The Blood Sugar Basics program was developed by the American College of Endocrinology (ACE) with support from Merck to provide useful information about blood sugar for people living with type 2 diabetes, including helpful tips on how to control blood sugar levels.
If you have diabetes or know a close friend or family member with the disease, this website is a great resource to help you learn more about the role blood sugar plays in diabetes and how you can work with your diabetes healthcare team (primary care provider, endocrinologist and diabetes educator) to set your blood sugar goals.
