Check Out Integrated Diabetes Services

Blurb Description

Integrated Diabetes Services (IDS) is a private practice headed by award-winning author and certified diabetes educator Gary Scheiner, and can help ease your concerns for your child once they are out on their own. IDS clinicians are all experienced Certified Diabetes Educators who have type 1 diabetes, so they really do “get it". They work with students to improve and maintain blood sugar control and provide advanced self-management education in a private, convenient one-on-one format. They help students get prepped for life in college, work with them once at school, and support those who commute to college but live at home. IDS’s diabetes coaching services are available remotely via phone and the internet (including e-mail, texting and video conferencing). Evening hours are also offered, making it easy for students with hectic schedules. IDS offers a special package for CDN members, including monthly web-based consultations, fine-tuning glucose control based on downloaded data, and more!

"Thank you, CDN, for your gracious support of young people with T1D as they leave the full-time support of home. There's nothing better than seeing your grown child become fully independent while navigating the world of diabetes!"

Quote Description

"I had to recognize I could not be the one managing my son’s T1D. As a parent my role is removing barriers, supporting him when challenges occur, understanding that sometimes there is no explanation for BG results. Identifying my role early and providing unconditional support has proven successful in creating a very positive experience."
