We are pleased to now offer state-of-the-art Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) for patients.
CGM is a way to measure glucose levels in real-time throughout the day and night. A tiny electrode called a glucose sensor is painlessly inserted under the skin in your abdomen in our office. The device measures your glucose levels throughout the day and stores the information on a disk that is attached to the sensor (smaller than a half dollar). You’ll return within three to seven days for removal of the device. We then download the data from the sensor and create a report from the information collected to help you and your provider with your diabetes or pre-diabetes care plan. An additional benefit of CGM is that it generates a much more accurate HgA1c number (compared to traditional labwork).
We recommend the CGM for patients who are pre-diabetic and/or who are diabetic and having a hard time controlling blood sugar levels. The cost for CGM monitoring is $100. To learn more, talk with your provider or call the office at 513.760.5511.
