For Pediatric Endocrine Disorders
Every child should grow and change in the healthiest ways possible. Many changes in a child's body are determined by hormones that are produced by the endocrine glands. If these hormones aren’t in balance, a child's health can be greatly affected. At AdventHealth for Children, formerly Florida Hospital for Children, our endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism program includes some of the leading pediatric endocrinology experts in the country. They can skillfully diagnose the problem and formulate an effective treatment plan that will address endocrine system conditions like hypothyroidism, pituitary disorders and growth issues head on.
The pediatric endocrinologists at AdventHealth for Children, formerly Florida Hospital for Children, understand that a child’s physiology is very different from that of an adult. As such, their endocrine system problems can be fundamentally different as well.

Treating the Body, Mind and Spirit
Because some of these conditions affect sexuality and growth, we also understand the psychological issues that can accompany endocrine disorders. Our care team not only treats the physical problems, but the emotional and spiritual ones as well. As such, your child’s care team may include psychologists, pediatric educators and nutritionists who are specially trained in treating the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of children and young adults.
