CGMOverview

Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM)

What is CGM?

Continuous Glucose Monitoring, or CGM, is an innovative way to much more closely monitor your glucose levels. Instead of pricking your finger periodically throughout the day, a small sensor under your skin provides frequent, automatic readings. With a glucose monitor, you only need to test your blood sugar when calibrating the system (frequency varies by brand) so your fingers can be saved.

What are the benefits of CGM?
  1. Because it is giving so many readings every day, CGM can help you look for trends in your blood sugar. CGMs will also catch if you trend toward crashes in the middle of the night when you might not be testing.
  2. Most people do not enjoy pricking their fingers constantly. A CGM device only requires finger pricks for calibrating (this varies by device).
Whether you manage your diabetes with daily injections, a pump, or oral medications, continuous glucose monitoring can help you take control.

How Do Continuous Glucose Monitors Work?

Continuous glucose monitors work through a tiny sensor inserted under your skin, usually on your belly or arm. The sensor measures your interstitial glucose level, which is the glucose found in the fluid between the cells. The sensor tests glucose and sends the information to a monitor or compatible smart device.

What Are The Benefits Of Continuous Glucose Monitors?

Compared with a standard blood glucose meter, using a continuous glucose monitor can help you:
  • Better manage your glucose levels every day
  • Have fewer low blood glucose emergencies
  • Need fewer fingersticks

Proper management of glucose levels is key in helping people with diabetes stay healthy and prevent complications.

Fewer Fingersticks With Continuous Glucose Monitors

If you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes and want better glucose control, a continuous glucose monitor may be right for you. It’s an advanced way to check glucose readings in real-time and monitor glucose readings over a period of time.
