What's new?This is the first report of paediatric to adult healthcare transfer trends in young adults with youth‐onset Type 2 diabetes.This work studies a population‐based group of young adults with Type 2 diabetes across a wide geographic and demographic range, who are difficult to capture in research.Findings reveal substantial worsening of glycaemic control and loss to follow‐up during healthcare transfer, highlighting a previously unidentified issue for this vulnerable population.This research has implications for clinicians and healthcare systems, to focus on tailored approaches and policies for young adults with Type 2 diabetes in transition.IntroductionType 2 diabetes in youth has increased steadily on a global scale in the past decade, demanding attention to address this evolving public health emergency . In the USA, from 2001 to 2009, the SEARCH for Diabetes in Youth Study (SEARCH) estimated a 30.5% overall increase in the prevalence of Type 2 diabetes in US youth . Compared with adult‐onset Type 2 diabetes, youth tend to have more severe disease requiring earlier initiation of insulin, and experience more micro‐ and macrovascular complications as well as higher mortality . Thus, this growing population has the potential to place significant burden on health systems. The American Diabetes Association (ADA)
