Pediatric Endocrinology Print E-mail

Dr. Kennedy 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. Hormonal problems are often present for life. Pediatric endocrinologists deal with hormone disorders at all stages of childhood and the teen years.

Pediatric endocrinologists diagnose, treat, and manage hormonal disorders including the following:

  • Early or delayed puberty
  • Growth problems, such as short stature
  • Enlarged thyroid gland (goiter)
  • Underactive or overactive thyroid gland
  • Pituitary gland hypo/hyper function
  • Adrenal gland hypo/hyper function
  • Ambiguous genitals/intersex
  • Ovarian and testicular dysfunction
  • Diabetes
  • Low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)
  • Obesity
  • Problems with Vitamin D (rickets, hypocalcemia)
