Conditions We Treat at UPMC Department of Endocrinology


  • UPMC's board-certified endocrinologists treat people with complex diabetes. To help you manage your diabetes, they will refer you to Diabetes Self-Management Education (DSME) classes through the UPMC Diabetes Centers or to a one-on-one education visit with our diabetic educators.
  • These classes teach patients ways to self-manage diabetes and connect them with educators, health care professionals, and other people with diabetes who can become part of the support team.


  • At UPMC, we take a multidisciplinary approach toward preventing and treating obesity in children and adults. Our researchers seek to advance understanding of the causes of obesity. Our endocrinologists work closely with bariatric surgeons to approach obesity from both a medical and surgical perspective.
  • We offer a clinically proven, medically supervised weight loss program incorporating behavioral support. Learn more about our medically supervised weight loss program (PDF).
