Diabetes and Endocrinology
In honor of celebrating 100 years of insulin this holiday season, the Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist Team shared their favorite recipes for your enjoyment.
The Texas Children's Diabetes and Endocrine Care Center is a leader in the research and treatment of children with diabetes and endocrine disorders. The center provides diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of endocrine dysfunctions, including:
- Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia
- Cushing Syndrome
- Gender Dysphoria
- Growth hormone deficiency
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
- Precocious puberty
- Type 1 Diabetes
- Type 2 Diabetes
We also treat and educate both established and newly diagnosed diabetes patients and their families in self-management of all aspects of types 1 and 2 diabetes. For established diabetic patients and/or referred inpatients with diabetes, the Diabetes and Endocrine Care Center provides refresher education, as well as support groups. The clinic team consists of a nurse educator, dietitian, physician and social worker. Patients are seen through referral only. Children and young adults with thyroid tumors are seen by specialists in the Thyroid Tumor Program.
