Pediatric Endocrinology

Pediatric endocrinology deals with disorders of the endocrine glands in children, including variations in physical growth and sexual development during adolescence, diabetes, and more. The most common condition in this field is type-1 diabetes, which typically comprises a significant portion of a pediatric endocrinologist's clinical practice. Another common focus is growth disorders, particularly those that can be addressed with growth hormone therapy.

Pediatric endocrinologists play a key role in the medical care of infants and children with intersex disorders. The specialty also addresses hypoglycemia, various forms of hyperglycemia in childhood, variations in puberty, as well as adrenal, thyroid, and pituitary disorders. Many pediatric endocrinologists have specialized interests and expertise in areas such as bone metabolism, lipid metabolism, adolescent gynecology, or inborn errors of metabolism.
