Comparing and Contrasting Key Measures of Glycemia
Glycemia refers to the level of glucose in the blood, which is a key measure of diabetes management. There are several key measures of glycemia, including fasting plasma glucose (FPG), oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). This activity (#176672) is approved for 1 CPEU.
Speakers: Jane Jeffrie Seley, DNP, MPH, MSN, GNP, BC-ADM and Rachel Stahl Salzman, MS, RD, CDN, CDCES
