(BPT) - Blood Sugar Basics: Get to Your Goals is an educational program developed by the American College of Endocrinology, with support from Merck, aimed at helping people living with type 2 diabetes work with their doctor to know their A1C number (average blood sugar level over the past 2-3 months) and set and reach their personal A1C goal to help reduce their risk of serious complications. The American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists recommends that many people with diabetes have an A1C of 6.5 percent or less, but nearly half are not at this goal. Diet, exercise and medication, when prescribed, play key roles in helping people get to their blood sugar goals, and sometimes changes are necessary. Visit BloodSugarBasics.com for more information.
