Johns Hopkins Pediatric Diabetes Center

The Johns Hopkins Pediatric Diabetes Center offers comprehensive diabetes care in Baltimore, Bethesda and Annapolis, Maryland, with a team approach to address all the needs of our patients and their families.

We see patients age 18 and under who have all types of diabetes, including type 1, type 2, prediabetes, atypical diabetes, MODY, and cystic-fibrosis-related diabetes.

Our pediatric subspecialists include:

  • Your endocrinologist/diabetes care provider
  • Certified diabetes educators and nurses
  • Nutritionists
  • Behavioral health specialists
  • Social work support 
  • Child Life specialists

Appointment Options

We offer telemedicine appointments to established patients of the diabetes program, depending on each patient's condition and individual appointment needs. We recommend that some of your appointments be in-person every year, and patients may alternate in-person with virtual visits. You will collaborate with your diabetes team to determine what is best for your family.
