Your endocrine system is responsible for getting messages to many other systems in your body. When that system is not working correctly, you may experience symptoms of hormone imbalances. This can include problems with metabolism and abnormal blood sugar levels. The providers at Novant Health Endocrinology & Thyroid specialize in diagnosing and treating conditions affecting the endocrine system and thyroid gland. You can rely on them to quickly assess your condition and provide an accurate diagnosis.

Whether your concern can be addressed with a lifestyle change, or requires treatment with medication or surgery, you can rely on your care team to present treatment options and help you choose the one that is right for you.

Some of the most common conditions we treat include:

  • Diabetes (a condition where the body cannot produce enough insulin to regulate blood sugar. This can lead to weight loss, skin infections, eye problems and nerve damage if left untreated.)
  • Disorders of the thyroid (a gland in the neck that helps control metabolism and calcium levels in the body), including underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) and overactive thyroid (hypothyroidism)
  • Disorders of the pituitary (a small gland located at the base of the skull that makes hormones which control growth, temperature regulation, urine production and some sexual functions)
  • Disorders of the adrenals (small glands located on the top of each kidney which play a role in metabolism, control body characteristics such as masculinization and help the body handle stress)

Services we offer include:

  • Assessments of diabetes symptoms, including excessive hunger or thirst, extreme fatigue, blurry vision, numbness in hands or feet, or cuts or bruises that seem slow to heal
  • Glucose monitoring
  • Training in administering insulin through an injection or pump
  • Access to our diabetic and nutrition educator (to learn about the importance of insulin and nutrition for diabetes control)
  • Ultrasound-guided biopsies for thyroid issues
  • Prescriptions for thyroid hormones and medications
  • Pituitary hormone therapy
  • Adrenal hormone therapy
