SSA is extending the Listings for endocrine disorders, currently set to expire June 8, 2018, until June 26, 2020. 83 Fed. Reg. 23579. https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2018-05-22/pdf/2018-10867.pdf.
Sharp-eyed advocates will note that, except for Listing109.08 applicable to people under the age of 6 years, the endocrine listings do not really exist. SSA will “evaluate impairments that result from endocrine disorders under the listings for other body systems” (20 C.F.R. Subpt P App 1 Sections 9.00 B, 109.00 B). The Listing sections consist entirely, for adults, or almost entirely, for children, of the preamble that gives non-exclusive guidance for evaluating a disorder “under the listings for other body systems.”
