Term of Offering:  This activity was released on July 12, 2019 and is valid for one year. Requests for credit must be made no later than July 12, 2020.

Fee Information & Refund/Cancellation Policy:  This educational activity is complimentary.



This program aims to educate healthcare professionals about the unmet needs of individuals living with type 1 diabetes. The presentation will focus on the new adjunctive therapeutic options and strategies to improve clinical care of this very difficult condition in order to achieve adequate glycemic control and improve other important related conditions. In addition to insulin strategies for type 1 diabetes and the use of continuous glucose monitoring, the recent clinical data from the use of sodium glucose transporter (SGLT) inhibitors in type 1 diabetes will be discussed in detail.


After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

• Summarize approaches to initiating, switching and adjusting basal and prandial insulins for improved glycemic control.
• Discuss physician and patient-directed insulin titration strategies used in clinical practice, which are different from those used in type 2 diabetes.
• Outline the most up to date clinical information on therapies other than insulin, including SGLT-2 and SGLT-1/2 inhibitors, for people with type 1 diabetes other than insulin.
• Describe practical considerations for initiating therapies other than insulin in type 1 diabetes.
• Discuss the information that continuous glucose monitoring technology provides.
• Describe effective therapeutic adjustments based on the trending or rate of change (ROC) arrows provided by CGM data.

*Jeremy Pettus, MD
Type 1 Track Director, Endocrinologist, Assistant Professor of Medicine, UCSD School of Medicine

Dr. Jeremy Pettus was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes when he was 15 years old.  Since that time he has dedicated his career to educating and treating others like himself.  He is currently an Endocrinologist and Assistant Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Diego.  There, he focuses primarily on clinical trials to develop and test new and innovative therapies for people living with diabetes.  These include studies ranging from medications to reverse or slow the disease once it occurs, to islet cell transplantation strategies, to device studies such as artificial pancreas technology.  As somebody who has the disease himself, sees patients with type 1, and is actively working on curing/treating the disease, we are honored to have him as our Type 1 Track director.  Dr. Pettus travels across the country and the world meeting other leading physicians and scientists and brings this information directly to TCOYD conference participants.


This course is designed for diabetes healthcare providers including endocrinologists, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, certified diabetes educators, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers wanting to expand their knowledge of diabetes management.
