DILORENZI, Roberto et al. Current situation of the transition of patients with type 1 diabetes from the pediatric service to the adult. Rev. Urug. Med. Int. [online]. 2019, vol.4, n.2, pp.38-42. ISSN 2393-6797.

The transition of adolescents with diabetes from the Pediatric Diabetes Unit to the Adult Diabetes Unit was evaluated. The results show that there was no loss of patients. The adolescents evaluated the care in both services satisfactorily. Metabolic control improved significantly. Having institutional policies together with a transition project could amplify these favorable results in a population that is particularly sensitive to changes in health services.

Keywords : diabetes mellitus; adolescents.
