  • hypo/hyperthyroidism
  • hyper/hypocalcemia
  • precocious puberty

We also treat and educate both established and newly diagnosed diabetes patients and their families in self-management of all aspects of types 1 and 2 diabetes. For established diabetic patients and/or referred inpatients with diabetes, the Diabetes and Endocrine Care Center provides refresher education, as well as support groups. The clinic team consists of a nurse educator, dietitian, physician and social worker. Patients are seen through referral only. Children and young adults with thyroid tumors are seen by specialists in the Thyroid Tumor Program.
