Glucose Monitoring Considerations and Recommendations (Diabetes Simplified - Practical Recommendations to Improve Diabetes Care)
The monitoring of patients with diabetes has continually evolved with changing technologies. Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is becoming an increasingly accessible option for patients to improve glycemic control. Ambulatory glucose profiles, time-in-range and glycemic variability are new measures that can enhance control above a patient’s A1C measurement.
