Endocrinology care.

Atri, 3, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2016. As part of a Promise Grant from the UNC Children's Office of External Affairs, the pediatric endocrinology clinic was able to give Atri his favorite superhero and a miniature diabetes kit so Atri has a friend who also needs diabetes care. Atri was so excited he immediately started "checking" Captain America's blood sugar during his visit.

Pediatric Endocrinology

UNC Children's pediatric endocrinology and diabetes healthcare providers aim to provide excellent, comprehensive, evidence-based care in a patient-centered environment. Your child and family are unique and should be treated as such. We recognize that there are multiple ways to provide optimal care for each individual patient. Our goal is to work with the family to determine optimal treatment options for our patient and facilitate success in treatment.

At UNC Children’s, you’ll get family-centered, long-term care for your child as s/he grows and develops, along with a seamless transition to adult endocrinology services as needed. You can trust your child is getting top-quality care because UNC Children’s diabetes and endocrinology programs are ranked by U.S. News & World Report’s Best Children’s Hospitals 2014–2015.

A Team Approach to Care

When you choose UNC Children’s for pediatric endocrinology, your child will benefit from a team of medical professionals, including board-certified pediatric endocrinologists, pediatric endocrinology fellows or pediatric residents, Certified Diabetes Educators, nutritionists and nurses.

Many children with endocrine disorders are at risk for social or adjustment problems. Our care team includes child psychologist and/or social worker to help our families find emotional support and facilitate access to resources in their communities.

You’re encouraged to let us know about any concerns you have with your child’s health, development or care at any time.
