Endocrinology and Metabolic Disease (Pediatrics)
Dana-Dwek Children’s Hospital
The Endocrinology and Metabolic Disease Unit treats children and adolescents with suspected hormonal imbalances—children with short or tall stature, premature or delayed sexual development, hypo- or hyper-thyroidism, hyper- or hypo-parathyroidism, adrenaline gland imbalances, hypopituitarism and hyperpituitarism. Juvenile diabetes is also treated in the unit.

- Calcium, phosphorous, and bone metabolism diseases: rickets, calcium imbalances, hyper- or hypo- parathyroid hormone imbalances (that regulate the body’s calcium levels)
- Adrenal gland disorders such as congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH)

Treatment is provided jointly by Pediatric Endocrinology, Pediatric Urology, and Pediatric Surgery.
