The Division of Pediatric Endocrinology is comprised of three board-certified pediatric endocrinologists and one pediatric nurse practitioner. The Division evaluates and treats children from birth to college age who have the following diagnoses/conditions (in order of frequency):

  • Diabetes Mellitus 
    insulin-dependent (Type I diabetes)
    non-insulin dependent (Type II diabetes)
  • Growth disorders
  • Thyroid conditions (congenital or acquired; over-active/under-active)
  • Disorders of timing of puberty (delayed or precocious)
  • Other glucose regulatory problems (hypoglycemia, impaired glucose tolerance, hyperinsulinism)
  • Calcium disturbances (hypocalcemia, hypercalcemia, osteoporosis)
  • Adrenal gland disorders

The Division actively works in conjunction with the American Diabetes Association Certified Diabetes Education Program at Palmetto Health Richland Hospital and its very proactive insulin pump treatment. The Division is also involved in clinical research involving a variety of hormonal disturbances.
