Children’s Diabetes and Endocrinology program
Type 1 Diabetes affects 1 in every 400 children and teens under age 20. More than 15,000 children in the United States are diagnosed with this disease each year – and this number continues to grow. Sadly, there is nothing to prevent Type 1 Diabetes or cure it. Without careful management, kids face disabling and life-threatening complications. Even early death.
At the McNeely Pediatric Diabetes Center and Endocrinology Clinic at Children’s Minnesota, we care for more patients with Type I diabetes than any other medical center in the state. And our team of experts is working to develop a game-changing program to create a 24/7 care model for this 24/7 disease, using technology to track patient data and deliver it in real time to our physicians and nurses. This care model will lead to improved quality of life and access to care, personalized and precise interventions, reduced overall costs, and healthy habits.
