According to a recent study presented on September 17th by researchers from the Medical School of the University of Montpellier and Lapeyronie University Hospital, most adults living with type 1 diabetes aren’t achieving optimal glucose control. Comprised of almost 4,000 adults aged 26 or older from 17 different countries across the globe, the study aimed to determine if patients with type 1 diabetes were successfully controlling their glucose levels. The results found that only one quarter to one fifth of the participants achieved optimal A1c levels.
Researchers hope that patients receive better education to help them manage their glucose levels more precisely, particularly in light of improving technology.
