The combination of integrated, excellent patient care and the opportunity for access to the latest innovations in diabetes management and research distinguishes the pediatric diabetes program at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
St. Louis Children’s Hospital has been a leader in the successful completion of many large, national and international diabetes studies. These investigations have involved clinical research to optimize diabetes management and prevent the long-term complications of the disease.
Today, several studies related to both Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes prevention and treatment are in progress. Many patients in the diabetes program are frequently given the opportunity to participate in these types of studies.
