If your child has problems with growth, puberty, diabetes, or other disorders
related to the hormones and the glands that produce them, our paediatric endocrinologist may
treat your child.
Children are not just small adults. As growing individuals, they have special needs related to growth and development. In addition, their psychological needs are different from those of adults. Hormone problems affecting growth or sexual development can have significant effects on a child’s physical and emotional well-being. Paediatric endocrinologists are sensitive to these issues. A paediatric endocrinologist cares for your child in a setting that is appropriate for children and teens. Support personnel, including nurses, psychologists, paediatric diabetes educators, and nutritionists, are all attuned to the needs of children and teens.
