The Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM) Pediatric Diabetes Program provides comprehensive diagnosis, treatment and support for children with type 1 and type 2 diabetes and their families.
Because most children with newly diagnosed diabetes initially require hospitalization, our team will often first meet families and perform the majority of initial education for diabetes management in the hospital setting. For new visits to our outpatient offices, we schedule appointments whenever possible so that families can meet with our entire team of physicians, nurse practitioners and nutritionists.
We work with families to evaluate all information from glucose meters, insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitoring systems, both during and between visits, adjusting insulin regimen on a frequent, consistent basis. Depending on a child and family’s particular needs, we generally tailor office visits to focus on nutrition, medical therapy or psychosocial stressors.
