Although a thyroid test is conducted during newborn screenings in California, symptoms of endocrine disorders may not appear until closer to puberty. The endocrinology team at CHOC is regionally recognized for patient care and provides comprehensive diagnoses and treatments for endocrine disorders.
In this episode of CHOC Radio, Sandy Preasmyer, a nurse practitioner on CHOC’s Endocrinology team, discusses:
- Warning signs parents can look for that may reflect a possible thyroid issue
- The most common thyroid problems in kids, and how CHOC’s endocrinology specialists treat them
- How CHOC’s endocrinology specialty programs enhance quality of life for patients
