The overall goal of this project is to develop a novel family friendly intervention that will
help teens with poor metabolic control of their type 1 diabetes increase and sustain daily
self monitoring of blood glucose and lower HbA1c. This is important because poor metabolic
control has long-term health implications. This project will provide important information
regarding new effective ways to improve outcomes among teens with poorly controlled type 1
Primary hypotheses are that the intervention, MAxIM, will: (1) help teens improve and
maintain glucose control, and (2) improve decision making (improve executive function and
reduce delay discounting), which will predict treatment outcome.
