Endocrine and metabolic disorders encompass a heterogeneous set of medical conditions that vary widely in terms of their genetic, physiological, behavioral, and cognitive expressions. The demands and stressors placed on a child and his or her family by a given endocrine disease and its treatment also vary widely. In this chapter, we provide an overview of the primary endocrine and metabolic disorders most likely to be referred for mental health consultation in the pediatric context. These include type 1 and type 2 diabetes, as well as thyroid, adrenal, and gonadal disorders. We describe characteristic features, comorbidity, and possible presenting complaints associated with these disorders and discuss any empirically supported treatments for such disorders.
