How is type 2 diabetes treated?

There isn’t one specific method of treating type 2 diabetes. In addition to changes in lifestyle, there are several oral medications, injectable therapies, and insulins with different benefits and risks. Treatment should be customized for each individual based on their stage, presence of complications such as heart or kidney disease, and personal preferences. A diabetes specialist can help customize a therapy for you.

How is type 1 diabetes treated?

The treatment of type 1 diabetes uses insulin to replace the lack of insulin production from the pancreas. Individuals with type 1 diabetes manually injecting insulin via insulin pen or syringe use 2 types of insulin: 1) basal 2) prandial (bolus). Individuals using an insulin pump fill the pump with 1 type of insulin, and the pump continuously infuses insulin under the skin with the ability to mimic basal and prandial production.

Can a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) help me?

There is data1 showing insulin regimens augmented by CGM (both multiple daily injections and insulin pump) are associated with improved blood sugar control and reduced hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). CGMs can be expensive, especially if not covered by health insurance. We can help you create a customized plan taking into account benefits vs risks, personal preference, and cost.
