Pediatric Endocrinology

Pediatric Endocrinology

Pediatric endocrinology is a specialty that deals with pediatric issues of growth, puberty, diabetes, or other conditions involving hormonal changes. A child's hormones can have an impact on how various biological systems function. They control a child's growth and rate at which they mature as they grow. Growth disorders, osteoporosis, bone disorders, rickets, childhood obesity, lipid disorders can all be caused by changes in the endocrine system.
