Improving the Utility and Value of Continuous Glucose Monitoring Systems

October 25, 2017. Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems automatically track blood glucose levels over 24 hours, offering valuable information for people with diabetes. Due to challenges standardizing and understanding this technology, however, these devices remain underutilized. To help maximize the potential for CGM systems in diabetes management, a team of experts from the American Diabetes Association and the European Association for the Study of Diabetes has issued a joint scientific statement regarding the most effective and appropriate use of this technology.
