Support Diabetes Care And Research
Diabetes mellitus—often referred to simply as diabetes—is one of the most common chronic diseases affecting children. UNC Children’s offers comprehensive diabetes care from a team that specializes in the unique needs of growing babies, toddlers, children, and teens. Every year, we help nearly 2,000 kids and families adjust to living with diabetes, so they can continue leading full, healthy, active lives.
You can trust your child is getting top-quality diabetes care. We are credentialed by the American Diabetes Association, and U.S. News & World Report consistently recognizes our diabetes and endocrinology specialties as being among the nation’s best on its annual “America’s Best Children’s Hospitals” list.
