“Time in range” is a term within the diabetes community that refers to the amount of time that a person’s glucose levels are within the target range. The exact numbers vary depending on who you ask, but the consensus is that the range is between 70 to 180 mg/dl. To achieve the optimum time in range, you should combine Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) and Insulin Pump Therapy to give you longer periods at your target range.
Improving your time in range is a great resolution to make during this new year because it will enrich your health and happiness. Through the use of CGMs and Insulin Pump Therapy, you can check your glucose levels more often, and record the data to see where you stand throughout the day. Make note of the days where you spend the most time in range and try to replicate those daily decisions. By keeping constant track of your glucose levels, you will have another layer of insight into how your time in range fluctuates throughout the day.
