We Now Supply Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGM)
CHC Solutions, Inc. now supplies continuous glucose monitoring systems (CGMs) to those with qualifying insurances.
A CGM tracks glucose levels 24/7. Then, this data helps the user and their medical provider make treatment decisions, including how to better manage eating, exercise and medication. Learn more about the benefits of using a CGM.
What Is A CGM?
A CGM system works through a tiny sensor inserted under the skin, usually on the belly or arm. The sensor measures the interstitial glucose level (glucose found in the fluid between the cells). It tests glucose every few minutes, and the transmitter sends the information to a monitor. CHC Solutions can supply the Dexcom G6, Abbott FreeStyle Libre 14 day and the Abbott FreeStyle Libre 2.
Benefits of Using A CGM
- Firstly, CGM systems provide helpful information – CGM systems allow individuals with diabetes to easily track blood glucose levels and trends.
- Secondly, the systems provide updates on changing glucose levels – Having a continuous update of glucose levels allows one to quickly check their blood sugar. This is helpful in situations when levels may change rapidly, such as during exercise or after taking a dose of insulin to correct a high glucose reading.
- Lastly, CGM systems eliminate or reduce the need for fingersticks – You may need fingersticks when symptoms do not match system readings, a check blood glucose symbol appears or if you experience symptoms that may be due to high or low blood glucose. However, CGMs greatly reduce the overall need and amount of fingersticks.
Finally, always follow product manufacturer instructions on use and maintenance of your specific CGM system and consult your physician for individualized guidance.
