Diabetes Health Type 1 & 2: A Personalized Approach to Diabetes Management

Sponsored by Lilly Diabetes

When it comes to diabetes management, there’s no such thing as one plan fits all. Each approach is as unique as the person living with diabetes. That’s where healthcare professionals come in: to help create personalized management plans that reflect an individual’s needs and lifestyle.


Creating a treatment plan is a multistep process that can be developed with your healthcare professional, considering the many factors that can impact A1C levels.1 Evaluating the amount of time your blood glucose levels remain in target range before and after meals can help your clinician to identify the type of diabetes management plan that’s right for you.2 This may include adding in a mealtime insulin, which can help improve postmeal blood sugar spikes.3


There are a few types of mealtime insulins available, and Eli Lilly and Company is one manufacturer that offers such options. Lilly is dedicated to working toward finding innovative solutions and remains focused on addressing the diabetes community’s unmet needs. Despite advancements in care, only 17 percent of youth and 21 percent of adults with type 1 diabetes in the U.S. are meeting the American Diabetes Association’s target goal A1C levels.4 That’s why we research and develop our insulins with these concerns in mind.


At Lilly, we understand the importance of a flexible lifestyle and the role diabetes management can play in your day-to-day life and activities. From meals and activities to stressors, your healthcare professional can help you identify patterns and behaviors that can be reflected in your personalized plan.


Millions of people with diabetes rely on insulin, and each and every one deserves individualized diabetes care tailored to their specific needs.5 We remain committed to innovative science and research on behalf of the diabetes community.
