Diagnosing, treating and managing a wide range of hormonal conditions
Endocrinology covers a broad range of disorders related to hormonal dysfunction, such as diabetes, but also includes a range of other conditions leading to abnormal growth or impaired physical development such as short stature, early or late onset puberty. All these conditions require professional diagnosis, treatment and ongoing care.
Our paediatric endocrinologist can help make an accurate diagnosis and develop a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to your child’s specific needs, while helping you learn how best to manage your child’s condition.
With extensive expertise in the diagnosis, treatment and management of endocrine disorders in children our paediatric specialists also have access to specialised endocrine testing at Sydney Children’s Hospital and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. The clinic can assess and treat a variety of hormonal related issues experienced by children, including:
- Type 1 & Type 2 diabetes
- Short stature
- Thyroid disorders
- Pubertal development issues
- Adrenal disorders
- Metabolism disorders
- Calcium and bone health
As a multi-disciplinary paediatric clinic our other specialists are also available for consultation if your child has a separate, related condition. Working closely together we ensure that they receive the most appropriate care in a safe, warm and reassuring environment.
Please ask for a referral to The Children’s Clinic or contact our friendly team directly to find out if we can help with any aspect of your child’s health needs.
