Reassure Yourself With Continuous Glucose Monitoring
What is a Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM)?
A CGM system is a small device that measures glucose levels throughout the day and night, providing measurements every few minutes and creating trend lines 24/7. This constant stream of information gives you vital information to use when making decisions about how to manage your blood sugar. 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.
Do you qualify for a CGM?
Types of CGMs
EHCS carries the most popular CGM systems from Abbott, Dexcom, Medtronic and Senseonics. Many insurances, including Medicare (review Medicare’s guidelines here), cover CGM technology for customers who meet certain criteria, and most CGMs function separately from an insulin pump.
