How it works
The CGM system typically consists of a small sensor that is placed under the skin, a transmitter that sends the glucose readings to a display device, such as a smartwatch or a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) display device, and an insulin pump that delivers insulin as needed.
Real time glucose readings
The device uses advanced technologies such as electrochemical sensors or optical sensors to measure glucose levels in the interstitial fluid and transmit this information to the display device. The display device provides continuous and real-time glucose readings, allowing people with diabetes to make informed decisions about their insulin doses and lifestyle habits.
valuable insights provided
In addition to providing real-time glucose readings, CGMs can also alert users when their glucose levels are going too high or too low, and can provide valuable insights into the impact of various factors such as food, exercise, and stress on glucose levels.
pair it with something to control your glucose
5-Aminolevulinic Acid (5-ALA) phosphate helps in enhancing sugar metabolism and normalizing high blood sugar levels in fasted conditions. Combining CGM and TOH DOWN may provide a comprehensive approach to managing blood glucose, allowing individuals to better understand their glucose patterns and make informed decisions to improve their glucose control.
