Continuous glucose monitoring system is a convenient wearable device that provides glucose readings from the interstitial fluid every few minutes. Continuous glucose monitoring has revolutionized diabetes care. Patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus and type 2 diabetes mellitus, regardless of the type of treatment regimen, can benefit from continuous glucose monitoring. Continuous glucose monitoring systems provide patients with diabetes and their providers with an ambulatory glucose report that summarizes and also gives graphical representations of the glucose data. This wealth of information helps to better understand patients' glycemic patterns, and thereby reduces hemoglobin A1c and hypoglycemia.
