Insulin Pumps & Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM)
Insulin pump therapy is for patients with type 1 diabetes and those with type 2 diabetes who require insulin. Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) uses under-the-skin sensors to measure glucose levels continuously, 24 hours a day over 14 days- without the need for painful finger sticks.
CGM provides tremendously useful information and insights about how medication, food and exercise are affecting your blood glucose levels so that adjustments can be made to prevent glucose levels from becoming too high or too low.
Our staff is trained to apply, use and interpret CGM devices. We download the data on the 7th day and use the insights to make recommendations, so that the final download on the 14th day can show the effect of the changes made.
