The REAL-T Diabetes Study
About the Study
- We have completed enrollment of young adults with type 1 diabetes (T1D) for a study on health management.
- We are researchers at USC testing a lifestyle-based telehealth program for young adults with type 1 diabetes. We would like to find out if this program can help young adults aged 18-30 deal with the everyday hassles and problems they experience in managing their diabetes. Half of participants will receive the REAL-T intervention, while the other half will receive their usual care.

Frequently Asked Questions
What will happen in the study?
Everyone in the study will have a data collection session once every 3 months. Half of the people in the study will be randomized into occupational therapy. They will meet with an occupational therapist (OT) over 6 months using telehealth. They will connect and talk through their challenges and/or goals related to their diabetes care.
Occupational Therapy is the therapeutic use of everyday activities to enhance or enable participation and improve overall quality of life. In REAL-T, your OT will work with you through video calls to help you find ways to better manage your diabetes and work on goals that you want to work on.
