Join Medical Chronicle for a free, one-hour, CPD-accredited diabetes webinar on a practical guide to time in range, presented by Dr Zaheer Bayat and Dr Reyna Daya. This webinar is sponsored by Sanofi.
The speakers for this webinar will give a practical guideline for the time spent in the target range (TIR) between 70 and 180mg/dL while reducing time in hypoglycaemia, for patients using continuous glucose monitoring. TIR goes beyond HbA1c in representing blood glucose levels because it captures variation – the highs, lows, and in-range values that characterise life with diabetes.
