Pediatric endocrinology deals largely with the very common diseases of childhood and adolescence such as diabetes, rickets and obesity along with more rare and nuanced diseases such as congenital adrenal hyperplasia and disorders of sexual differentiation. Technology rapidly advances the treatment of diabetes and guidelines are constantly changing for the treatment of many common endocrine conditions. In this succinct review, we present the most updated recommendations and guidelines provided by the nationally and internationally recognized regulatory bodies such as The Endocrine Society, The Pediatric Endocrine Society and the USA Food and Drug Administration. Through this mini review, we hope to provide important updates and knowledge to the providers taking care of neonates, young children and adolescents worldwide.
