Improvements in Glycemic Control

CGM has proven to be the best outpatient glycemic management system for both reducing A1C and time spent in hypoglycemia1-3. Regular CGM use is also associated with an increase of time spent in range2, a significant reduction of severe hypoglycemic incidents,4 and associated with many behavioral changes that that promote significant positive change in diabetes self-management.5

Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is a powerful tool delivering information that patients with diabetes can use to improve their diabetes management and be empowered to sustain control. In this 2-minute video, see the differences between self-...
