Unlike traditional glucose monitors requiring finger pricks that provide only momentary data, Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGMs) offer a more comfortable and accurate alternative for continuous diabetes management.

What Does a Glucose Monitor Do?

CGM is one of the most comfortable and easy ways to keep track of your blood glucose levels. This device measures your body's glucose using small sensors placed under your skin, often on your belly or arm.

The sensor transmits data to a wireless monitor, which you can clip to your belt or waistband. The monitor displays sugar levels at 1-, 5-, 10-, or 15-minute intervals. It also alerts you if your sugar goes below or above a set level, making glucose management easier and pain-free.

What Are the Benefits of CGM?

The benefits of capturing blood sugar readings around the clock are:

  • Recording of dangerously low overnight blood sugar levels that can go undetected
  • Tracking high levels between meals
  • Showing early morning blood sugar spikes
  • Describing how diet and exercise affect you
  • Determining if your treatment plan really works on a day-to-day basis

Additionally, the continuous monitoring on your part has the added benefit of helping your doctor create the best diabetes management plan, allowing for:

  • Amount of insulin you should take
  • An exercise plan that fits you
  • Number of meals and snacks for each day
  • Correct medications and dose amounts.
