The first update to this feature focuses on three areas of diabetes learning:
An intro to your short acting insulin:
Knowing the science behind your personal short acting insulin can make a big difference to how you dose. Knowing more about your insulin can help you answer questions about when to go for a walk, when to dose for a meal or if you need to make further treatment decisions. For instance, if you are treating a stubborn high, knowing when your short acting insulin is going to have its strongest effect on your blood sugar can help you wait to see if your blood sugar lowers before taking further action, and avoid potentially going low. Head over to this journey to learn more about the science of your personal short acting insulin.
An intro to your long acting insulin:
Sticking to a regular routine with your long acting insulin (also known as background insulin) can help keep your blood sugar stable between meals, and help you sleep at night. Understanding more of the science behind it can help you understand more about how it is affecting you throughout the day and help you build routines to ensure the best outcomes for you. Open the long acting insulin journey to learn more.
Spotting your blood sugar patterns:
Seeing what usually happens with your blood sugar can help you make decisions and plan your self management. Blood sugar can feel random, so jump into this journey to see how you can start spotting your blood sugar trends and help make it all feel a little less random.
Whether you want to learn about all of these, or start with one, a little bit each day goes a long way. Head over to your learning journey today and keep checking back as it unfolds.
