More than two decades ago, doctors at the University of Chicago Medicine decided to focus their efforts on treating diabetes in children and teens. For over 20 years, our experts have helped young people with all types of diabetes, including rare forms of the disease. Our experts provide comprehensive, individualized care for infants, children and teens with:
- Type 1 diabetes
- Type 2 diabetes
- Monogenic diabetes, including neonatal diabetes and maturity onset diabetes of the young (MODY)
Our multidisciplinary team provides holistic care to address the physical and social challenges that children and teens with diabetes may face. Physicians, nurses, staff and educators offer comprehensive medical support as well as programs designed to help patients live happy lives and effectively transition between infancy, childhood, young adulthood and adulthood. We also work with patients' siblings and families. » Learn more about our approach to care.
In addition to world-class inpatient diabetes care at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital, children and teens with diabetes can receive outpatient care at the Kovler Diabetes Center diabetes clinic in the Duchossois Center for Advanced Medicine (DCAM).
