Children have unique issues with their endocrine (hormone) system. Endocrinologists provide specialized testing, as well as medical and surgical treatment, for hormone disorders that can result from malfunctioning kidneys, thyroid and pituitary glands, or other organs and glands. Because endocrine system illnesses have such an impact on a child’s physical maturity, it’s important to consult an endocrinologist who specializes in pediatrics.
Mercyhealth offers pediatric endocrinology specialty care that handles health issues that affect your child’s physical growth and maturity as well as endocrine-related cancers and diabetes.
