Pediatric Endocrinology

Pediatric Endocrinology is subspecialty in Pediatrics dealing with growth and hormonal disorders in children, such as variations of physical growth like short stature or tall stature, disorders of sexual development like atypical genitalia, childhood diabetes and many more. Pediatric endocrinologists care for patients from infancy to late adolescence and young adulthood

Who are Pediatric Endocrinologists?

The pediatric endocrinologists are the ones who treat children with problems such as growth, puberty, diabetes, or other disorders related to the hormones and the glands that produce them. Problems seen by pediatric endocrinologists are often quite different from those commonly seen by endocrinologists who care for adults. Special training in pediatric conditions as they relate to growth and development is important. Pediatric endocrinologists deal with hormone disorders at all stages of childhood and the teen years.
