Have you noticed your child’s health is suffering from disorders involving growth, puberty, diabetes, or other hormone-related issues?
The Pediatric Endocrinology team at Middletown Medical may be able to help.
WHAT IS ENDOCRINOLOGY?
Endocrinology is the field of medicine that focuses on the endocrine system, its diseases, and its specific secretions known as hormones. Hormones are important chemicals that affect the efficiency of how the rest of the body runs. In children, hormones are responsible for how the body grows and matures.
WHY SHOULD MY CHILD SEE A PEDIATRIC ENDOCRINOLOGIST?
Practicing pediatric endocrinology varies greatly from endocrinologists who treat adult patients. Our pediatric endocrinologist is specially trained in many pediatric conditions, especially in regards to growth and development. In addition, a pediatric endocrinologist is experienced in treating children for hormone disorders through all stages, from childhood, to adolescence, and through the teenage years.
HOW CAN A PEDIATRIC ENDOCRINOLOGIST HELP MY CHILD?
Pediatric endocrinologists specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of a wide range of hormone-related diseases and disorders, including the following:
