Endocrine system comprises the thyroid, pituitary, hypothalamus and the parathyroid glands. The adrenal cortex, gonads, and pancreas are also a part of the system. These are actually glands that are responsible for the production of hormones and they are also responsible for a set of different functions like growth, metabolism, and sexual development and so on. If the hormones were to fall out of balance, then abnormalities may occur. Disorders can also occur and they can be fatal at times.

If your child is diagnosed with such issues, then you may be redirected to a pediatric endocrinologist. The child will be diagnosed, evaluated and then treated for the specific condition that they may be having. Most of the conditions come as a result of a deficiency in the endocrine system as well as overactivity.
