So, for all this talk about time in range, what does it do?
It makes you feel better. And at the end of the day, our entire goal is to make lives longer, but also easier! Time in range is a key step for knowing what you need to manage your health and make your life easier.
Because that’s who it’s all about: you. We’re invested in you and helping you tell your own story about diabetes.
It’s your health and your well-being, and you are who we’re trying to help. With TIR, you can tell your own story about blood sugar levels, what drives their daily fluctuations (a.k.a—the rollercoaster we’re all on), and how your healthcare professionals can help you manage them.
While A1C is an important metric for blood sugar levels, it only provides an average over the course of months. In that time span, your blood sugar levels may fluctuate wildly, but you’d have no way of knowing how much time you’re actually spending in range, feeling your best. On the other hand, TIR is a more detailed measurement of your health that gives you the power to make decisions that will make you feel better.
See the graphic below, look how three different people with the same average blood glucose and the same A1C, spend wildly different times in range. A1C is valuable but limited. Time in range can help us see the bigger picture.
This technology has the power to improve millions of lives. We’ve already made a huge impact in the lives of so many people, but there’s still more work to do. We want you to be the next person whose life is changed for the better with time in range.
You can make that happen by learning more about the impact that time in range can have.
