Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism
In the University Of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System's Department of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism, advancements are being made in the diagnosis, management and study of endocrine and metabolic disorders. The latest diagnostic and therapeutic techniques are used in the clinical evaluation and management of diabetes and other metabolic disorders.
Our endocrinology clinic provides care to patients with endocrine and metabolic disorders that include hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, thyroid cancer pituitary tumors, adrenal insufficiency, osteoporosis, hyperaldosteronism and forms of congenital adrenal hyperplasia.
State-of-the-art care is provided to patients with various stages and complications of diabetes including diabetes mellitus type 1 and 2, insulin pump therapy, post-renal transplantation care, obesity, neuropathy, retinopathy, nephropathy and diabetes-associated congenital syndromes.
Our facility also features a Diabetes Wellness Education Program. A Center of Excellence certified for diabetes education by the American Diabetes Association, the clinic provides a survey of the latest technology and techniques. There are computers to provide information and track personal data, a display of diabetes medical devices and classes ranging from "Understanding Insulin" to "Counting Carbohydrates," taught in both English and Spanish.
Our specialists are involved in leading research efforts into understanding the causes and consequences of the lipid disorders that accompany diabetes and obesity, the causes and treatment of metabolic complications of polycystic ovarian syndrome, regulation of glucose metabolism in the liver, the metabolic effects of growth hormone and the prevention of osteoporosis. Diabetes patients benefit from a nursing staff committed to maintaining appropriate glucose levels throughout a patients hospital stay.
