Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (CGMS) for Diabetes

The continuous glucose monitoring system (CGMS) at Penn Medicine allows patients with diabetes to get a continuous picture of their blood glucose levels through the use of ambulatory glucose monitoring devices.

Information obtained over a period of time can reveal the effect of exercise, medication, meals and everyday events on blood glucose levels. With that information, endocrinologists at the center and patients can adjust treatment regimens.
