Apria Now Offers Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM)
What Is A Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM)?
A CGM is a compact medical system that continuously monitors your glucose levels.
You can review how your glucose changes over a few hours or days to see trends. Seeing glucose levels in real time can help you and your healthcare team make better decisions about how to balance your food, physical activity, and medicines.
How Does A CGM Work?
A CGM’s real-time glucose tracking works through insertion of a small wire under your skin that is attached to a sensor.
That sensor then gives you glucose readings every 1 to 5 minutes either automatically or when the sensor is scanned, depending on the system.
You'll only need to re-insert the small wire every 10 to 14 days. Most people describe the feeling as a small pinch.

The small round circle is the CGM sensor. For this patient's CGM, the sensor sends data to an app on her phone, so she can instantly see her blood glucose level. It also tracks her levels over a period of time so she can identify trends.
