Our approach to metabolic care

Metabolic syndrome is a group of health conditions. If not treated, metabolic syndrome can increase your child’s chances of serious health problems. Before visiting our clinic, our team will ask that your child have laboratory work completed. The results of these tests give us a better understanding of your child’s specific condition. Once we know more about your child’s health, we’ll work with you to develop the best treatment plan.
