The endocrine system is made up of glands throughout the body that regulate the function, growth and development of tissues and organs by secreting hormones directly into the bloodstream. Endocrine disorders develop when a gland malfunctions and secretes either too much or too little of a hormone due to illness, surgical removal or natural causes. The Kernodle Clinic Department of Endocrinology and its endocrinologists are dedicated to delivering high-quality health care to patients with the full spectrum of endocrine and metabolic conditions.
Kernodle Clinic Endocrinology department offers evaluation and treatment to patients for endocrine and metabolic disorders. The body’s endocrine system includes the pancreas, the thyroid, parathyroid, pineal, hypothalamus, adrenal and pituitary glands, and the ovaries and testes. It also involves many other organs which respond to, modify, or metabolize hormones. We have experience with a wide range of common and uncommon Endocrine disorders.
In addition, our endocrinologists have privileges at Alamance Regional Medical Center and Duke University Health System and are supported by an experienced and compassionate team of nurses, technologists and staff.
