The Endocrine FA program at Cincinnati Children’s is one of the specialty services available to patients being treated at the Fanconi Anemia Comprehensive Care Center. Fanconi anemia and its treatments (androgens, bone marrow transplant and steroid therapy) can affect how the endocrine glands work.
The endocrinologist will watch for symptoms of endocrine problems such as diabetes, slow growth, low thyroid function, early or late puberty, weight gain or low bone mineral. Identifying and treating these problems early will limit their long-term effect on your child’s health.
After examining your child and performing diagnostic tests, our team will suggest a plan of care tailored to your child’s needs. Clinic appointments take place at the Endocrine Clinic E-2 on Friday mornings as a part of your child’s Fanconi Anemia Comprehensive Care Center appointment.
