Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (CGMS)

The CGMS system is designed to monitor blood glucose levels. A flexible plastic sensor inserted under the skin measures and records an average blood glucose value every five minutes for up to 72 hours. The information from the sensor is then downloaded to a computer and detailed graphic reports can be printed. A physician will review the data with your diabetes educator and make recommendations for changes in your diabetes plan, if necessary.
