The Best Diabetes Care for Children and Adolescents

Welcome to Pediatric Endocrinology at Crystal Run. Pediatric endocrinologists are doctors who specialize in the diagnosis, management, and treatment of children with disorders related to the endocrine system.

The endocrine system contains glands (e.g., the pituitary gland, adrenal glands, the thyroid gland, reproductive glands, and others) that produce hormones—chemical substances that regulate many important functions in the body.

Pediatric endocrinologists may specialize in a particular area, such as pediatric diabetes, or focus on pediatric endocrine disorders more generally.

Our specialists are fellowship-trained in Pediatric Endocrinology and treat children and adolescents ranging from newborn to age 21 with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, growth and/or pubertal abnormalities, obesity, disorders of sex development (DSD), bone and mineral disturbances, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), and other disorders relating to the adrenal, parathyroid, thyroid, and pituitary glands.
