Unlike a single reading from a blood glucose meter, a CGM provides real-time, dynamic information about the speed and direction (trending higher or lower) of your glucose levels.
Having continuous feedback on diet, exercise, and insulin requirements from a CGM can help you make more informed treatment decisions. This awareness can lead to tighter glycemic control than using a blood glucose meter alone.
The ever-increasing regulations and demand for improved patient outcomes necessitate a need to connect medical devices and keep an automated check on them for regulatory purposes. It is also in the best interest of patient health.
