Overview

When it comes to treating diabetes and endocrine disorders in kids, we rank as one of the best among children's hospitals, according to U.S. News & World Report. We have a team of board-certified pediatric endocrinologists, nurse practitioners and nurses who specialize in the care of children with growth, puberty, diabetes or other hormonal disorders. We are also recognized by the American Diabetes Association for Quality Self-Management Education.

Only one focus: kids.

If your child has problems with growth, puberty, diabetes or other disorders related to the hormones or the endocrine glands that produce them, we are here to help. 

We understand the special needs of growing children. Hormone problems that affect growth or sexual development can have significant effects on a child's physical and emotional well-being. We have the specialized knowledge and experience in diagnosing, treating and managing hormone disorders at all stages of childhood and the teen years.

Conditions we treat.

Endocrine problems affecting children are often quite different from those commonly seen in adults. We specialize in conditions as they relate to a child's growth and development. These include:

  • Adrenal disorders
  • Ambiguous genitalia
  • Diabetes
  • Early or delayed puberty
  • Growth problems, such as short stature
  • Low blood pressure (hypoglycemia)
  • Metabolism disorders
  • Obesity caused by an endocrine imbalance
  • Ovarian and testicular dysfunction
  • Pituitary disorders
  • Thyroid disease

We also offer specialized care in bone health as well as endocrine disorders in cancer survivors and children with cystic fibrosis and Turner syndrome.

Shared medical appointments.

If you're concerned about the wait time until your next office visit, you may want to consider a shared medical appointment. Led by a physician, nurse educator or dietitian, these appointments are held in a group setting on the first and second Wednesday of each month.

We group patients by age and health concerns so we can better address a child's specific medical condition and provide you with the opportunity to connect with others with similar needs. We also complete lab work and refill medications. Physicals are conducted by a physician in a private room prior to the appointment.

Shared medical appointments last 90 minutes and typically provide patients and their families with more information than they would've received at a one-on-one appointment.

Open Clinical Studies

Preventing Type 1 Diabetes in Relatives at Risk

This study is to find out if taking an oral insulin capsule by mouth will prevent or delay diabetes in people whose relatives already have type 1 diabetes. If someone in your family has type 1 diabetes, you and other family members may have an increased risk for developing diabetes. If you have diabetes, your body fails to produce enough insulin.

A study for relatives of people with type 1 diabetes

This study involves testing a small sample of blood from relatives of people with type 1 diabetes to see who may be at risk for developing diabetes. If the test is positive, additional testing will be offered to evaluate the likelihood of developing diabetes later in life.
