Sarit Polsky, MD, MPH
Primary Appointment: Assistant Professor of Medicine and Pediatrics

My Internal Medicine residency training was focused on the Women’s Health track. I have since maintained a clinical and research interest in women’s health. My early research examined the risk to develop Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM). Subsequent research inspected a risk factor for the development of diabetes mellitus, obesity, that included studies focusing on bariatric surgery, which is most often sought by women. I joined the staff at the Barbara Davis Center for Diabetes in 2014. Currently, I direct the pregnancy clinic at the Barbara Davis Center, Adult Clinic. I am interested in how diabetes affects women during the reproductive years, menopause, and post-menopausal stages. The unique challenges that women face affect their overall diabetes control and risks to develop diabetes-related complications. I'm also involved in the PERL Study (Preventing Early Renal Loss in Diabetes), an international, multi-site randomized controlled trial investigating a new way to help prevent or decrease the progression of kidney problems in individuals with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM). I ultimately aim to obtain independent funding to examine strategies that can improve glycemic control and prevent long-term complications in women with T1DM.
