What is a pediatric endocrinologist?
A pediatric endocrinologist may treat your child’s growth, puberty, diabetes, or hormone and gland issues.
Chemicals called hormones alter biological functions. Hormones affect child development. Pituitary glands produce hormones into the bloodstream. Endocrinology examines these glands and hormones.Pediatric endocrinologists treat hormone abnormalities from birth to adolescence.
What distinguishes hypothyroidism from hyperthyroidism?
The thyroid gland produces and stores the metabolic hormone thyroid hormone (TH). Hypothyroidism arises from low TH production (underactive thyroid). Hyperthyroidism stems from excessive TH release (overactive thyroid). Graves’ disease causes most hyperthyroidism. Hypothyroidism is often caused by Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, autoimmune thyroid inflammation. Pediatric Endocrinologists diagnose and treat underlying conditions.
What causes common children's developmental disorders?
Endocrine illnesses can deplete or overproduce hormones, causing failure in children and adolescents. Pituitary gland injury causes growth hormone insufficiency . X chromosomal abnormalities cause Turner syndrome, a prevalent hereditary developmental condition in girls. Puberty-related sexual development doesn’t happen spontaneously since the ovaries don’t mature. Children with Turner syndrome or renal issues receive growth hormone injections and thyroid medications.
How is a growth problem diagnosed?
Doctors diagnose growth issues in several ways. Medical history, physical exam, and X-rays will help your child’s doctor diagnose.
Possible assessment and diagnosis:
1.Observing your child’s growth over several months, with blood testing to rule out hormonal, chromosomal, or other growth failure issues.
2.Hand bone X-ray for maturity and growth potential
3.studying the pituitary gland, which releases growth hormone and other hormones.
Are hormonal issues inherited?
Well, not consistently. Without a doubt, genes play a role in some endocrinology-related issues.
