What is a Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM)?

July 20, 2020

A CGM system is a small, wearable device that measures glucose levels throughout the day and night, providing measurements ever few minutes and creating trend lines 24/7. The device works by inserting a sensor under the skin, which is doable at home. The constant stream of information gives you vital information to use when making decisions about how to manage your blood sugar.

CGMs include a sensor and reader/receiver, and some systems also require a transmitter. Typically, you can wear a sensor for 10-14 days, depending on the manufacturer’s FDA approval. The reader/receiver displays and stores your glucose data so you can download readings, review history, and identify glucose trends.
