Doctors recommend a CGM for the following reasons
There are a few reasons why a CGM is recommended for diabetics, including:
- You are able to record any lows that can happen overnight. These lows are extremely dangerous for diabetics because these drops in blood sugar levels go undetected while the patient sleeps.
- They allow the patient and their care team to evaluate how their diet or activities affects their condition.
- They help monitor and tweak treatment plans on a day-to-day basis.
- They track blood sugar levels between meals and snacks to see if a pattern emerges.
