FAQS

A. A CGM is a Continuous Glucose Monitor is a device that automatically tracks blood glucose levels at any time of day, letting you see your glucose levels immediately.

You can review how your glucose changes over a few hours or days to see trends.

A. A CGM works through a tiny sensor inserted under your skin, usually on your belly or arm. Most CGMs report blood sugars every 5 minutes.

The sensor measures your interstitial glucose level, which is the glucose found in the fluid between the cells.

A transmitter wirelessly sends the information to a monitor. The monitor may be part of an insulin pump or a separate device, which you might carry in your pocket or purse. Some CGMs send information directly to smartphones/tablets.

Several models are available and are listed in the American Diabetes Association’s product guide.

You still need a finger-stick glucose test twice a day to check the accuracy of your CGM against a standard blood glucose meter.
