The National Endocrine and Metabolic Diseases Information Service (NEMDIS) is a service of the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK). The NIDDK is part of the National Institutes of Health of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The NEMDIS provides information about endocrine and metabolic diseases to people with endocrine and metabolic diseases and to their families, health care professionals, and the public. The NEMDIS answers inquiries, develops and distributes publications, and works closely with professional and patient organizations and government agencies to coordinate resources about endocrine and metabolic diseases.
The NEMDIS distributes publications about endocrine and metabolic diseases through the National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse (NDIC), provided free of copyright, in varying reading levels. Patients, health care professionals, and the general public can order publications through an online publications catalog. The NDIC also sends publications to health fairs and community events. All publications produced by the NEMDIS and the NDIC are carefully reviewed by both NIDDK scientists and outside experts.
