The Department of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism conducts disease-specific clinics for patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, gestational diabetes, post-pancreas transplant diabetes, pituitary disorders, obesity, thyroid/parathyroid disorders, and post-pancreas transplant and liver/adrenal tumor care needs. The department also offers a pituitary clinic staffed by endocrine medicine and surgical specialists, a preventive cardiology clinic, a calcium clinic, a transition diabetes clinic for adolescents ready for adult endocrine care, and a transgender clinic.
