Pediatric Clinics

Pediatric Diabetes

The UF division of Pediatric Endocrinology seeks to provide the best possible care for children and families living with diabetes, promote and perform cutting edge research aimed at making meaningful discoveries towards the prevention, reversal, and care of diabetes, prepare the next generation of pediatricians and pediatric endocrinologists to manage diabetes, and serve as advocates for all children and families affected by diabetes.

Our division is ranked number #14 in the nation by U.S. News and World Reports due to our expertise in providing both top notch clinical care and access to cutting edge research; but we need your ongoing support in order to continually improve the care we provide and the research we perform.
But diabetes isn’t where the expertise ends. The division boasts the world’s largest center for glycogen storage disease, the nation’s largest program for Prader-Willi syndrome and clinics for a range of metabolic and endocrine disorders, such as obesity. The work doesn’t stop in the clinic, either. Faculty members have helped establish camps for children with diabetes and are advocates for better nutrition in schools.

The University of Florida's Department of Pediatric Endocrinology provides a variety of clinics for children, teens and young adults with type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, lipid disorders (high cholesterol or triglycerides) and obesity. Please note that these clinics require a referral from the patient's primary care provider.
