Endocrine testing and treatment for diabetes, metabolism disorders and hormonal problems

From testing for thyroid problems to treatments for type 1 and type 2 diabetes and help for sexual dysfunction, SLUCare endocrinologists are experts on hormones and their effect on the body.

Our providers can consult with you on treatment options for problems with bone and mineral metabolism, such as osteoporosis. We also treat problems with the pituitary gland, adrenal gland and thyroid. We offer specialized endocrine testing and, in collaboration with SLUCare pathologists, offer fine needle aspiration biopsy of thyroid nodules.

Our endocrinologists treat hypertension and high cholesterol, and offer clinics for obesity, sexual dysfunction, the screening and management of diabetic foot problems, and faints and falls. SLUCare's clinical diabetes educators and nutritionists are also available for patient education, as is a program designed for visually-impaired people with diabetes.
