Dr. Șofariu Simona Paraschiva

- pediatric endocrinology specialist
Pediatric endocrinology is the medical specialty that links endocrinology to pediatrics.
Endocrinology is the science that studies the endocrine glands and the effects of hormones. Hormones are chemicals that determine how other parts of the body work. For example, hormones decide how a child grows and matures.
The problems that pediatric endocrinology treats are:
1. Growth disorders: All children need to be measured at different stages of life - tall children, very tall children compared to parents, stationary or slow-growing children require endocrinological assessment and monitoring,
2. Thyroid pathology. Sibiu is in the iodine deficiency area. Under these conditions, thyroid pathology is more common than in other areas (hypo or thyroid hyperfunction, autoimmune thyroiditis, endemic goiter). In Romania, all children are screened for congenital hypothyroidism at birth, this disease being the main treatable cause of mental retardation in children. Hypothyroidism can occur at any time in the development of children, sometimes the first sign noticed by the parent is the slowing down of the growth in height.
3. Endocrine obesity - monitoring children's weight is important in their further development as a healthy adult. Early changes in lifestyle lead to the harmonious growth and development of the child both physically and mentally.
4. Sexual differentiation disorders, early puberty, delayed puberty, sexual development disorders, ovarian / testicular dysfunction (amenorrhea, acne, hirsutism - abnormal hair, gynecomastia in boys, abnormalities in the development of external genitalia)
5. Abnormalities of the hypothalamic-pituitary axis, disturbances in water metabolism
6. Disorders in phospho-calcium metabolism, rickets, vitamin D deficiency. There is a screening program for vitamin D deficiency in the hospital.
7. Hypo or hyperfunction of the adrenal glands that may have various clinical manifestations (fatigue, skin hyperpigmentation or weight gain, purplish streaks on the skin, increased blood pressure)
