Pediatric to Adult Transition Program
During childhood and young adulthood, we expect that you and your child will work together to manage the diabetes care process. It is important to not put too much responsibility on your child at too early of an age. When your child is in their freshmen year of high school, the we will introduce them to our transition program. This program gradually reviews information to help build independent living skills and prepare your child for managing their diabetes once they live on their own. We will create a plan with your endocrinologist, diabetes clinic team and family to determine when is the most appropriate time to transition to an adult endocrinologist.
