Ambulatory Glucose Profile and Time in Range: Essential Tools to Manage Your Patient with Diabetes
Recorded April 16, 2021
Treatment of patients with diabetes is a balance between good glycemic control and the risk of hypoglycemia. Fluctuations in the blood glucose level are common but are often missed with fingerstick blood glucose monitoring. This limitation can be overcome with continuous glucose monitoring systems, however challenges interpreting the large amount of data provided by CGM systems have limited their clinical application. This session will explore the recent guidelines on CGM which should simplify its use in clinical practice with the benefit of reducing fluctuations in the blood glucose level.
- Identify patients who are better candidates for continuous glucose monitoring versus fingerstick blood glucose monitoring.
- List the types of information provided by continuous glucose monitoring systems.
- Interpret CGM data using the AGP to assess if the patient is achieving targets established by the International Consensus on Time in Range.
- Modify the treatment plan based on CGM data to improve patient outcomes.
