Flash Glucose & Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGM)
Flash glucose & continuous glucose monitors (CGM) are becoming increasingly popular methods of monitoring blood sugar levels throughout the day without having to prick your finger as often. These systems also provide more information to the person monitoring their blood sugars by showing the direction & rate of blood sugar changes happening. These devices can be used on their own or can be integrated with an insulin pump.
There are occasionally restrictions on who can use these devices. Ask your diabetes team whether a flash glucose or continuous glucose monitor is right for you as well as coverage options available.
