Garg sk, voelmle mk, beatson cr, et al use of continuous glucose monitoring in subjects with type 1 diabetes on multiple daily injections versus continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion therapy: a prospective 6-month study diabetes care 2011 mar 34(3):574-9 .
Dexcom is committed to helping patients have a positive cgm experience and better diabetes management from help getting started, to tutorials and faq, dexcom can provide support and guidance for a better experience with continuous glucose monitoring (cgm.
Dexcom continuous glucose monitoring helps minimize the guesswork that comes from making decisions based solely on a number from a blood glucose meter reading, for better diabetes management continuous glucose monitoring and intensive treatment of type 1 diabetes, n engl j med 2008: 359(14) 1464-1476.
The continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (csii) pump became commercially available in the 1980s, and it is now a common and accepted way of providing insulin (3,4) the emergence of continuous glucose monitoring (cgm) followed in the 1990s, with the first reports on cgm by microdialysis in 1992 (5,6. Patients meeting these criteria were randomly assigned to receive continuous glucose monitoring (continuous-monitoring group) or home monitoring with a blood glucose meter (control group) with the use of a permuted-block design stratified according to clinical center, age group (≥25 years, 15 to 24 years, and 8 to 14 years), and glycated hemoglobin level (≤80% and 80%. The development of patient-friendly, minimally invasive, continuous glucose monitors (cgm) removes this limitation earlier this year, the fda approved the first cgm system for clinical use another was approved last week.
Always know your glucose number and where it's headed with the new dexcom g6 continuous glucose monitoring (cgm) system — fda-permitted for making diabetes treatment decisions with zero fingersticks and no calibration. The use of continuous glucose monitoring averaged 60 or more days per week for 83% of patients 25 years of age or older, 30% of those 15 to 24 years of age, and 50% of those 8 to 14 years of age the rate of severe hypoglycemia was low and did not differ between the two study groups however, the trial was not powered to detect such a difference.
A transmitter on the sensor then sends the information to a wireless-pager-like monitor that you can clip on your belt the monitor displays your sugar levels at 1-, 5-, 10-, or 15-minute intervals if your sugar drops to a dangerously low level or a high preset level, the monitor will sound an alarm.
