Your pediatrician probably knows you and your child well. He or she may be the first one to raise concerns about your child’s symptoms. When symptoms are identified, your pediatrician will help refer you to a local specialist – a pediatric endocrinologist.
After ruling out possible underlying causes, your pediatric endocrinologist will be the one to diagnose your child’s CPP. This doctor will also provide check ups, usually every 6 months, to closely monitor your little one’s growth.
Pediatric Endocrinology Nurse
Your pediatric endocrinology nurse will administer medication. If you’ve chosen the treatment developed by Tolmar, you can expect a six month, subcutaneous treatment plan where you will visit your nurse twice yearly for a simple injection — no need for intramuscular shots or surgery.
An office administrator will help you navigate the insurance process for your chosen treatment plan. He or she will help you with benefit verification and scheduling your appointments.
That’s you! As always, you’ll be the one to guide your little one, provide emotional support, and preserve childhood in partnership with your care team. Parenting or caregiving can take a village, so be sure to bring others into your care team whenever needed.
You’ve got this.
