Type 1 Diabetes: What Does it Take to be in Control?
The key to a healthy life with Type 1 Diabetes is to be in control. Control of glucose levels in an individual with Type 1 Diabetes involves at least three distinct areas:
1. Insulin Replacement – This includes choosing the type of injectable insulin and the method of delivering the insulin.
2. Blood Glucose Monitoring – This area covers the method of measuring insulin levels and the intensity of measurements.
3. Pattern Management – The third and most critical part: pattern management. This has often been the domain of the health care team, which knows that current techniques are not ideal.
The goal of this webinar is to empower people with diabetes. It is important to understand how to optimize and blood glucose control. Dr. Stephen Duck will outline the issues and discuss current techniques that are essential for a patient with Type 1 Diabetes to succeed.
