The University of Chicago Medicine Kovler Diabetes Center offers a patient-centered, science-based approach for managing insulin-dependent Type 1 diabetes, complex Type 2 diabetes and monogenic diabetes. Our multidisciplinary team works with patients and referring physicians to address all the challenges of diabetes, from hypertension and vascular problems, to foot conditions and kidney disease. We offer second opinions and ongoing treatment for people living with diabetes.
Because diabetes is a disease requiring care throughout a patient’s life span, a key attribute of care at Kovler is our “life span model” of care. In the same clinical space, our specialists are able to provide care to patients at every life stage.
Our approach has a particularly positive impact on young adult patients who otherwise may find themselves aging out of pediatric care at a complex time of life and not receiving appropriate support and care in managing their diabetes.
Being equipped to treat patients of all ages and stages with any type of diabetes means that we can provide care for multiple family members as needed, and extend our Family Health and Wellness Program to the whole family to help address the challenges of having a family member with diabetes.
We apply strong expertise in genetics and diabetes to examine each patient’s family history and identify candidates for genetic testing, as needed, to ensure that patients receive the most appropriate and effective treatment plans for their diabetes.
Kovler encompasses research, patient care, professional training, and patient education. Our team of specialists and educators addresses the full range of patient needs, from the physical to the social and emotional.
The Kovler Diabetes Center’s approach to patient care begins with the understanding that diabetes has a different impact on every patient. Each diabetes patient is different. This shapes our approach to patient care at Kovler. Accurate and complete diagnosis, including genetic testing, is the foundation for our highly individualized treatment plans.
The Kovler Diabetes Center is a leader in diabetes research, our researchers make breakthrough discoveries that help physicians and scientists around the world better understand diabetes, its causes and its genetic foundation.
Evidence is the foundation of our treatment plans. We focus on applied research to enhance patient care.
