Forget January, the change of seasons with its reinvigorating cooler weather and changing leaves are great motivators to spend some time focusing on your health.  

It’s a great time to check in with your diabetes self-care to help you stay on track before the craziness of the holidays. Is your A1C where you want it to be? How is your blood pressure and cholesterol levels? Did your time at home in quarantine and stress over COVID-19 take their toll on your waistline?  

You may need a little fine-tuning of your diabetes health but don’t worry! Everyone gets a bit off track, especially during a pandemic. That’s exactly why it’s good to take stock every once in a while and do a health “Tune-Up” to help you get back into the groove of things.  

Joslin and the DO IT Program are here to help you get BACK ON TRACK! The Diabetes Outpatient Intensive Treatment Program (DO IT) helps people with any type of diabetes do a temperature check on their health and provides a personalized tune-up.

This intensive four-day diabetes boot camp helps you to focus on your diabetes self-care, re-set your goals, and get you ready for this holiday season.

Your DO IT team is made up of an endocrinologist, an exercise physiologist, a registered dietitian, a nurse educator, a behavioral health expert, and a clinical pharmacist. All who work together with YOU!

After collaborating with you to identify your diabetes challenges, your team will work with you to design personalized nutrition, exercise, and medication plan.

The program focuses on the latest techniques in diabetes management to help you with:

  • Managing glucose variability
  • Recognizing, reducing and treating low glucose levels
  • Responding to high glucose levels
  • Adjusting and timing of medications
  • Reducing stress and diabetes burnout
  • Identifying strategies for staying motivated
  • Discovering the latest in diabetes technologies
  • Managing diabetes self-care to stay healthy
  • Removing the guesswork from “eating on the run”

Live your best life, get a handle on your diabetes self-care.
