As diabetes care continues to evolve, especially in regard to insulin therapies, so too must the conversations being had between patients and doctors.

Fortunately, a recent webinar titled “Institutional Perspectives in Diabetes: New Advances in Insulin Therapy for the Management of Type 2 Diabetes” hosted a myriad of thoughtful discussions regarding the importance of insulin therapies for diabetes care.

As a certified diabetes care and education specialist and a dietitian, Cheryl Marco, RDN, LDN, CDCES at the Division of Endocrinology at Thomas Jefferson University, offered unique and valued insights into how patients with diabetes could implement insulin therapy and healthy dietary practices into their medical regimen.

In an interview with associate editor Giuliana Gross, Dr. Marco spoke of how her presentation, “Patient Communication and Education”, addressed psychological insulin resistance, hypoglycemia management, dietary changes that patients could make to establish a healthier life with diabetes, and continuous glucose sensors.
