Complete treatment and support for diabetes and endocrine disorders

The Endocrine and Diabetes Care Center at UW Medical Center-Roosevelt offers a complete set of treatment, education and support services to diagnose and treat endocrine conditions and diabetes.

Our board-certified physicians treat a variety of thyroid, adrenal and calcium disorders; osteoporosis and metabolic bone diseases; male and female reproductive disorders; and polycystic ovary syndrome. Our endocrine tumor program provides advanced specialty care for patients with benign and malignant disease of the thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal glands. UW Medicine has the only endocrine tumor program in the region that offers dosimetry for radioactive iodine as a treatment.

We also serve people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, pre- and post-transplant diabetes and pancreatic diabetes, and we specialize in services for youth with diabetes who are transitioning into adult care. The Adolescent and Young Adult Diabetes Transition Clinic includes adult and pediatric care providers from the Diabetes Care Center and Seattle Children’s Hospital.

We work as a team to assist patients in becoming independent and active participants in their diabetes care. Our certified diabetes-education nurses provide patient support and resources, registered dietitians offer individualized nutritional counseling and our clinical pharmacists are specialists in diabetes medications.

As an accredited American Diabetes Association program, we offer comprehensive classes in diabetes management, and support groups are available for established patients.

The Diabetes Care Center is an internationally renowned participant in clinical research trials that help inform our understanding of the disease.
