About this Event

Multiple Daily Injections (MDI), has given the diabetic more control over their life and their diabetes. People with diabetes no longer are forced to eat meals at certain times. MDI also imitates the body’s way of administering insulin just as if the Pancreas was healthy. Insulin is administered when needed and not until then. Diabetics who take care of monitoring their levels and adjusting their insulin can enjoy more flexibility in their meals. Tune into this webinar to help your patients/clients understand MDI and better monitor their diabetes.

Learning Objectives:
After this presentation, the attendee should be able to:

1.     Identify at least 2 types of basal insulin and 2 types of bolus insulin used for MDI therapy

2.     Explain 3 approaches to carbohydrate quantification

3.     Describe snacking guidelines for persons using MDI therapy
