  • Cohort includes those with at least two pediatric endocrinology encounters and one adult endocrinology encounter at Duke. Participants who took longer than 36 months to transfer to adult care were excluded from the analysis. Full model included gender, race, ethnicity, payor type, presence of depression, anxiety, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, obesity, visit with mental health provider, number of hospital admissions per year, number of emergency department visits per year, visit with diabetes educator, visit with nutritionist, continuous glucose monitor use, insulin pump use, and pre-transfer hemoglobin A1c.

  • *Those who did have diagnosis or condition used as a reference group.
