Continuous Glucose Monitoring System
Hye Jin Yoo
Continuous glucose monitoring system (CGMS) represents the third era of diabetes management. This technology, which allows patients to view a direction and rate of blood glucose change every 5 minutes, permits fine tuning of a patient`s glycemic control that is not possible with self monitoring of blood glucose. The continuous availability of glucose measurements permitted the patients to adjust their own insulin doses, food intake and physical activity and thus improve their glycemic control. Furthermore, it helps to assess the glycemic excursion, which is known to be related with diabetic complications and to detect unrecognized hypoglycemia especially during sleep. However, because CGMS device is still early in its development, some practical aspects of its use must be considered before recommending CGMS to every patient with diabetes. In this report, we summarize the mechanism and limitation of the current CGMS device and the available data about the clinical utility of this novel glucose monitoring system.
