Cystic Fibrosis-related Diabetes Program

The Cystic Fibrosis-related Diabetes (CFRD) Program provides specialized care to patients and families with CFRD. We work with the pulmonary team in the Cystic Fibrosis Center to provide the best diabetes treatments and support services for both you and your child. Our multidisciplinary team of specialists — including endocrinologists, nurse practitioners, diabetes educators and nutritionists — will provide you with the information and skills you need to care for your child at home.


The CFRD Program is currently conducting several studies, including:

  • A study related to the screening of children with CFRD
  • Research designed to improve our understanding of how and why diabetes develops in children with cystic fibrosis
  • A study looking at how high blood sugars and insulin deficiency may affect pulmonary (lung) function, nutritional status, and muscle mass and strength in children with cystic fibrosis
