About This Series

Diabetes technology advancements in continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems over the last 20+ years have led to integrated CGM (iCGM) devices that allow communication with other technology, including software and continuous subcutaneous insulin-infusion devices (insulin pumps). This expands the ability to prevent hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia beyond an alert -- if clinicians, caregivers, and patients understand how to use the technology. To help healthcare professionals and patients make decisions regarding diabetes technology, this collection page features a series of educational activities that review available CGM devices, how to use and interpret CGM data from the ambulatory glucose profile (AGP) report, and the role of the entire diabetes multidisciplinary healthcare team. In addition, there could be a benefit to continuously and passively measure the levels of ketones in the blood through continuous ketone monitoring technology as hormone imbalances caused by diabetic ketoacidosis results in production of ketones by the liver, lowering blood pH that can, if left unchecked, cause severe organ damage or death.
