Penn endocrinologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, gestational diabetes (diabetes during pregnancy) and other related conditions.
People with diabetes receive their care at the Penn Rodebaugh Diabetes Center and at Penn Endocrinology Associates at Pennsylvania Hospital. Penn endocrinologists work closely with patients’ primary care providers to treat and manage diabetes and related conditions.
Diabetes is a chronic disease affecting more than six percent of the U.S. population, or 21 million Americans. Another 53 million people have pre-diabetes, which puts them at risk for developing the disease.
Diabetes is linked to heart and kidney disease, stroke and other serious health problems. Patients at Penn have access to a multidisciplinary team of experts from cardiology, women’s health, podiatry, bariatric surgery, neurology and nephrology, cancer and urology.
