Accurate Insulin Decisions (AID)

Source: The AID program is a joint initiative of The Endocrine Society, American Diabetes Association, American Association of Diabetes Educators, American College of Physicians, American Osteopathic Association, American Pharmacists Association, and Diabetes Nation.

The Accurate Insulin Decisions (AID) program offers decision support tools and educational resources on mealtime insulin to help people with diabetes better manage their disease. This program can help patients learn to set realistic goals and decide if mealtime insulin can help them achieve those goals, based on their lifestyle and priorities. The interactive decision aid covers topics such as when to take insulin, when to test blood sugar, and how to adjust mealtime insulin. Resources for physicians guide them in determining whether mealtime insulin may be appropriate for individual patients and when to refer someone to an endocrinologist or diabetes educator.
