CGMs / Continuous Glucose Monitors
As all diabetes educators know, blood glucose monitoring is an important part of managing diabetes. The traditional way is to prick your finger and place a drop of blood on a test strip inserted in a meter for a glucose reading. Patients often hate the thought of doing this every day. CGMs or Continuous Glucose Monitors give diabetics a more convenient and painless way to get their patients to keep track of their blood sugars. People who benefit most are those who check their CGM monitor or phone frequently and use the information to make informed decisions about their care. Controlling your glucose levels can improve your overall health and help you prevent the future diabetes complications.
