For this reason, it’s critical to stay informed on the advancements in technology designed to improve the ability to manage glucose levels.<br /> <br /> Being called the most important breakthrough in diabetes since the discovery of insulin, Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGMs), which give a more complete and dynamic picture than traditional blood glucose meters, have the ability to monitor blood glucose levels during waking and sleeping hours, setting off customizable alarms when glucose levels are getting dangerously low or high.<br /> <br /> The past few years have seen significant advancements for CGMs and they have begun to reach mainstream acceptance as a tool to better manage diabetes.
