Continuous Glucose Monitoring

What is Continuous Glucose Monitoring?

Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) allows us to continually measure the blood sugar level of a person with diabetes.

This monitor adheres to the skin and uses a sensor that measures interstitial glucose levels, providing real-time information via a dedicated application installed on the patient’s phone. This enables greater control and monitoring of each patient’s condition.

Why is the Glucose Sensor important?

Continuous Glucose Monitoring is crucial because it enables individuals to continually visualize their sugar levels, helping prevent episodes of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and hyperglycemia (high blood sugar), both of which pose health risks.

This device empowers individuals to adjust their diet, exercise, and medication, thus maintaining their blood sugar levels within a healthy range.

Why use the Glucose Sensor?

It allows individuals to:

  • Continuously monitor their blood sugar levels without the need for finger pricking.
  • Understand the impact of certain foods on their blood sugar levels.
  • Prevent episodes of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia.
  • Identify glucose patterns.
  • Share data with healthcare specialists and family members.
  • Make informed decisions in managing their treatment.

It is 100% waterproof, allowing for aquatic exercises in pools, beaches, and rivers, with a depth resistance of up to 1 meter for 1 hour.
