At NYU Langone’s Center for Diabetes and Metabolic Health, our team is dedicated to helping people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes manage their condition and avoid complications that can affect their health.
Our collaborative approach to diabetes care is what sets us apart. Your care team is led by an endocrinologist who works closely with diabetes educators, nutritionists, nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants to develop a treatment plan focused on getting your diabetes under control. Our team then provides the education and support you need to achieve that goal.
U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals” ranks NYU Langone one of the top hospitals in the country for diabetes and endocrinology.
Our goal is twofold: to prevent diabetes complications from occurring, and expertly treat those complications if they occur. Since high blood pressure and uncontrolled cholesterol dramatically increase the risk of advanced diabetes complications, we focus on controlling these factors along with lowering blood glucose levels. Effective treatment prevents complications and reduces your risk of heart attack, stroke, kidney and heart failure, vision loss, and amputation.
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. Experts in our Diabetes Research Program focus on the link between diabetes and complications triggered by high blood glucose, obesity, and cholesterol disorders.
