Basal insulin is the foundation of intensive insulin management. Appropriate basal insulin doses are necessary to ensure personal safety, lifestyle flexibility, and optimal blood glucose control. Whether you use an insulin pump or take insulin by injection, this course will teach you the “art and science” of fine-tuning your basal insulin doses. Specific topics include:
The science behind basal insulin
The basal/bolus relationship
Options for meeting basal insulin needs
Procedures for testing basal insulin settings
Guidelines for making basal insulin adjustments
Applying temporary changes to basal insulin
Do you have what it takes to “test out” of this class?
Might we be able to teach you something new, or do you already know it all when it comes to basal insulin?
Thanks again for the Skype call today and for all your help. We really have come a long way since Cate's a1c was 8… now down to 6! You were the catalyst that helped us back to a new normal and you've been with us every step of the way since. I am super grateful! Diabetes may never be easy, but having the tools to successfully navigate a life without a pancreas is worth its weight in gold.
