Pediatric Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism Patient Support and Education

Support groups

It is often helpful to talk to parents who are dealing with the same issues, particularly in the case of rare disorders.

For some diseases (such as diabetes) we have lists of parents who are willing to speak to other about their child's illness.

If you think this would be helpful, please mention it at your visit and we will try to put you in contact with parents who have experience with that illness.
