Metabolism, Endocrinology and Diabetes

Hormones play a major role in how we develop and grow, regulate sugar, metabolize food and so much more. The endocrine system, which includes the pituitary gland, thyroid gland, adrenal gland and pancreas, uses these hormones to "communicate" with the body. The Division of Metabolism, Endocrinology and Diabetes offers comprehensive services in the general area of endocrine and metabolic disorders, including:

  • Diabetes and diabetes complications
  • Abnormalities in body weight
  • Osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease
  • Abnormalities in calcium regulation
  • Diseases of the thyroid, pituitary and adrenal glands

In addition, we have several multidisciplinary clinics that offer specific, endocrine-related services, such as:

  • Intensive insulin treatment of diabetes for hospitalized patients
  • An Endocrine Oncology Program specializing in thyroid and adrenal neoplasms (abnormal mass of tissue)
  • Management of diabetes or thyroid disease during pregnancy
  • Evaluation and treatment of pituitary tumors
  • An outpatient endocrine testing unit for the performance of endocrine and metabolic stimulation, suppression and tolerance testing
  • A comprehensive Outpatient Diabetes Education Program
  • Wound care management and specialized treatment of the diabetic foot
