Empowering Type 2 diabetes patients with innovative insulin management tools
Our guest today is James Malone, an endocrinologist and health care executive with over 30 years of experience in the field of diabetes.
James has seen firsthand the challenges that many people with type 2 diabetes (T2D) face when it comes to daily insulin management. Despite advancements in diabetes care over the years, the process of managing T2D remains just as complex and manual as it was when he first started practicing medicine.
While the majority of people with diabetes live with T2D, most of the industry’s innovation is focused on complicated systems for “power users” with type 1 diabetes (T1D). This leaves people with T2D struggling with the complex requirements of diabetes management with too few tools to help.
James will discuss the difficulties of managing T2D, the importance of self-management, and the disparities that exist between T1D and T2D patients. He will also share his thoughts on what health care professionals and diabetes innovators can do to provide better care for the underrepresented and more prevalent diabetes population.
So join us as we delve into the ongoing struggles faced by T2D patients and explore the steps to better care for this patient population.
He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “Lack of innovation is leading to disparities in diabetes care.”
