When your child has diabetes, it can affect your whole family’s routines, schedules and meal planning. At Nemours Children's, our diabetes care teams give you the tools, personalized care, education and support your family needs to manage your child’s condition. As Accredited Centers of Excellence by the American Diabetes Association, we’re here to help you and your family understand the condition and provide the guidance you need to manage your child’s diabetes as they grow.
At Nemours, we take a team approach to caring for diabetes in children. That means (depending on the location) your child may see board-certified doctors, nurse practitioners, dietitians, social workers, psychologists, diabetes educators and nurses who specialize in treating diabetes in kids. We work together to create a personalized treatment plan designed just for your child.
Our diabetes doctors, care teams and researchers are also working to reverse the rise in type 2 diabetes — and to prevent childhood obesity. We want to help families make healthy lifestyle and nutrition choices by giving families information in the communities we serve.
Nemours also participates in type 1 diabetes TrialNet, an international network of researchers exploring ways to prevent, delay and research the condition. We’re also involved in groundbreaking research and testing to improve the lives of some of the youngest children with diabetes.
