Such diseases cause patients to have problems with physical growth and sexual development, suffer from endocrine diseases such as hypoglycemia and diabetes and experience endocrine gland disorders. Many children affected by these types of conditions also experience adrenal, thyroid and pituitary gland disorders. Pediatric endocrinology nurses work closely with pediatricians to help treat patients suffering from endocrine system diseases by providing regular health care, monitoring their patients bodily systems, performing medical exams, taking blood samples and administering medication when needed. A major part of a pediatric endocrinology nurses job is to educate their patients and their families about how to prevent these diseases and how to manage endocrine system diseases such as juvenile diabetes.
