The Cystic Fibrosis Endocrine Clinic, under the direction of M. Max Feldt, DO, takes a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach to endocrine-related disorders associated with cystic fibrosis. This includes children with cystic fibrosis who may have abnormal blood sugar, growth failure, or delay in puberty.
Our monthly clinic offers children with cystic fibrosis and their families the opportunity and convenience to meet with the cystic fibrosis medical team, a pediatric endocrinologist, and a certified diabetes educator. This way, all your doctors and caregivers are working together to help you manage any identified issues, while also screening for associated endocrine concerns and giving you specific dietary and lifestyle recommendations if your child has cystic fibrosis-related diabetes.
An inpatient hospital service also provides endocrine-specific recommendation once weekly if a child with cystic fibrosis is hospitalized at Children's Mercy.
