The T1D Exchange Clinic Registry Experience

In a new study co-authored by UF Diabetes Faculty, researchers noted markedly different diabetes self-management techniques between children with excellent glycemic control and their poor-glycemic counterparts. This knowledge, made possible by the T1D Exchange Network, may help improve glycemic control among current and future type 1 diabetes patients.
