Continuous Glucose Monitoring systems (CGM Systems) have become more widely used in order to keep diabetes under better control, to intervene in the rise and fall in sugar during the day, and to minimize fluctuations in sugar.
Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems help you manage diabetes by measuring glucose throughout the day and night. A sensor placed just under your skin measures your glucose level every 3 minutes, 24 hours a day. With continuous glucose monitoring systems, you can detect hypo/hyperglycemia events early and intervene, and you can create your own diet by observing how much the foods you consume affect your blood sugar. You can also see the effects of exercise on your blood sugar, and also determine the duration and intensity of your exercise. The blood glucose analysis results provided by the system also allow the doctor to direct the diabetes treatment.
