An international group of diabetes experts has recommended that spending at least 70% of your time (~17 hours/day) in range is advisable for most adults with type 1 or type 2 diabetes who are not pregnant, older or considered high-risk.14
Of course, not everyone will be able to meet this target, or at least not right away. Making improvements in Time in Range will vary for each person with diabetes, and that’s okay. Keep in mind that even small increases in Time in Range can have a positive impact.14 So don’t get discouraged - keep scanning regularly and sticking with your diabetes management plan!
