Find the support and expertise you need to manage diabetes, thyroid disease, and pituitary and adrenal gland disorders.
The hormone-producing glands of the endocrine system may be small, but they have a very large impact on your overall health. Even a slight imbalance within your endocrine system can wreak havoc on your health. Left untreated, you may develop an endocrine disorder or disease, including diabetes, pituitary and hormonal disorders, or thyroid and adrenal disorders.
Diabetes, a disease that is very prevalent in eastern North Carolina, affects the body’s ability to produce and/or use insulin. The three main types of diabetes are type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes.
At Vidant Health, our endocrinology experts can help those living with endocrine disorders reduce symptoms and improve quality of life. We combine patient education and lifestyle changes with appropriate use of medication, insulin pumps, and glucometers or continuous glucose monitors.
