Biography - Sonia Caprio, MD

Sonia Caprio, MD, is a pediatric endocrinologist and an expert in childhood type 2 diabetes and obesity. She also treats fatty liver disease, genetic disorders that cause high cholesterol and metabolic syndrome, abnormalities associated with heart disease and type 2 diabetes. She tells new patients and their parents: “Both pre-diabetes and early onset of type 2 diabetes can be prevented. Often only minor changes in dietary intake and minimal weight loss together with more physical activity will help chase diabetes away.”

In treating childhood obesity and diabetes, Yale Medicine physicians focus on the family as well as the child, Dr. Caprio says. Therapies include a unique weight management plan for the entire family, she says. The practice also uses cutting-edge genetic testing to better understand a patient’s metabolism.

A professor of pediatrics (endocrinology) at Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Caprio is a leading researcher of childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes. Her work seeks to better understand the causes of insulin resistance and impaired insulin secretion in obese children. She received the 2015 Distinguished Leader in Insulin Resistance Award from the International Committee for Insulin Resistance.
