#Pediatric Endocrinology....A lot to know!!!

Pediatric endocrinology deals with disorders of the endocrine glands and the hormones play a central role in driving the children growth and development. Growth, puberty and sexual development problems often have their roots in the endocrine system. Type 1 diabetes mellitus is the most common disease that accounts for at least 50% of a typical clinical practise and the incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus has increased in children and adolescents and is linked to the rise in childhood obesity. Since Type 2 diabetes mellitus and its comorbidities are risk factors for vascular disease; it is basic for health care providers to distinguish and treat children and adolescents with this disorder. Growth disorders are another most common problem; especially those amenable to growth hormone treatment.
