Diabetes

A child with juvenile diabetes and his brother

Adjusting to life with diabetes is manageable, and children with juvenile diabetes (Type 1) or Type 2 diabetes can do everything other kids without diabetes can. Our comprehensive program for children with diabetes includes the total care experience. From diagnosis to providing education and support, we will help your child get into the habit of managing their disease each day without missing a beat at being a kid.

 
Learn More About Juvenile Diabetes and Type 2 Diabetes

When your child has a condition like Type 1 diabetes (previously called juvenile diabetes) or Type 2, it can affect your entire family’s routines, schedules, and even meal planning.

Our Nemours board-certified pediatric endocrinologists are specially trained in helping families learn to successfully manage both juvenile diabetes and Type 2 diabetes. Our teams of experts — including certified diabetes educators, advanced registered nurse practitioners, registered dietitians, licensed clinical social workers, and others — will provide the tools, a personalized treatment plan for your child, and ongoing education and support you need to help ensure your child maintains a healthy lifestyle.
