Great news in the diabetes world today! FDA has approved Dexcom’s G6 Pro CGM. Now you may be wondering what is a pro (professional) CGM? Isn’t all CGMs the same? Professional CGM is placed on a person with diabetes by a healthcare professional in office or clinic setting. CGM is worn for typically 7 – 14 days followed by download in your healthcare provider’s office. CGM download provides lots of useful information in terms of a person’s time in range (amount of time a person’s blood sugar is in 70 – 180 mg/dL range), above range (> 180 mg/dL) and below range (<70 mg/dL). This vital insight can be provide feedback to both person with diabetes and healthcare professional to guide the overall treatment plan, and learn what is working and not working.
