Welcome to the

Center for Diabetes & Metabolic Health

We help patients manage their diabetes and prevent complications.

At NYU Langone’s Center for Diabetes and Metabolic Health, our team is dedicated to preventing diabetes-related complications. We do this by stopping prediabetes from progressing and helping people with diabetes better manage the condition.

Diabetes Care and Prevention

We help adults with type 1 and type 2 diabetes manage diabetes. Achieving this takes more than blood glucose control alone. High blood pressure and inadequately controlled cholesterol directly impact the risk of advanced diabetes complications. These include heart attack and stroke as well as heart failure, kidney failure, vision loss, and amputation.

For people with diabetes, we provide monitoring to help you avoid these dangerous complications before they begin. If you have already been diagnosed with high blood pressure or high cholesterol, or have underlying heart, kidney, and vascular disease, we provide the medical treatments necessary to slow or even stop the complications from getting worse.

We also help people at high risk for the disease reduce their risk. This includes people who are overweight and adults over age 65—half of whom have prediabetes. People from certain ethnic groups, including African Americans and Hispanics, and women who develop diabetes while pregnant and those with polycystic ovary syndrome are also at greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

Managing Diabetes

If you have been diagnosed with diabetes, we help you stay healthy through effective blood glucose monitoring, proper use of medications including insulin, and lifestyle modifications such as diet and exercise. New medications that help with weight loss can also improve diabetes control.

Advanced devices such as insulin pumps, sensors, and continuous glucose monitors can help you manage your diabetes, and our team can help you decide which tool is best for you.

A Team Devoted to Diabetes Care

Our endocrinologists work closely with preventive cardiologists, diabetes educators, nutritionists, and nurses. Whether you need to improve blood glucose control, require stress testing, or are dealing with advanced diabetes complications, our team can provide the care you need.

Leaders in Diabetes Research

As a patient at the Center for Diabetes and Metabolic Health, you have access to clinical trials of medications and technologies that often are not widely available to the general public. You are also being cared for by physicians who are leaders in the effort to improve diabetes care and treatment.

Experts in our Diabetes Research Program focus on the link between diabetes and complications triggered by high blood glucose and obesity. Inflammation, which causes white blood cells to attack essential organs such as the heart, is increased in both diabetes and prediabetes. The damage caused by inflammation to the blood vessels, kidneys, and eyes is an increasingly understood cause of complications and another important research focus for the Center for Diabetes and Metabolic Health.

Our diabetes treatment team focus on better understanding diabetes because we believe that preventing complications as well as working toward a cure are the best ways to improve the lives of our patients.
