Question of the Week | July 21, 2020

JR is 19 years old with type 1 diabetes and uses a continuous glucose monitor and insulin pump to manage their diabetes. For the past few months, JRs’ ambulatory glucose profile (AGP) indicates that JR runs above 80% time in range and less than 2% low and 1% very low.  JRs’ most recent A1c was 6.1%. 

What is the diabetes specialist’s best response?

  1. We just need to increase your time in range to 85%.
  2. An A1c of 6.1% is too low and can be dangerous.
  3. Great job. Now let’s see if we can achieve 0% low and very low.
  4. It seems like using technology is helping you reach your goals.
