My Dose Coach is a simple digital dosing platform that supports you with insulin dosing if you have type 2 diabetes and your physician wants you to start, switch, or continue using once daily long-acting basal insulin. Each day, you automatically get basal insulin dose recommendations that help you determine the insulin dose that is appropriate for you based on your personal dose plan prescribed by your healthcare team.1 Adjusting your insulin doses, staying on track and working towards your target fasting blood glucose level has never been easier.
Through the My Dose Coach web portal, your healthcare team can easily prescribe the basal insulin dose plan that fits your needs.
The My Dose Coach app is a user-friendly way to safely and effectively adjust your basal insulin dose.1‒4 To get a dose suggestion, all you need to do is enter your fasting blood glucose level, any low blood glucose events and your current insulin dose.
To calculate your appropriate insulin dose, My Dose Coach simply uses the data entered by you and the set dose plan provided by your healthcare team.
All data entries are synchronized in real time. Your healthcare team can update your custom dose plan at any time if needed.
