Enhancing the Lives of Patients with Diabetes through Continuous Glucose Monitoring

A continuous glucose monitoring system, or CGM for short, is a compact medical system that continuously monitors your blood sugar levels in more or less real time (there’s normally a five-minute interval between readings). To use a CGM, you insert a small sensor onto your abdomen that includes a tiny cannula that penetrates the skin.

Explore the new technologies used to monitor blood glucose without the use of traditional, multiple finger sticks.
