CGM AND PUMP technology Continuous Glucose Monitoring

HOW CGM WORKS

Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) provides a more complete picture of your glucose levels by revealing lows and highs that HbA1C and fingerstick testing alone can’t always identify.

Using a sensor with a cannula inserted just below your skin, your CGM system will automatically receive glucose readings every five minutes allowing you to fingerstick less often.

COMBINING CGM AND INSULIN PUMP technology

Insulin pump technology may be used as an alternative to multiple daily insulin injections for people with diabetes. An insulin pump delivers precise doses of rapid-acting insulin through a cannula 24 hours a day, to match your body’s needs. Combining an insulin pump with CGM allows your pump to adjust your insulin based on your CGM readings.
