#78 Think Like a Pancreas Chapter 6: Basal Insulin Dosing with Shannan
Who's ready to think like a pancreas?! This is the sixth episode in our 10 week, Think Like a Pancreas Book Club Series and today I am covering chapter SIX called, Basal Insulin dosing. My guest for this one is my good friend and T1D mama, Shannan. This chapter gives great, step by step instructions on how to do basal testing whether you are on MDI or an insulin pump. Getting those basal settings correct is so very important and definitely the first step you should nail down when building a solid foundation for better, more stable diabetes management.
Listen, if you have type 1 diabetes or your kid has type 1 diabetes or someone you love has diabetes or perhaps you have type 2 diabetes and are taking insulin, I can confidently say you need to own a copy of this book and actually read it. I call it my diabetes bible and refer back to it often! It will teach you how to manage your insulin better and empower you to make all those hundreds of daily diabetes decisions faster and with more confidence. I sure do hope you will follow along with us. See links below to get your copy from Amazon or get your signed copy from the author, Gary Scheiner, on his company's website, integrateddiabetes.com. Enjoy!
