, health goals, and lifestyle that may include one or more treatment options including, but not limited to:

An insulin pump delivers continuous and customized insulin doses 24 hours a day through a thin tube that goes under your skin. It is a small device that can help keep blood glucose levels within your target ranges without regular injections.

We’ll teach you to use the pump, including adjusting the settings and managing your pump during meals and exercise.

Healthy lifestyle choices, including eating healthier and staying active, are key to many treatment plans. Our registered dietitians and diabetes educators will partner with you and your doctor to develop a nutrition and fitness plan that works for your life.

When lifestyle changes alone aren’t enough, medication may be necessary. This can include oral or injectable medication. Our specialists and educators work with you to determine the proper drugs, doses and frequency and ensure you understand how to manage and adjust your medications as needed.

Surgery is most commonly performed on the thyroid but can also be performed on the pancreas, parathyroid and adrenal glands. Bariatric surgery referral is an option for patients who qualify. Bariatric surgery is the treatment for patients with obesity and diabetes.

Untreated or poorly controlled diabetes can lead to potentially serious or life-threatening complications, including heart disease, infections, kidney damage or nerve damage.

Our endocrinology team works with specialists in fields such as heart, kidney, feet and wound care to prevent and treat these conditions.
