Nutrition Interventions to Increase Glucose Time in Target Range

Nutrition Interventions to Increase Glucose Time in Target Range

Sponsored and Hosted by: LifeScan Diabetes Institute

Achieving target blood glucose values in many people with diabetes remains a challenge. Join this 60-minute webinar to learn how key nutrition interventions (e.g., adjusting meal carbohydrate, protein, fat, fiber, etc. and eating times) can significantly help people with diabetes improve post-meal blood glucose, and glucose variability, leading to improved frequency of glucose time in range.
