Our Team

Your Diabetes care is mainly up to you, but having a health care team to assist you during the transplant process is important. At Stanford Health Care, the Transplant Diabetes Team is integrated with your Transplant Service. Transplant physicians, diabetes educators, endocrinologists, nurse transplant coordinators, registered dieticians and pharmacists work together to coordinate comprehensive quality care that is accessible to the patient.

The focus of our group is to assist you and your home health team in finding a way to gain optimal blood glucose levels. Diabetes education provides people with diabetes or those at risk for diabetes with the knowledge and skills needed to modify behavior, and successfully self-manage diabetes and its related conditions. The goal of our team is to empower individuals to achieve optimal health status, and reduce the risk of the associated complications of poor blood glucose management.

Diabetes education team

We address diabetes through a multidisciplinary approach. Transplant physicians, diabetes educators, endocrinologists, nurse transplant coordinators, registered dietitians, and pharmacists work together to coordinate comprehensive quality care that is accessible to the patient. We believe that the person with diabetes and their family are the most important members of the diabetes team. Diabetes affects each person differently and we help create individualized treatment programs that accommodate a patient's needs and optimize their health.

For Patients

Walk-in appointments are available on Thursdays from 9 a.m. - 11:30am

PREPARE FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT

During the transplant process, your blood glucose control and nutritional needs may change.

In anticipation of these changes, we have made available a Blood Sugar Log and Food Diary Log that you or your family can download, complete and bring to your appointment so we can monitor your progress while at home.

The information you provide will help us better accommodate your needs. Please feel free to write down any questions and or concerns you may have before your appointment.
