Adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes will be invited to the Mindfulness study. They will be randomly assigned to a Control or Active Group. The Active Group will learn Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) through an online website designed to teach the basic principles of MBSR in six week-long modules. They will be measured in three main areas: before learning the intervention, directly after learning it and 3 months after learning it to determine any changes in their Mindful attention awareness, Diabetes Quality of Life and HbA1c. The Control Group will also take the questionnaires at the beginning of the study, 6 weeks after it begins and then 3 months from the beginning to obtain data for all three time points when they have not received access to the modules/intervention.
Research Design and Procedures This study will utilize a between group repeated measures design to measure the effects of the learned MBSR intervention over time. MBSR will be the independent variable. Dependent variables include mindfulness, diabetic quality of life and HbA1c. Adolescents with Type 1 diabetes will be randomly assigned to an intervention group or a wait list/control group that will be taught MBSR after all data has been collected. The study will utilize a 2 (experimental versus wait-list control group) by 3 (pretest [Time 1], posttest [Time 2], and 3 month follow-up [Time 3]) to examine within and between group differences overtime on two psychosocial measures including mindfulness and quality of life. The physiological measure understudy, HbA1c, reflects glucose control over the previous three month period and will be measured at Time 1 and Time 3. MBSR training will be provided via an online website and secure data collection site called MySweetMind.org.

A subclass of DIABETES MELLITUS that is not INSULIN-responsive or dependent (NIDDM). It is characterized initially by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA; and eventually by GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; HYPERGLYCEMIA; and overt diabetes. Type II diabetes mellitus is no longer considered a disease exclusively found in adults. Patients seldom develop KETOSIS but often exhibit OBESITY.
The time period before the development of symptomatic diabetes. For example, certain risk factors can be observed in subjects who subsequently develop INSULIN RESISTANCE as in type 2 diabetes (DIABETES MELLITUS, TYPE 2).
A subtype of DIABETES MELLITUS that is characterized by INSULIN deficiency. It is manifested by the sudden onset of severe HYPERGLYCEMIA, rapid progression to DIABETIC KETOACIDOSIS, and DEATH unless treated with insulin. The disease may occur at any age, but is most common in childhood or adolescence.
A type of diabetes mellitus that is characterized by severe INSULIN RESISTANCE and LIPODYSTROPHY. The latter may be generalized, partial, acquired, or congenital (LIPODYSTROPHY, CONGENITAL GENERALIZED).
A life-threatening complication of diabetes mellitus, primarily of TYPE 1 DIABETES MELLITUS with severe INSULIN deficiency and extreme HYPERGLYCEMIA. It is characterized by excessive LIPOLYSIS, oxidation of FATTY ACIDS, production of KETONE BODIES, a sweet smell to the breath (KETOSIS;) DEHYDRATION; and depressed consciousness leading to COMA.
