There are a lot of reasons why type one diabetes patients may gain weight. One of the most prominent is increased insulin use. This insulin use is often increased because the patient is controlling their glucose with the goal of an 80%TIR and an A1c target of 6.0 or lower. This week our focus is on these patients and insulin using type two patients.

Our exercise Guru, Dr. Sheri Colberg, starts us off on how to maximize insulin use during exercise, while this week’s featured intern Emma Kammerer shares her findings on Low Carb diets and how BMI affects cardiovascular outcomes in type one patients.
