The Young Adult Diabetes Clinic at Baylor College of Medicine is one of the few clinics in the country providing a supportive structured program to meet not only the medical needs but also the various developmental and social needs of those with diabetes as they transition to adulthood.
Adults with diabetes have the ability to lead long and productive lives. This includes school or work, participation in sports and raising a family. With appropriate treatment, we can reduce the complications associated with diabetes and achieve good pregnancy outcomes for both mother and child.
Our goal is to foster diabetes management to the point of allowing a fully independent lifestyle. Our team works to individualize a treatment plan that fits the patient’s lifestyle.
