Specialized Endocrinology Care

Nationally, an estimated 23 million people have diabetes. In Greater
Cincinnati, nearly 170,000 people are living with the disease, and it is estimated that by the year 2020, one in four individuals will have diabetes. The above average rate of diabetes in our region is driven in great part by high rates of obesity "” nearly one in three Cincinnatians is obese. Overweight individuals are at risk for developing metabolic disorders like diabetes.

With 16 endocrinologists on staff, the UC Diabetes & Endocrinology Institute has the largest and most experienced team in the region. Moreover, most of the endocrinologists practicing in Greater Cincinnati received their specialty training at the UC College Of Medicine.

The UC Diabetes & Endocrinology Institute has also initiated a

collaborative, multi-disciplinary program with Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. The program has brought together almost 100 physicians and scientists focused on researching obesity and diabetes.
