Continuous glucose monitoring has become widely adopted and utilized in recent years. Devices continue to improve in accuracy, reliability and convenience and insurance coverage is more widespread. CGMs, considered a standard of care for people treated with intensive insulin programs, measure interstitial fluid glucose levels and display numerical and graphic data regarding current glucose status, along with current and projected trends in the glucose. This allows people with diabetes to proactively respond to blood glucose data rather than waiting for hyper or hypoglycemia to develop, offering the ability to take preventive action.
Device download reports vary by manufacturer and include differing data presentations; however, there has been a recent push to focus on use of the Ambulatory Glucose Profile. Learn more about key measures and interpretation steps
