Word! Pediatric Endocrinologist

Pediatric Endocrinologist

Say: pee-dee-AT-rik en-duh-krih-NOL-eh-jist

This is the name for the type of doctor who deals with hormones, those special chemical substances your body produces. Hormones make things happen all over the body, especially during puberty. Pediatric endocrinologists help kids with diabetes, growth problems, and more.
