Pediatric Endocrinology

When we think of hormones affecting our bodies, we usually think of teens and adults. But children also have a variety of hormones, released by their glands, that control things such as growth, weight, blood sugar levels, hypertension and even bone density. These hormones being out of balance can result in conditions such as diabetes, obesity and osteoporosis. When your child's hormones are out of balance, come to Helen DeVos Children's Hospital.

With the largest endocrinology program in Michigan, we are ready with the advanced diagnostics and treatments to help not only identify the source of your child's health issues but also help your child get back on track. Our team also works closely with other pediatric subspecialties to provide comprehensive care.
