The website is PedsEndoMD.com. That is the Twitter handle as well. I would like to tie the color scheme to what is at our office website - rockymountaindiabetes.com.
Here is the current description of the site:
I’m a pediatric endocrinologist. That is a mouthful so I typically tell people that I’m a hormone doctor for children. Most people then immediately think of the unenviable task of trying to treat teenagers through the raging hormones of adolescence. Trust me, I wouldn’t wish that on anyone! The reality of it is that the endocrine system involves a variety of different organs in the body and controls a lot of fun things like growth, puberty, and blood sugar. When these organs in the body don’t act right, then that’s where I come in (cue superhero music).
The treatment of hormone problems may not be as sexy as repairing a broken leg with a titanium rod and power tools or fixing a hole in your heart with a balloon released from a device that is a third of the width of a pencil, but it is fun and quite satisfying when things work out well. Most treatments involve pills, injections, lifestyle changes, sometimes surgery and even radioactivity at times. For the most part, endocrine disorders are treatable but most are a lifelong commitment to medical therapy.
The purpose of this blog is to disseminate truthful, up-to-date information about pediatric endocrinology topics. While many of the topics will be about diabetes (since that is one of the most common endocrine problems in children), I will also strive to provide content that is related to other conditions that are treated by peds endos. These will include: early puberty, growth problems, thyroid disorders, adrenal gland problems, weight issues, and a host of other conditions. This blog won’t be the be-all-end-all of peds endo information. However, I hope to provide patient-centered info that will benefit the millions of children with endocrine problems and their parents and caregivers. I may touch on some controversial topics that really don’t have a “right” answer or other topics that have multiple treatment options that you will need to talk with your personal doctor about. In the end, I hope you will be able to find reliable, evidence-based information that you can use to better your life and the lives of those around you.
