What is Personal CGM?

Provides patients with more complete information than fingersticks

  • Glucose sensors are inserted under the skin and measure glucose levels every 5 minutes, 24 hours a day.
  • Real-time glucose data is displayed, along with trends and the ability to see alerts.
  • Fingersticks are required to calibrate the glucose sensor and before making treatment decisions.

  • Fingerstick testing with 24-hour continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) provides far more information than fingerstick testing alone. Fingerstick testing alone may miss up to 60% of lows.1

    CGM Reveals Insights Beyond BGs and A1C

    When measurements are taken infrequently, one can miss vital data points.

    CGM takes readings every 5 minutes 24 hours a day, providing a more accurate understanding of glucose readings than infrequent BG meter readings.

    How does Personal CGM improve outcomes?

    With large unmonitored glycemic variability, lowering target A1C can increase hypoglycemic events

    Target Glucose Range A1C = 8.0% A1C = 8.5% Time of Day Glucose (mg/dL) Continuous Glucose Sencor Readings Average Glucose Readings Midnight 3AM 6AM 9AM 12PM 3PM 6PM 9PM Midnight 100 200 300 400

    What is Personal CGM?

    Reduce variability first, then lower the target to improve A1C without increasing hypoglycemic events
