The Division of Pediatric Endocrinology evaluates and treats disorders of the endocrine system in children, including growth problems, pubertal development, thyroid disorders and diabetes. Since these diseases can affect the lives of the entire family, counselors and specialists are also part of a team that helps children and families deal with every aspect of the disease.
Our outpatient clinics operate five days each week, seeing approximately 2,500 patients each year. Patients in Eastern Kentucky with diabetes mellitus can visit one of our traveling clinics devoted exclusively to the treatment and management of the disease.
Some of the pediatric endocrine disorders we treat are:
- Diabetes mellitus
- Growth disorders
- Pituitary gland disorders
- Thyroid disorders
- Problems of calcium metabolism
- Precocious and delayed puberty
- Adrenal gland disorders
