Patient Readiness for Use of Continuous Glucose Monitoring

Is your patient with diabetes ready to utilize continuous glucose monitoring technology? Welsh notes, in his June 2018 Diabetes Technology & Therapeutics19 article, “Role of Continuous Glucose Monitoring in Insulin-Requiring Patients with Diabetes,” that it is important to set realistic expectations of CGM use to help avoid frustrations and disappointment. “CGM use should not be imposed on those who are unwilling to use it consistently or incapable of using it beneficially.” Comprehensive training on the device is important, both initially and ongoing, and will lead to the long-term success of the individual with the CGM20. One strategy to assist the person with diabetes who is feeling uncertain if personal CGM is right for them would be to offer a short-term trial with professional CGM.21
