General Session: Interpretation of CGM Reports: Stop, Look and Listen

Richard Bergenstal, MD

The old warning at railroad crossings, Stop, Look and Listen is an appropriate starting point in the interpretation of CGM reports as we attempt to effectively cross over from an A1C to a CGM management era. To stop the current trend of clinical inertia and deteriorating A1C levels we will have to quickly cross two sets of tracks, first to get the CGM data automatically into the EHR and second to figure out how to effectively analyze and act on the CGM data. To achieve a robust and sustained improvement in glycemic management will require us to learn together, learn how to look at an AGP report and spot if action is needed and if so, precisely what action. .75 CE/CME
