Type 1 Diabetes

Patients living with type 1 diabetes benefit from a team working to support their journey. The Polyclinic has one of the largest endocrinology teams in Seattle. We work closely with patients living with type 1 diabetes to help them manage their condition. We support our patients throughout their journey with education, support and resources. We coordinate care between primary care and other specialists, support groups and self-management resources.


We offer our patients with type 1 diabetes many visit types to meet their needs. Whether you have been living with type 1 since adolescence or were diagnosed later in life, our certified diabetes educators will work closely with you and your physician to help manage your care.
