Description of Services

For over 90 years, the endocrinologists at Washington University School of Medicine and St. Louis Children’s Hospital have played a major role in the care of children with diabetes and all types of hormone-related disorders. The program is a leader in both clinical care and research in many of the issues surrounding childhood diabetes mellitus and provides consultative services and long-term management of infants, children, adolescents and young adults with all types of diabetes, including:

  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Cystic fibrosis-related diabetes
  • Monogenic Diabetes including Wolfram Syndrome

Our team of experts includes physicians, dietitians, certified diabetes nurse educators, nurse practitioners, social workers and mental health professionals who staff the program. We were awarded recognition by the American Diabetes Association for meeting the national standards for excellence in diabetes education.

The Diabetes Service operates in close collaboration with the primary care physician in the community and offers a full range of services related to the diabetes care. Currently, the clinic follows approximately 1,200 patients with diabetes.

The division provides 24-hour on-call coverage to all of our patients, including those with diabetes.
