Review of Your Child’s Medical History
Usually, pediatric specialists start by reviewing a child’s medical history before the examination. This is to ensure that all current medications get recorded since some of them may interact with diagnostic tests or procedures carried out during this visit. Your pediatrician will also need to know whether there have been any recent changes in your child’s health status.
During the visit, also expect a series of questions about their endocrine and metabolic symptoms. These include how often they’re eating, drinking, or using the bathroom. You may also need to provide information to the pediatric endocrinologist regarding your child’s development in terms of motor skills, language comprehension, and behavior patterns.
