What to Expect
Our specialized team will provide an evaluation and examination of your child to determine if they have type 1 or type 2 diabetes mellitus. After diagnosis, your child will receive an individualized treatment program that teaches the basics of diabetes care. We work closely with you to develop a management program for your child and their diabetic condition. We incorporate food and exercise plans, blood glucose monitoring and if necessary, insulin or oral medication. Our comprehensive program also incorporates follow-up outpatient education sessions, a parent-support group, regular phone contact and other educational materials into our treatment plans.
We want to help you and your child develop the best skills to make diabetes more manageable. Therefore, we also arrange teen retreats, holiday events, support groups, exhibitor fairs, research and lecture programs.
