LS is 72 years old with type 2 diabetes and injects insulin 4 times a day. They were started on a CGM device last month and you are looking at the Ambulatory Glucose Profile (AGP) together.  You notice their time in range is 60%, their time above range is 38%, in low range is 2% and their coefficient of variation is less than 36%. 

What is the best response?

  1. We still need to improve your coefficient of variation.
  2. Based on these results, let’s decrease your insulin by 20%.
  3. Time in range should be 70% or greater for your age group.
  4. This information is going to help with problem solving.
