Continuous Glucose Monitoring System

also provides predictive alarms and retrospective

Continuous Glucose Monitoring System. Current standards for assessing glucose levels have limitations. An A1C test, which measures glucose control during a three-month period, is important for long-term management, but it is only an average and does not reveal day-to-day glucose fluctuations. Fingerstick measurements only reveal a glucose value at a single moment in time. As a result, approximately 60% of hypoglycaemic events are not detected and patients have difficulty assessing glucose fluctuations while they sleep. Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) technology identifies four times more glucose excursions requiring therapy adjustment than just fingerstick monitoring alone. The Guardian Real-Time CGM system is indicated for continuous or periodic monitoring of glucose levels of adults (ages 18 and older) with diabetes mellitus for the purposes of improving diabetes management. The tiny glucose sensor is inserted under the skin and measures glucose levels in the interstitial fluid between the body's cells. The sensor is connected to a transmitter that sends glucose readings every five minutes to a monitor. The system provides high/low glucose alerts and also warn patients of significant glucose changes well before they become dangerous. Comprehensive trend graphs show the effect of diet, exercise, medication and lifestyle on glucose values. All therapy adjustments should be based on measurements obtained using a blood glucose meter (fingerstick measurement). Continuous Glucose Monitoring System
