Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) Glossary

Trying to learn about continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) but starting from scratch? Learning some of the key terms used by healthcare professionals to describe and educate on CGMs will help.

Glucose Management Indicator

Jul 27, 2022, 21:05
Glucose management indicator (GMI) approximates the laboratory A1C level expected based on average glucose measured using continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) values. The average glucose is most accurate when based on 14 days of CGM data. Differences between GMI and laboratory A1C may reflect differences among an individual’s red blood cell lifespan, how glucose binds to hemoglobin, or due to a recent fluctuation in glucose control.
