Making sense of glucose sensors in primary care
Dr. Alice Cheng

Description

Fingerstick glucose monitoring captures a moment in time. Real-time continuous glucose monitoring (rtCGM) with alerts provides a more complete picture of glucose to guide behavior modification and prevent hypoglycemia. Using case examples, Dr. Cheng will share principles for interpreting glucose sensor reports, adjusting therapy, and tips for getting started with glucose sensors in primary care.

Alert! Time in range workshop: Test your skills in adjusting rtCGM alerts
Dr. Jeremy Gilbert

Description

Real-time continuous glucose monitoring (rtCGM) alerts can be a powerful diabetes self- management tool. Alerts can also be annoying and add to the diabetes burden. This session will focus on developing clinician skill and practice in assessing and discussing how alerts settings are individualized. Dr. Gilbert will share case examples to highlight where a change in alert settings can reduce diabetes burden, while improving safety and time in range.

New Tech and Older Patients: Can they adapt? Is it worth it?
Dr. Richard E. Pratley

Description

An aging population and better long-term diabetes treatment options mean more people with diabetes are living longer. Seniors with a long duration of diabetes are at high risk for hypoglycemia and hypoglycemia unawareness. Is real-time continuous glucose monitoring (rtCGM) a realistic option? Dr. Pratley will review the WISDM trial and share case examples to highlight the benefits and barriers to rtCGM use in older people with diabetes.
