Pediatric Diabetes Care Program

As a person and family living with Type 1 diabetes, you’ll gain a better understanding of the condition as you also build your confidence and ability in how you manage each day. With current evidence suggesting that consistent blood sugar control greatly diminishes the chances of long-term eye and kidney complications, you and your loved ones benefit from learning good self-management practices. By the time your child sets off for college or heads into the workforce, you can trust their skill in managing their own blood sugars.

New Onset Classes

If you or your loved one recently received a new diabetes diagnosis and a referral to Harold Hamm Diabetes Center in Tulsa, you’re assured of gaining extensive individual and group education, attention and counseling on a day-to-day basis with your care team members.

Part of your treatment involves intensive monitoring and frequent contact from team members until you and your family feel in good control of the condition you or your loved one experience and feel comfortable with your care plan.

Eventually, your routine visits to the Diabetes Center will happen four times a year. But your providers and care team members stand ready to help 24 hours a day in emergencies and when you face another illness.

Nutrition

Whether you recently received a diabetes diagnosis or you’re new to Harold Hamm Diabetes Center in Tulsa, you’ll meet with our dietitians to learn how you can adjust your diet and food intake for optimal insulin delivery and well-being. You also may ask to speak with a dietitian during scheduled visits with your provider or during individual nutrition visits.

Pumps and Sensors Training

If you and your care team determine that insulin pump therapy and/or continuous glucose monitoring needs to be part of your treatment plan, rely on certified trainers at the Diabetes Center in Tulsa to provide the help you need in a comprehensive pump-and-sensors education program handled in our offices.

Research Opportunities to Improve Diabetes Treatment

Ongoing research studies at our Tulsa location, such as the Type 1 Diabetes Exchange and others, help advance diabetes knowledge and treatment by following participants over time to test new types of insulin or other innovative treatments. The Diabetes TrialNet study, sponsored by the National Institutes of Health, seeks to better detect future risk of Type 1 diabetes.

Ask your multidisciplinary care team at the Diabetes Center about ways you may be able to participate in ongoing research projects or clinical trials. If you qualify, you may help our dedicated researchers find new and innovative treatment options or advanced technology for people who live with diabetes.
