Support Group For Teens With Type 1 Diabetes

Support Group For Teens With Type 1 Diabetes

Tag Archives: Support group for teens with type 1 diabetes Quick summary: Research has shown that support groups for teens with type one diabetes are extremely beneficial to the participants overall well-being. In fact, people who have diabetes tend to have lower incidences of mental health concerns as compared to the general population this is thought to be because of the amount of familial, social and individual supports that are made available. I am starting a support group (May 2010) in both Longmont and Denver Colorado as I have already done quite a bit of research I thought that I might offer my group template to any psychotherapist that might want to start such a group in their own area. If you know some one who might be interested in this group (or other therapy services) please send them to my web page www.whbtherapy.com for more information. To clarify this is a support group and not a psycho education group this means that the therapist will be there to support you, to link themes, to create a feeling of safety, and to offer topics the therapist is not necessarily there to teach you in a directive fashion. Greetings you are invited to the teenager support group for teens with type 1 diabetes This group is designed to put you into contact with other teens that may be having similar experiences as you. The nature of this group is to share, to support, to learn, to grow, to resolve and to arrive at a place of greater comfort and acceptance. The group will be run by one or two psychotherapists their job will be to ensure that the group runs smoothly so that everyone feels comfortable, safe, and supported while the group members are sharing about their life with diabetes. They will also offer weekly topics to help facilitate meaningful conversations. This is not Continue reading >>

Looking For Information And Support For Type 2 Diabetes

Looking For Information And Support For Type 2 Diabetes

Looking for information and support for type 2 diabetes Previous Topic | Care and treatment for type 2 diabetes Food, eating and diets | Next Topic Looking for information and support for type 2 diabetes Information about diabetes came from a variety of sources including hospital consultants and nurses, GPs, practice nurses who ran diabetes clinics, dietitians, friends and relatives, support groups, radio and television, books, leaflets and the internet. Several people emphasised the usefulness of talking to others with diabetes and sharing experiences. Paul is an aircraft engineer and is married with 4 grown-up children aged 34, 32, 27 and 25 years. Ethnic background/Nationality: British. What about information. Where do you get your information about diabetes from? Because it is quite useful to have? Internet. If you look probably in your local paper, you'll be a diabetic meeting. It is worth going along, to one of them. Or whatever, going along to many. Because there are loads of people there with diabetes at different levels and it's nice to have a chat to people who are at different levels, and how much it's affected their lives and what they do to control it. And how they have sort of sorted out and that's the best ways you will get it. Doctors can't tell you too much, because the doctors haven't got too much experience of it, unless they are a diabetic themselves. You go to diabetic nurses, they are trained, but they are only trained to a certain level. They can't, if you haven't got experience in that sort of case or whatever it is, then you won't get any sort of information on it. You've got to go and talk to a person who has got it. And you'll find if you, if you do go to a diabetic meeting it will open your eyes a lot. How it's affected people's lives. And h Continue reading >>

Diabetes Support Group

Has anybody in the forum started a community diabetes support group? I live in a very small town (3,000 pop.) and would like to start or help to start a support group for diabetics.The nearest town with a support group is a 2 hour drive away, and there are 2 mountain passes to go over to get there, so a group in our town would be wonderful. Has anybody here had any experience in putting together a support group? I'd like some tips about how to get started, what kind of format we should use, can we get medical professionals to help out- any and all advice would be welcomed.

This reply will not answer all your questions because I live in a metropolis, but I am a member of a hospital-sponsored T1 support group. The group is MCed by a psychotherapist who is also T1. This, I believe, makes a great difference. We meet every two weeks, and have either a preselected topic to discuss or we just play it by ear. Either way, there is much to learn from each other's experiences and thoughts. Topics that we have covered include use of pumps vs. MDI; fluctuating carb ratios; discrimination, including in the workplace and the bedroom; who needs to know of your condition; complications; travelling, including what to Continue reading >>

Running A Diabetes Support Group?

Running A Diabetes Support Group?

By Malina8 Latest Reply2015-07-18 05:24:22 -0500 My Community Health Foundation has contacted me to run a #T1D support group. We don't have one here and upon inquiry they have asked me to start one. Even though I'm SUPER EXCITED I'm equally nervous. Not only have I never run one I've never been to one. Any thoughts or suggestions? That is fantastic! I am always in support of you guys who can start up a group that meets face to face. I run another kind of meeting, but one thing we do it pick a couple of topics to discuss, have something goofy to do, and always give them something in their hand to walk out with to help them remember what they learned at the meeting. You will find what works for you and your group through some trial and error, but always, always have a good time. That's what keeps them coming back. I am also starting a peer run diabetes support group, for all types of diabetics, this Fall. So, congrats on this, I think it will be a great learning opportunity for both of us. My group will be meeting once monthly, with a health professional joining the group for a portion of the meeting to discuss whatever their particular topic may be. (I've lined up a yoga instructor to discuss stress managment, a naturalist to discuss natural medicine, a dietitian to discuss carb counting and hope to line up more soon). I plan to leave the last half of the meeting open for people to have free and open discussion of their choice. It could be surrounding the topic that was covered that night, or it could be around issues they are having in their own lives at the moment. One thing I am going to do is Gabby posted yesterday (i believe it was) a list of "tip sheets" and I will be printing these out as hand outs, the link for this is : there is a lot of good information, parti Continue reading >>

Support Groups Come Of Age

Support Groups Come Of Age

If you’re looking for encouraging words and education, but the very words “support group” bring forth images of half-naked men pounding bongos in the forest, don’t despair. With over 800 groups in the United States for people with diabetes and a whole host of computer-based discussion groups springing up on the internet every day, there’s really something for everyone. Sure, support groups aren’t for everybody, but there’s no shortage of people who say the group experience has changed their lives. “It was a godsend,” said Christy Hoss of her support group in Los Angeles. “For me personally, the support group just kept me going-it helped me keep informed,” she said. When Hoss was diagnosed with diabetes over six years ago she felt alone and unsure about how to handle a disease that requires constant attention. “I hate shots and I always have,” Hoss said. “When I was diagnosed, I thought, if I had to get a disease, why one with so many shots?” It was the support group that put her in touch with other people with diabetes. It was “a way to establish comraderie,” she said. Members exchanged phone numbers, so words of advice or encouragement were never more than a phone call away between meetings. The first time he went to a support group meeting Steve Stokes said he was reluctant, thinking it would be “a disguised sales pitch for (hospital) services and diabetes paraphernalia.” But he was pleasantly surprised, saying he had found “a place I could go and be with people who were all too aware of how devastating diabetes can be…So different from the outside world where well-meaning co-workers and family say things like, ‘insulin injections cure diabetes, so don’t worry.'” Bettie Norgord, founder of the Dynamic Sharpshooters, Ariz Continue reading >>

Start Your Own Effective Type 2 Diabetes Support Group

Start Your Own Effective Type 2 Diabetes Support Group

Start Your Own Effective Type 2 Diabetes Support Group Start Your Own Effective Type 2 Diabetes Support Group Many of the following ideas have been used effectively in online support groups for many years. They definitely work. I've combined these ideas with the health support group structure used for many decades, very effectively, by La Leche League (LLL). LLL is an excellent model for diabetes activists, because they succeeded very well in promulgating health information that flew in the face of contemporary medical practice without alienating doctors or those who they wanted to reach. Their belief that babies did better if nursed seems tame nowadays, but when they started out in the 1950s, their message was radical.That it is now mainstream is mostly due to their efforts. For that reason, LLL makes a very good model for those of us with diabetes who would like to save others from the blindness, amputation, kidney failure and heart attack death that is almost guaranteed by the lackadaisical way that mainstream health organizations and family doctors currently treat Type 2 Diabetes. Don't attempt to convert people who are sure their doctor is giving them all the care they need. Look for people who are concerned about their poor blood sugars and know that they need help in improving them. Don't debate people who aren't interested. Just mention that you're holding a support group using some new techniques for blood sugar control that have been very effective. As people in your group succeed, a ripple effect will reach others who might not be interested at the outset. Don't Identify the Group with any Specific Dietary Approach Make it clear that no one will be told that they have to eat some specific diet. Stress the group's approach is to help people learn what it is t Continue reading >>

Diabetes Support

We provide healthcare, education and support services for those at-risk for diabetes and living with diabetes and their families. Any individual diagnosed with diabetes is automatically eligible to be a part of North Country HealthCare’s diabetes collaborative and diabetes care program. What is Diabetes? Diabetes occurs when a person has too much glucose (or sugar) in their bloodstream and not enough insulin to bring the amount of sugar down to a healthy level for their body. There are four types of diabetes: Type 1 diabetes occurs in childhood and happens when the body does not produce insulin. Type 2 or adult-onset diabetes usually occurs in adults and occurs when insulin production slows and/or the body is not able to use the insulin it produced. Prediabetes is diagnosed when sugar levels are higher than normal, but not as high as in diabetes. Gestational diabetes happens during pregnancy when a woman’s body is unable to produce enough insulin or becomes insulin resistant, which results in high blood sugar. Gestational diabetes can be dangerous for the mother and the infant, both during pregnancy and after birth. Education & Group Classes Diabetes education and self-management empowers a person to take control of their diabetes care and needs. We provide education, group classes, support groups and curriculum to give patients the tools they need to achieve health and wellness while managing diabetes. Diabetes in Pregnancy Class The Diabetes in Pregnancy class offers education to prevent, manage, and reduce complications of diabetes, as well as how to maintain a healthy pregnancy. Classes include a prenatal check with a family nurse practitioner and information about your health, your baby’s health, physical activity, healthy diet habits and much more.
