What is Paediatric Endocrinology​

Paediatric endocrinology is a medical specialty focused on the diagnosis and treatment of hormone-related disorders in children and adolescents. Hormones are chemical messengers produced by various glands in the body, such as the pituitary gland, thyroid gland, adrenal glands, and pancreas. By providing personalised care, paediatric endocrinologists aim to promote the healthy growth and development of young patients, ensuring they reach their full potential.

Pediatric endocrinologists address conditions such as:
  • growth disorders
  • puberty disorders
  • thyroid disorders
  • diabetes
  • adrenal gland disorders
  • disorders of sexual development
