Health Tip: Continuous Glucose Monitoring Devices

(HealthDay News) -- Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) devices constantly track your blood sugar levels to help you manage diabetes.

The Cleveland Clinic says potential benefits of a CGM device include:

  • Real-time updates of your blood glucose (sugar) level.
  • An alarm that alerts you when your blood glucose is too high or too low.
  • The ability to export blood glucose readings to a computer, providing a record for your doctor.
