Endocrinology at Sheridan Memorial Hospital

Hormones regulate many important functions in your body including the reproductive system, metabolism and growth and development. The endocrine system, which produces hormones, is constantly adjusting hormone levels in your body so that it can function normally.

Big Horn Endocrinology offers personalized, compassionate treatment for a wide range of metabolic and endocrine disorders for adults 18 years and older. Conditions such as Type 1 diabetes, thyroid cancer and other thyroid conditions, pituitary and adrenal disorders are handled by the experts at Big Horn Endocrinology.

Diabetes

Diabetes is a serious disease that can affect your whole body. It means that your body is not able to produce and use insulin properly and as a result there is more glucose (sugar) in your blood than normal. Uncontrolled diabetes can cause life-threatening complications and is one of the leading causes of heart disease, blindness, kidney failure and amputation.

Sheridan Memorial Hospital’s Diabetes Education Program can provide you with the tools and knowledge to make healthy food choices, monitor glucose levels, understand diabetes medications and prevent long term complications. Our two dedicated Diabetes Educators can help those diagnosed with Type 1, Type 2 and gestational diabetes. For more information on the Diabetes Education Program please consult with your physician.

Medicare and most private health insurances will cover 10 hours of outpatient diabetes education within the first year of being diagnosed and 2 hours of education per calendar year thereafter to assist in ongoing diabetes management.
