Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) is an FDA-approved wearable device that provides real-time glucose measurements. Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) tracks glucose levels throughout the day and night and can alert you if your levels go too high or low. CGM systems take glucose measurements at regular intervals, 24/7 and translate them into dynamic data to show glucose direction and rate of change.
If you test your sugar 4 or more times per day and inject insulin more than 3 times, the answer is
CGM systems have been found to help those with type 1 diabetes, especially those who use an insulin pump, manage their A1C and blood sugar fluctuations.
CGMs may greatly improve the quality of life for many people with diabetes, thanks to a reduced number of required fingerpricks, which may be painful and difficult to manage frequently. CGMs may help clarify the effect of diet and exercise on blood sugar levels.
Medicare covers therapeutic continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) and related supplies instead of blood sugar monitors for making diabetes treatment decisions, like changes in diet and insulin dosage.
