Results are provided in real time on the monitor and at the end of the monitoring period (3-7 days). The test data is uploaded and shared with your health care provider for analysis. The sheer volume of information can really help your doctor formulate a successful treatment plan to work with you as an individual.

Advantages of CGM.
There are a number of advantages and benefits from doing CGM. Primarily, our blood sugar levels are not necessarily consistent or predictable.
Finger stick testing, even if done regularly, only provides the briefest of snapshots regarding your glucose levels. Imagine if you had to do a finger test every minute, or even every 5 minutes! You simply could not do this effectively.
Finger stick testing alone may miss wide fluctuations in your glucose levels, particularly when you are sleeping.
In fact, some studies have found that optimal glucose control using traditional monitoring methods is less than 30 percent.
Some Key Benefits, Advantage and Reasons to CGM:
  •  Worried about Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) (Particularly at night).
  • Use Insulin to manage diabetes.
  • Experience fluctuating glucose levels.
  • Want to achieve better understanding and control over your diabetes.
Are Their Disadvantages to performing Continuous Glucose Monitoring?
CGM may not be right for everyone. The meters are rather expensive ranging from approximately RS 50000 and up. If you are not experiencing poor diabetes control, then this system or monitor may not be worth the extra price. Nonetheless, it is worth a conversation with your healthcare provider to determine your ultimate course of action and treatment.
We use CGM in indicated patients to manage their diabetes in a better way. We provide it at a reasonable cost, also with thorough counselling and support staff.
