Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes
The Division of Pediatric Endocrinology and Diabetes offers a wide variety of clinical services, research and training opportunities. In addition to the diagnosis and treatment of endocrinological problems, our faculty members are also involved in a variety of basic science and clinical research.
The division is staffed by a team of physicians and nurses, including certified diabetes educators. The division offers expertise in all areas of pediatric endocrinology, including disorders of growth, puberty, sex differentiation, glucose metabolism, bone and mineral metabolism, the pituitary/hypothalamus, the thyroid, the adrenal and the gonads.
The Johns Hopkins Pediatric Diabetes Center employs a multidisciplinary approach in which a team consisting of physicians, nurse educators, a dietician, a behavioral health specialist and a social worker provides comprehensive care of children and adolescents with diabetes, including cystic fibrosis-related diabetes, and support to their families.
