Frequently Asked Questions about CGM
A continuous glucose monitor (CGM) is a small, wearable device that measures glucose levels throughout the day and night. This constant stream data provides measurements every few minutes and creates trend lines 24/7, helping wearers spot trends, reduce or eliminate fingersticks and make better decisions regarding their health.

Once eligible, they will work with you, your physician and your insurance to meet your CGM needs. If your insurance doesn’t yet cover CGM, no worries — we have cash-pay options available as well!
The reader/receiver can display and store data. Most importantly, this data can be downloaded and used to review your glucose history and identify glucose trends. This makes it easier for you and your healthcare team to review and refine your diabetes treatment regimen.
Most CGMs have apps that enable you to use your phone as the receiver so that you don’t have to carry the reader/receiver. We recommend keeping the reader/receiver around in case something happens to your phone so that you won’t be without your data!
Take Control Of Your Diabetes and Learn Benefits of a CGM
A Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) provides a constant stream of data about your blood glucose levels and helps you spot trends. As a result, you can better plan ahead. For example, if you know your blood sugar drops when you exercise, you can bring a snack. CGMs provide a complete overview of your blood sugar levels in real-time to help eliminate the “guessing game” of managing diabetes. Therefore, CGMs are an effective way to better manage your diabetes, help prevent fewer episodes of hypoglycemia, improve blood sugar control and achieve an optimal A1C level.
People can wear most sensors up to 10 or 14 days, depending on the manufacturer’s FDA approval, but there’s now a new implantable CGM that lasts for 90 days!
