Endocrinology

St. Luke’s Pediatric Endocrinology service and its expert care providers specialize in the evaluation and treatment of issues with growth, puberty, diabetes and other disorders related to the hormones and the glands that produce them. Problems seen by pediatric endocrinologists are often quite different from those commonly seen by endocrinologists who care for adults. Our specialists work closely with other specialists and your pediatrician or family physician to meet your child’s individual needs.

Some conditions we treat:

  • Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes
  • Growth problems ("short stature")
  • Disorders of the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, parathyroid glands, adrenal gland, ovary or testis
  • Vitamin D deficiency
  • Thyroid disease
  • Premature or delayed puberty
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome
  • Problems related to weight
