Pediatric Diabetes

The USF Health Diabetes health care team is committed to managing, delaying and preventing diabetes in children. USF Health offers comprehensive and multidisciplinary care for pediatric patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Patients are closely monitored and assisted with managing diabetes and associated health concerns as well as connected to resources to improve their quality of life. Central to our approach, is the education of patients and their families to empower them to be active participants in their diabetes management. Our team also treats adult patients with type 1 diabetes, gestational diabetes, or those with type 2 diabetes who require more intensive therapy.

Pediatric Endocrinology

Pediatric endocrinology services are provided by our health care team largely at our satellite partner locations; Children’s Medical Services Clinic and Shriners Hospital for Children-Tampa, (both located on the USF campus). Our USF Health physicians care for children and adolescents with disorders of growth, thyroid, puberty, pituitary, adrenal, calcium metabolism, bone, ovaries and testes. USF serves as the regional Newborn Screening Center for congenital hypothyroidism and congenital adrenal hyperplasia. Our physicians also treat a growing number of transgender children and youth. At Shriners Hospital we provide comprehensive care for children with osteogenesis imperfecta and other pediatric bone disease.
