Continuous Glucose Monitoring (cgm)
A continuous glucose monitor is a small device that you wear just under your skin. It measures your glucose (sugar) levels continuously throughout the day and night, letting you see trends in your levels and alerts you to highs and lows. It sends this information to a display device using Bluetooth.
The information collected about your blood sugar levels can be accessed instantly and shared with your healthcare team so that they can review and adjust your treatment appropriately. It also means that the information can be shared easily during virtual appointments with your healthcare team.
