What is Continuous Glucose Monitoring?
Continuous glucose monitoring is a device that provides glucose readings throughout the day and night allowing people with diabetes to see their glucose levels and track how quickly they are increasing or decreasing.
A typical CGMS provides up to as many as 288 glucose readings per day (once every 5 mins). CGMS uses a tiny sensor placed under the skin of your belly. You can put it in quickly and it’s usually not painful.
There is one more addition recently on continuous monitoring where a small needle is attached below skin and it says for 14 days. A special sensor you can touch from outside and it will capture all your records, you can save them as a graph you can take a print. It costs around Rs 5,000 in India.
