Introduction of department
- The Department of Pediatric Endocrinology and Metabolism of Children’s Hospital has been continuing the best medical treatment, education, and research on hormone and genetic-related diseases secreted by endocrine organs since the first introduction of pediatric endocrinology in 1960.
- Diseases under treatment at the Department of Pediatric Endocrinology and Metabolism are diseases related to endocrine hormonal abnormalities such as diabetes, short stature, puberty disorders (precocious puberty, puberty delay), disorders of sexual differentiation, thyroid-related diseases, parathyroid and bone metabolism diseases, adrenal gland diseases, and pituitary diseases. Besides, the center is in charge of treating rare disorders, including hereditary syndromes that are highly related to endocrines, such as Turner syndrome, Prader-Willi syndrome, and Klinefelter syndrome and Down syndrome. The center also provides a wide range of medical treatments to improve patient’s quality of life by helping them cope with chronic diseases such as Crohn's disease after treatment for premature infants, low birth weight, and childhood tumors.
- The Department of Pediatric Endocrinology and Metabolism is a special field among the pediatric science fields. Since it requires accurate diagnosis and treatment, it is essential to see a specialist specializing in endocrinology. In our Children's hospital, specialists in Pediatric Endocrinology and Metabolism, as well as the experts, are in charge of treatment, diabetes specialist nurses, growth specialist nurses, precocious nurses, nutritionists, and social workers provide advanced treatment. Besides, by operating a grievance clinic (a pediatric endocrine website), we strive to resolve patients' and guardians' grievances and inquiries in real-time.
- Besides, in cooperation with university hospitals in Daegu and Gyeongbuk province, we operate a diabetic patient camp and various educational programs every year. We are continuously implementing guidelines and education for our patients.
