Children with endocrinal disorders suffer greater stress from bullying

US researchers have found that children with endocrine disorders who are bullied are more likely to suffer from psychological distress and have symptoms of depression, anxiety, loneliness and behavioral problems. Bullying may also result in them being less diligent about their health - for example diabetics may forgo a healthy diet so they don't get noticed and picked on. It is therefore, the parents' duty to routinely try to discover if their child is suffering from bullying. Some conditions that may put children at risk of bullying are type 1 diabetes, underactive thyroid, short stature, gynecomastia, early puberty and delayed puberty.
