Chapter 17: Diabetes in Adolescence

Chapter 17: Diabetes in Adolescence

Fergus J Cameron, Katherine Garvey, Korey Hood, Carlo L. Acerini C and Ethel Codner

The essential nature of adolescence and progress to adulthood have remain unchanged for many decades. Whilst the distractions have changed, the themes remain constant. Thus in these updated guidelines many of the issues canvassed remain unchanged since the last ISPAD guidelines- physiologic changes of puberty, risk-taking behaviours, challenges in adherence etc. These new guidelines though, have an expanded section upon sexual health and contraception, include new data about models of transition to adult care and how adolescents use new diabetes-related technologies in their diabetes care. As has previously been the case, the idiosyncratic challenges of this phase of life are emphasized.
