Diabetes Care

We utilize the newest proven therapies, technologies and therapeutic lifestyle changes to manage diabetes.

You may have access to clinical trials evaluating leading-edge tools in diabetes management.

Types of Diabetes

There are three main types of diabetes:

  1. Type 1 diabetes
  2. Type 2 diabetes
  3. Gestational diabetes

Our diabetes experts treat all forms of diabetes, including maturity onset diabetes of the young, latent autoimmune diabetes of adults, and drug and surgically induced diabetes in adults.

We also offer a program to help patients transition from pediatric to adult care.

No matter which type of diabetes you have or when you were diagnosed, at UC San Diego Health we work with you to help you live well with diabetes and to manage its complications.
