Intensive Care for Adults with Type 1 Diabetes
These days, it seems that healthcare systems and the general public focus plenty of attention on the type-2 diabetes epidemic and all the little kids with diabetes. What about the multitudes of adults who have type-1? Well, you’ve found the place that is dedicated to you.
Integrated Diabetes Services is owned and operated by adults with type 1 diabetes, so we “get it” when it comes to diabetes care. Unlike most hospital-based programs, our diabetes management services don’t stop at providing basic education. We teach you the “tricks of the trade” that make living with diabetes and managing blood sugars easier than ever. We also have the experience and expertise to help you fine-tune your insulin doses, whether you’re an experienced pump user or simply taking injections. We take pride in being technologically-savvy (almost as much as teenagers!), so we can offer insight on the latest products and devices, and make use of communication tools that allow consultations to be held from your home, office, or wherever you choose.
Type 1 Diabetes Services
Our team of diabetes educators has passion for helping other adults with diabetes. We know that diabetes doesn’t take breaks or vacations, so we make ourselves available to you above-and-beyond the usual call of duty. Need help preparing for a surgical procedure? We’ll guide you. Having lows during a new type of workout? We’ll offer specific adjustments. Not sure which pump to choose? We’ll direct you to the most helpful information. In virtually all cases, we respond to your questions and concerns within hours, not days or weeks.
