Everyone is different and our hormones are too. Hormones and glands make up the endocrine system which helps your body achieve balance. It’s important to maintain a healthy balance within this system because it interacts with and influences other parts your body.

Diabetes is the most common endocrine disease in South Carolina. It affects the body’s ability to produce and use insulin. There are three types of diabetes.
Type 1 – Your body does not make insulin.
Type 2 – Your body does not make enough insulin or doesn’t use it the right way.
Gestational – This happens to pregnant women when the hormone made by the placenta prevents the body from using insulin as it should.
Don’t let diabetes control you. CMC Endocrinology experts can help you build a plan to manage your disease. Education, lifestyle changes, medications and other devices are used to help reduce various symptoms. We also emphasize good nutrition and diet because they are crucial to controlling blood sugar.
