Meanwhile, young, impoverished Americans with T1D are doing worse. That’s because children receiving T1D care in the United States face a technology divide between the haves and the have-nots, says Ananta Addala, assistant professor of pediatrics at Stanford Medicine Children’s Health. “We’re not improving outcomes for our poorest youth.”
