Endocrinology

The Section of Endocrinology and Diabetes offers comprehensive clinical services, research and training opportunities. Our faculty and staff provide diagnostic and therapeutic services for children and adolescents with:

  • Thyroid, adrenal, and pituitary diseases
  • Disorders of growth and pubertal development
  • Diabetes mellitus, hypoglycemia, and the metabolic syndrome
  • Disorders of mineral metabolism

Since diabetes mellitus (both type 1 and type 2) can have a profound effect on the life of a child and his/her family, teams of physicians, nurses, certified diabetes educators, social workers and nutritionists in our diabetes service employ a multidisciplinary approach to provide medical care, education and support to our patients and their caregivers.
