As your child begins to develop into a teen, it is important to recognize factors that may indicate they are struggling with growth, puberty, diabetes, or other disorders related to their hormones and glands. If you notice troublesome signs regarding any one of these areas, you may want to consider consulting with a pediatric endocrinologist.
Hormones, chemicals that affect how other parts of your body function, decide how a child advances through the growth process into adulthood. Endocrine glands release hormones directly into the bloodstream. The marrying of these two components gives us the study of Endocrinology, which is the science that analyzes these glands and the effects they have on hormones.
