How We Can Help
Diabetes & Endocrinology Treatment Information
The pediatric diabetes and endocrinology specialists at IU Health provide care based on current guidelines and the preferences of you and your child. Examples of our services include:
- Education. In both inpatient and outpatient settings, we teach children and families diabetes management skills such as blood sugar testing, insulin injection, hypoglycemia recognition and treatment, meal planning, carbohydrate counting and sick-day management.
- Insulin therapy. All children with type 1 diabetes—and some with type 2 diabetes—need this treatment, which generally involves injections (sometimes aided by a pump).
- Medication. Beyond insulin our specialists use several types of medication, including hormone therapies, to treat children with endocrine disorders.
