Managing Type 1 diabetes as an adolescent
Date:3/14/2014

AURORA, Colo. (March 14, 2014) The Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes (BDC) will receive a $2.1 million grant to help teach adolescents with Type 1 diabetes how to manage their disease and improve their health outcomes and quality of life. The study is called the Flexible Lifestyle 3mpowering Change (FL3X). For most people, being diagnosed with diabetes is a life changing and traumatic event. For a teenager it can be worse. This study will assist teens in managing their insulin, checking their blood sugar and keeping themselves healthy which can be an enormous task.

"Teaching youth to better manage all of the daily tasks of diabetes and helping them to engage actively in problem solving according to their needs, holds great promise and we have this opportunity with this study," said one of the awardees and principal investigator David Maahs, MD, PhD, an associate professor with the School of Medicine. "A pilot study recently completed with 61 teenagers had overwhelmingly positive outcomes with the teens expressing how happy they were to have someone who listened to their concerns living with diabetes. The pilot study was very effective in its capacity to address the realities of these young people's lives."

The study will position diabetes educators as health coaches who teach youth to identify issues that impede their diabetes care and help find solutions that work individually for teens in their daily lives. These educators also work with teen's family members to establish support systems that reduce conflict and build positive communication patterns. The real goals are for these educators to help adolescents better manage their diabetes by checking their blood sugar, giving the right amount of insulin, choosing a healthy diet and engaging in appropriate physical activity.

Other health care providers that are involved in the trainings are a professor of nutrition, a psychologist and health coaches who will deliver the
