We provide comprehensive treatment, education and long-term management for infants, teens and young adults with diabetes.
The diabetes program at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital is committed to teaching our patients and their families how to effectively manage diabetes using the latest information, treatments, education and technology available. We know that a diabetes diagnosis can come with many uncertainties and lifestyle changes. That’s why our physicians work closely with patients/families, nurses, diabetes educators, dietitians and social workers to create an individualized treatment plan for each patient.
Our team provides comprehensive care and education to patients with the following types of diabetes:
- Type 1 diabetes
- Type 2 diabetes
- Atypical diabetes
- Cystic fibrosis related diabetes
- Diabetes insipidus
- Steroid-related diabetes
- Transplant-related diabetes
