About Course

Our endocrinology care includes expertise and resources to diagnose and treat endocrine disorders, and the hormone imbalances they cause, by restoring normal hormone balance with medications or other therapies, diet and nutrition.

When there is an imbalance of your child’s hormones, it can cause bothersome and often serious problems. The most common endocrine disorders are related to problems of the pancreas or the pituitary, thyroid, or adrenal glands. These problems can be caused by either a hormonal imbalance or by tumors.
