CGMS: The Future of Diabetes Management?

2 Min Read

With the ever-growing prevalence of diabetes across the world, managing this chronic condition can be a challenge. This is where continuous glucose monitoring systems (CGMs) come in. CGMs are devices that are used to monitor a person’s blood sugar levels around the clock, without having to take additional finger prick tests. By providing constantly updated readings of blood sugar levels, CGMs make monitoring diabetes easier and more accurate than other methods.

CGMs consist of a small device worn on the body that is connected to a sensor inserted beneath the skin. When activated, this device records and stores data about a person’s blood sugar level every five minutes for up to seven days at a time and sends it wirelessly to a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet for easy access. It also allows users to customize settings and receive alerts through their Apple watch or Android Wear if their blood sugar levels are too high or low.

The use of CGM technology has been proven to improve glycemic control and reduce the risk of hypoglycemia in patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes when compared with standard finger prick tests alone. As well as providing real-time readings of glucose levels, it can help people better understand how food, exercise and stress affect their blood sugars so they can adjust their lifestyle accordingly in order to better manage their diabetes.
