For&nbsp;teenage diabetic populations, maintaining good glycemic control is often a low priority. Clinicians and families need to be aware of special considerations&nbsp;in this age group&nbsp;to ensure better control and reduce risk for postpubertal complication.&nbsp;How do physicians optimize management protocols for patients&nbsp;entering a stage of&nbsp;rapid hormonal&nbsp;flux? Can school support&nbsp;systems and peer groups play integral roles? Answering these questions with host&nbsp;Dr. Mary Leuchars&nbsp;is Dr. H. Peter Chase, professor of pediatrics at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center and past executive and clinical director of the Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes in Denver, Colorado.
