Endocrinology

Overview

Welcome to the Division of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes at N.C. Children's Hospital and the UNC School of Medicine! Our expert clinicians diagnose and treat children with diseases and disorders of the hormones derived from endocrine glands, such as:

• Short stature and growth problems
• Deficiencies or excesses of hormones from the pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal or pancreas
• Endocrine disorders related to puberty and sexual differentiation
• Bone disorders like osteoporosis
• Type 1 and type 2 diabetes mellitus

We can accommodate new patients within two weeks of referral. Outpatients can choose care at N.C. Children's Hospital in Chapel Hill, the N.C. Children's Specialty Clinic on the Rex Healthcare campus in Raleigh or AHEC (Area Health Education Centers) clinics in Wilmington. (Clinical offerings vary by location.) The division's inpatient service also treats many patients hospitalized at N.C. Children's Hospital and provides consultation services to all medical specialties.

US News and World Report ranked ours the leading pediatric endocrinology and diabetes program in North Carolina on its 2010-2011 "America's Best Children’s Hospitals" list, and ours is the only program in the state offering specialized clinics for osteoporosis, lipid disorders and Turner syndrome.
