Young adults with chronic endocrine diseases are a vulnerable patient population who undergo unique developmental and life changes, which require specific expertise and resources for care. Inherent differences exist in pediatric and adult-oriented care systems, which may affect the quality and level of care that young adults receive. Pediatric care approaches the young adult as a part of the larger family support system, while adult care approaches the young adult in isolation with links to other supports. Adult providers may not be trained to specifically care for young adults or have clinic resources to address pressing developmental issues. In contrast, pediatricians may not be specifically trained in diagnosing or managing comorbidities or complications of endocrine diseases that often present in adulthood. Overall, issues related to differences between pediatric and adult care can be improved by integrated efforts aimed at several key targets. This chapter reviews the optimal adult care approach to young adults with endocrine diseases and offers choice resources and practical strategies, which can change practices to accommodate this vulnerable population.
