How does CGM work?
A continuous glucose monitor is a small, wearable device system that tracks your glucose throughout the day and night, notifying you of highs and lows so you can take action. A CGM system consists of three parts:
Small, under-the-skin sensor that measures glucose levels in the interstitial tissue
Transmitter that attaches to the sensor and transmits data
Receiver or smart device that displays real-time glucose information
Why is CGM so helpful?
Continuous glucose monitoring can help you make the best possible treatment decisions. With CGM, you will see your blood glucose trend data instead of basing your choices solely on a single number from a blood glucose meter reading.
You can also set thresholds for high and low numbers, and the CGM will alert you when it senses your glucose levels have moved out of the safe range you set.
