All Kinds of News for December 01, 2015
Turn-About Ranch has been working with Type 1 diabetics for over 10 years. We have a skilled medical team including our Medical Director, Jeffrey Chappell, MD and our nurse Sherree Rechtsteiner, A.P.R.N. Both of these individuals are highly skilled, experienced, and caring professionals.
Diabetic teens often struggle with many behavioral and emotional issues in addition to managing their diabetes responsibly. Turn-About Ranch is experienced in helping diabetic teens deal with these unique issues. The medical team and staff work with students individually to assess their unique needs and concerns and then develop a treatment plan that includes training and education regarding their diabetes. Students learn to count carbohydrates and track their numbers successfully, regaining control and responsibility for their physical health. They also learn how to effectively manage depressive symptoms that often accompany diabetes.
We also work with a variety of difficult medical problems that other treatment programs may not be willing or able to manage, for example, students with a high Body Mass Index (BMI), Crohn’s Disease or Celiac Disease. Please feel free to contact us at 800-842-1165 with those hard-to-place medical cases and we will carefully review each case as a clinical/medical team to determine our ability to meet their needs at Turn-About Ranch.
