Pediatric Endocrinology

Pediatric endocrinology is a specialized field of medicine that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of endocrine disorders in children, from infancy to adolescence. It deals with the study of hormones and their impact on growth, development, metabolism, and overall health in the pediatric population.

Children have unique hormonal requirements and undergo significant changes in their endocrine system as they grow and develop. Pediatric endocrinologists are medical professionals who specialize in evaluating and treating endocrine disorders in children. They work closely with a multidisciplinary team, including pediatricians, nurses, dietitians, and psychologists, to provide comprehensive and individualized care to young patients.
