The impact of food on glucose trends


Access to 24/7 glucose data with CGM offers incredible insight into the close relationship between food, insulin, and glucose levels. Different types of food lead to very different post-meal glucose responses. Explore how to spot these trends and strategize solutions to help improve outcomes.

Learning objectives:

  1. Identify challenging glucose trends related to various types of foods that may be affecting time in range and glucose variability
  2. Explain how and why these trends occur
  3. Examine practical strategies to help with post-meal glucose challenges including matching insulin action to food, using trend arrows, alerts, and automated insulin delivery
