Continuous glucose monitoring
A CGM device includes a tiny implantable (transdermal) sensor that automatically tracks blood glucose throughout day and night. This sensor inserted under the skin is used to detect and quantify blood glucose levels by continuously (every few minutes) measuring glucose in interstitial fluid (a fluid surrounding tissue cell).
Why Continuous Glucose Monitoring?
Insulin may be administered to a diabetic patient to help regulate blood glucose levels; therefore, blood glucose levels must be carefully monitored to help ensure that timing and dosage are appropriate.
Blood glucose levels must be carefully monitored to help ensure that insulin timing and dosage are appropriate for Diabetes patients.
The current process fail to detect or capture the events of high or low sugar levels in a timely manner.
Reduced number of pricks
Less Hygolycemic events and emergencies
Capture events in timely manner
Advantages of a CGM
*Compared to standard blood glucose meters
Portable Insulin Pump
An insulin pump is a small device that gives small, steady doses of insulin throughout the day. The insulin pump connects to a small plastic tube and a very small needle. The needle is inserted under the skin, and it stays in place for several days. It then pumps small doses of insulin from the device through the tube into the body 24 hours a day (basal dose). Also, patients can manually pump the doses during or after mealtimes (bolus dose).
Timely administration of insulin is life-critical for Diabetes patients
Insulin for Diabetes Patients
Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood glucose, it must be taken by individuals with type 1 diabetes (T1D) to maintain their blood glucose levels. If insulin was not given on time, it may lead to life-threatening events, sometimes death, especially in T1D. People with T2D produce insulin but their body does not utilize it in managing glucose level or does not produce enough
