Helping Children Manage Their Conditions So They Can Enjoy Being Kids

Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health is ranked by U.S.News & World Report as one of the best children’s hospitals in endocrinology and treating diabetes. We treat thousands of infants, children and adolescents each year for diabetes and other endocrine disorders. With both inpatient and outpatient options, we can help you and your child learn how to cope with and manage diabetes and other endocrine disorders.

The body’s endocrine system consists of glands that secrete hormones. These hormones regulate our metabolism, growth and development. If your child is experiencing problems with puberty or growth, then he or she may have an endocrine disorder.


Our pediatric diabetes and endocrinology healthcare specialists treat conditions that include:

  • Diabetes
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Congenital hypothyroidism
  • Precocious puberty
  • Delayed puberty
  • Short stature
  • Turner syndrome

Most patients are referred to us by their primary care physicians. If you suspect your child has diabetes or an endocrine disorder, please see your primary care provider first.
