Abstract

The use of a Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (CGMS) allows diabetic patients to adjust their own insulin doses, food intakes and physical activities and to thus improve glycemic control. Even though we check the SMBG more than 4 times per day, we can't find a hidden abnormal blood glucose. CGMS have been devised to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of blood glucose changes using computer analysis. The objective of this report is to summarize the measurement principles, application and patient education of CGMS.
