Advances in Diabetes Technology- Part 1: A Monitoring Revolution

Activity Preview

Move over glucometer, there’s new tech in town revolutionizing glucose measurement. The continuous glucose monitor (CGM) measures a person’s blood glucose profile every 1 to 5 minutes—a dramatic upgrade over the glucometer’s isolated snapshots. CGM’s game-changing technology will increasingly inform treatment decisions for those living with diabetes and prediabetes as well as those who care for them. This activity will feature real-world cases to increase your knowledge of CGM data and how it can help you improve patient outcomes.

  1. Explain the clinical evidence and influence of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) on diabetes outcomes.
  2. Compare and contrast CGM devices.
  3. Discuss the role a pharmacist can play in enhancing diabetes care using CGM.;
  4. Interpret the data from a CGM, including the ambulatory glucose profile, time in range, and trends in glucose levels depicted by real-time arrows.
