Pediatric Endocrinology

Every child suspected of having impaired growth, obesity or puberty should undergo an endocrinological evaluation.

One of the biggest concerns for parents these days is whether their child will reach their height target. Many are also concerned about the growing prevalence of obesity in children and adolescents and its complications such as diabetes and hypertension.


The third main reason to seek an endocrinologist is to assess whether the child is entering puberty at the right time, nowadays girls are presenting puberty at an increasingly early age with all the risks related to it, such as short stature in adulthood.

When in doubt, look for an endocrinologist.
