Expert Brief #1: Daily Management of Blood Glucose Levels

Managing glycemic variability is a common challenge for people with diabetes. Tracking time in range of glycemic targets can provide useful information about acute glycemic excursions and frequency of hypo- and hyperglycemia. It can also identify the magnitude and frequency of intra- and inter-day glucose variation. Real-time continuous glucose monitoring (rtCGM) and intermittently scanned glucose […]

Managing glycemic variability is a common challenge for people with diabetes. Tracking time in range of glycemic targets can provide useful information about acute glycemic excursions and frequency of hypo- and hyperglycemia. It can also identify the magnitude and frequency of intra- and inter-day glucose variation.

Real-time continuous glucose monitoring (rtCGM) and intermittently scanned glucose monitoring (isCGM) provide frequent blood glucose values that allow patients and clinicians to understand patterns of glycemic variability. Listen to Dr. Ronald Goldenberg and Dr. Gihane Zarifa discuss the power of tracking time in range, and how rtCGM and isCGM uncover hypoglycemia/hyperglycemia and glycemic variability to reduce complications from diabetes.
