Have Questions About the Course?

  • What will I learn in The 5 Essentials for Thriving with Type 1 online course?

    The 5 Essentials for Thriving with Type 1 Diabetes are: Understanding Basal/Long-Acting Insulin, Understanding Rapid-Acting Insulin, Food & Dosing/Nutrition, Movement & Exercise and Emotional Self-Care. You will learn a wealth of valuable information on each topic. Each essential is separated into its own chapter, containing 3 - 7 handouts and a series of mostly 5 - 8 minute videos. There are 6 total chapters in the course: Introduction chapter, plus a chapter on each of The 5 Essentials.

  • What are the benefits to me by signing up for this course?

    Whether you are newly diagnosed or you’ve had type 1 diabetes for decades, you will gain tremendous value from this course. The videos and handouts provide extremely beneficial information on how to successfully manage type 1 that most people have never learned. If you are newly diagnosed, important pieces in your training are often missed. If you’ve had it for decades, there are life-changing concepts you likely have never learned. After learning this content, you will be able to: achieve more balanced and healthy blood sugar levels, confidently enjoy being active without going low, more accurately dose at mealtimes, no longer be baffled by unexplainable highs and lows, discover delicious meals and desserts that don’t spike your blood sugar, and last but not least, finally find the answers to many diabetes frustrations that might have been baffling you for years!

  • Will my access to the course videos and handouts ever expire?

    You will have lifetime access to the content. You will be able to download the handouts and watch the videos as many times as you like, for as long as you’d like.

  • How many chapters are there and how is the content organized?

    The content is organized into 6 chapters, an introduction chapter followed by The 5 Essentials. In the Free trial and Basic course, due to the considerably smaller amount of content, you will get immediate access to all content. In the Advanced course, you will get access to one chapter per week, and after 6 weeks you will have full access to all content at anytime you’d like. We do this to make the content more easily digestible for you.

  • How long will it take to go through all the material?

    About 1- 2 hours per week for 6 weeks is enough to go through the Advanced course content. Each of the 6 chapters contain 3 - 7 short handouts and a series of primarily 5 - 8 minute videos, totaling about 30 – 60 minutes per chapter. The only video that is 30 minutes in length is a fun video of Dr. Jody cooking all of her favorite dishes in her kitchen.

  • Is it possible to customize the content in the Basic Course?

    Customizable content in the Basic course is not available. If you see a topic that you feel you already know in the Basic course, please be aware that Dr. Jody has unique content that you may not have learned before. We’ve created two educational, low-cost options: the Free Trial and the Basic course. However, we believe that the content contained in the Advanced course will give you more value than you could ever receive from countless doctors’ appointments and be one of the best investments in your health of your life.

  • How will I be able to track my progress in going through the material?

    The course platform is very user friendly. After you’ve watched a video or opened a handout, you will get a green check mark next to that item. There is also an “Achievements & Progress” counter at the top of the page that tracks your progress as well.

  • I have type 2 diabetes, will this course benefit me?

    A large portion of the content will be applicable also to patients with type 2 diabetes, most especially to those who use insulin. If you are not on insulin, there is content that will not apply to you, but you could still gain benefit from the course.

  • What if I have questions after I start the course and can I work with Dr. Jody Stanislaw or Gary Scheiner privately?

    For those in the Advanced course, you will have access to live, monthly Q & A calls as well as our private Facebook group. All participants can also reach out with technical questions to our team via info@drjodynd.com. After you’ve completed the full course, reach out to our team to request a private appointment with Dr. Jody. Completing the course is a prerequisite to working privately with Dr. Jody. Call Gary’s office directly if you’d like to work with him.
