There are many different endocrine glands in the body such as pituitary, thyroid, adrenal and pancreas. An abnormality in any of the functions of these glands will produce an endocrine disorder or disease. An endocrinologist specializes in treating patients with these disorders.

Diabetes

Diabetes is a lifelong condition that affects the body’s ability to produce insulin. Insulin is responsible for processing sugars and carbohydrates and turning them into energy the body can use. There is still no cure for diabetes, but treating and managing the symptoms can help your child enjoy a healthy and happy life. The Sidra Medicine team can serve as your partner as you help your child learn to manage and cope with diabetes.

Children with diabetes need to learn how diabetes works so that they can manage it. The earlier a child starts learning how to build their diet and administer insulin injections, the easier it will be for them to turn diabetes management into a normal part of their daily routine as they get older.
