What is Continuous Glucose Monitoring System for Diabetes?

Q:

What is continuous glucose monitoring system for diabetes?

A:

A continuous glucose monitoring system is also called interstitial glucose monitoring devices. If you choose this system, a little sensor is inserted under your skin to check your glucose levels every 5 minutes and it sends data to the receiver.

Despite the continuous glucose monitoring system, you still need to test your sugar levels throughout the day because the system is not as accurate as finger-stick glucose test. It helps your doctor to know more about the patterns and trends of your sugar levels.
