  • Gastroesophageal Reflux in Children

  • Gastrointestinal Problems

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) in Children and Teens

    Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is a mental health problem. A child with GAD has a lot of worry and fear that seems to have no real cause.

  • GERD (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) in Children

  • Germ Cell Tumors in Children

    Germ cells form as a baby grows in the womb. The cells usually form the eggs (ova) in females and the sperm in males. Germ cell tumors are made up of these underdeveloped cells. The tumors may be cancer (malignant) or not cancer (benign).

  • Gestational Age Assessment

    It’s not always easy to tell a newborn’s age by their size. Premature babies are usually small, but full-term and past-term babies can be small, too. That’s when healthcare providers will do a gestational assessment to determine if a newborn needs special treatment.

  • Gestational Diabetes

    Gestational diabetes is a type of diabetes that happens during pregnancy. The symptoms of gestational diabetes usually go away after delivery. But sometimes they do not, or you may develop type 2 diabetes later.

  • Gestational Hypertension

    Gestational hypertension is high blood pressure in pregnancy. It occurs in about 3 in 50 pregnancies.
