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.

Specialty treatment areas

In a kid-friendly environment, skilled clinicians in the unit provide quality treatment for the following conditions:

  • 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)
  • Disorders of sexual development: intersex; lack of compatibility between chromosomes and sexual organs; disorders of male hormone production; or disorders in male hormone function (hormone resistance). Treatment is provided jointly by Pediatric Endocrinology, Pediatric Urology, and Pediatric Surgery.
