About Us

The Institute for Children with Diabetes (ICD), private nonprofit entity, operating since January 2004, provides interdisciplinary assistance to more than 3 thousand children and teens with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.

What We Do

Children and teens are assisted, free of charge, in an infrastructure with Day Hospital, Ambulatory Care, Daily Education Program on Diabetes, Nutrition Workshops, Physicians’ and Dentists’ Offices and an Ophthalmologic Center.

What is Diabetes?

There is several types of diabetes. Type 1 (DM1) is an autoimmune disease characterized by the destruction of insulin-producing beta cells. That happens by mistake because the organism identifies them as foreign bodies. Its action is an autoimmune response.
