Continuous Glucose Monitoring: Connecting the Dots

Patient Guide

Continuous glucose monitoring, also called CGM, is a way for people with diabetes to monitor glucose levels. CGM measures glucose levels in the fluid between body cells every few minutes throughout the day and night. A CGM can also help with: 

  • Understanding glucose trends so you can manage eating, exercise and medication 
  • Providing more comfort at night and managing hypoglycemia
  • Understanding the importance of taking medication and timing of medication 

Our experts crafted a guide to help you or your loved ones find the perfect CGM.
