Conditions we treat

  • Fatty liver disease: Children who are overweight or obese and who consume higher than average levels of sugar and fat will have increasing stores of fat in their liver, which ultimately damages the liver. This is known as fatty liver disease or nonalcoholic steteohepatitis.
  • Obesity: It is important that we work with families to help children achieve a healthy weight through physical exercise and diet modifications.
  • Pre-Diabetes: Pre-diabetes can be defined as having a higher than normal blood sugar level, but not high enough to be considered type 2 diabetes yet.
  • Type 2 Diabetes: Type 2 diabetes is the most common type of diabetes in adults, accounting for 90 to 95 percent of all diabetes cases. The risk for type 2 diabetes increases with age.
  • Heart concerns: Children with high cholesterol and high triglycerides are at risk for hypertension, hyperlipidemia, obesity, and/or early heart disease.
