Pediatric Diabetes & Endocrinology
Hormones are usually thought to affect teens and adults. But children also can have a variety of hormone-related conditions that control their growth, weight, blood sugar levels, hypertension and even bone density. If these hormones are out of balance, it can result in diabetes, obesity and other conditions. If your child’s hormones need medical attention, contact the experts at Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital. We have the largest pediatric endocrinology program in Michigan and our advanced diagnostics can help identify the sources of your child’s health issues. We also offer a wide range of treatment programs to help our patients get back on track. Our team works closely with other pediatric specialists to provide comprehensive care.
For your convenience, we offer pediatric endocrinology clinics in Grand Rapids, Muskegon, St. Joseph and Traverse City.
