BALTIMORE — In this video exclusive, Susan Weiner, MS, RDN, CDN, CDCES, FADCES, talk to Jing Wang, PhD, MPH, RN, FAAN, on a newly developed metric for assessing glucose – the glycemic risk index.

Weiner is owner and clinical director of Susan Weiner Nutrition, PLLC, in North Bellmore, NY, a Endocrine today Editor and column editor Diabetes in Real Life. Wang is the dean and professor at Florida State University College of Nursing.

The Glycemic Risk Index – GRI – is a single score calculated from the seven metrics included in continuous glucose monitor tracings. It has benefits over time, as it folds in on risks for the severity of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia, Wang said.

The GRI is now available for use by clinicians and CGM users at www.diabetestechnology.org/gri.
