Unlike a single reading from a blood glucose meter, rt-CGM provides dynamic information about the direction of glucose change, giving your patient continuous and timely feedback on nutrition, activity, and insulin requirements to help make informed diabetes treatment decisions. CGM is a powerful therapy management tool that can inform better diabetes treatment decisions, ultimately leading to tighter glycaemic control, than using a blood glucose meter alone.1
