Continuous Glucose Monitoring at Accent Endocrinology
Living with diabetes requires constant vigilant care. Checking your blood sugar by pricking a finger or using a continuous glucose sensor can be a hassle. But if you don’t keep tabs on your blood sugar level you may lose energy, get jittery or even slip into a diabetic coma.
No matter how regular you are about testing your blood sugar levels, spikes and falls in your blood sugar will happen, which is why continuous glucose monitoring may be your best option when it comes to finding specialized therapy.
Advantages of Glucose Monitoring
Blood sugar can fluctuate at any time, even while you are sleeping and unable to test it with a pump or by finger-pricking. The benefit of a Glucose Monitoring System is that it continuously tests and records blood sugar levels, providing a detailed analysis of blood sugar trends in your body—overnight lows, high levels between meals, early morning spikes, how diet and exercise effect your blood sugar—all while you continue your normal daily activities.
