Donate to Pediatric Endocrinology Research, Patient Care and Education
The body’s endocrine system comprises the pancreas, thyroid, pineal gland, hypothalamus, adrenal glands, pituitary glands, ovaries and testes. When any part of the endocrine system does not function properly, hormones that regulate the body’s functions become imbalanced, and a number of disorders may occur. Among these disorders are insulin resistance, hypertension, cholesterol abnormalities and type 2 diabetes. All of these conditions are particularly devastating in children.
