A CGM is a device that provides continuous insight into glucose levels throughout the day and night. The device displays information about glucose direction and speed providing users additional information to help with their diabetes management.
Studies have shown that CGM systems may help reduce your A1C and reduce your risk for hypoglycemia, whether you are on insulin injections or pump therapy.1
Unlike a blood glucose meter (BGM), which provides just a single glucose reading, CGM systems provide real-time, dynamic glucose information. You can gain valuable insight about your glucose levels, speed, and direction giving you additional insight to proactively manage your diabetes.
