Nearly one in 10 Americans has diabetes, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC). More alarming, more than a one-third of adults in the United States have prediabetes – a condition that puts one at risk for developing diabetes – and the majority don’t even know it.
Our endocrinologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of both Type 1 & Type II diabetes. Our diabetic educators teach you to manage your diabetes whether you are under the care of our endocrinologists or your primary care physician.
Women who have diabetes and are pregnant or would like to become pregnant have special health care needs. Healthy mothers and babies is St. Luke’s goal.
Services offered include:
As board-certified endocrinologists, our physicians specialize in glands and the hormones they produce. These hormones help to control many activities in the body including metabolism, respiration, sensory perception, movement, reproduction, food absorption, growth and development. Hormone imbalances are the underlying reason for a wide range of medical conditions.
Among the conditions we diagnose and treat are:
- Hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism
- Hypocalcemia and hypercalcemia
- Disorders of the pituitary and parathyroid glands
- Disorders of the testes or ovaries
- Disorders of the hypothalamus
Physicians who are board certified in both pediatrics and endocrinology provide diagnostic and treatment services for children and adolescents with endocrine disease, including Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.
St. Luke’s Center for Diabetes & Endocrinology provides several classes to help patients understand and better manage diabetes.
