Abstract

p PRACTICE PEARL A Rock-Solid Case for Continuous Glucose Monitors VINCENT EKENGA, PHARMD, BCACP, CDCES I recently encountered a person living with hypoglycemia. This fi nding was only discovered diabetes that has cemented the usefulness of because of the CGM; in the absence of frequent continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) for me. He testing throughout the night, a traditional was an elderly, thin man with a lengthy history of glucose meter would have only displayed fasting type 2 diabetes and frequent hypoglycemia. He hyperglycemia upon waking. The traditional also had a hand tremor that, combined with the evidence could have resulted in a diff erent clinical hypoglycemia and intensive insulin therapy, made decision (increase nighttime insulin) versus a checking his blood sugar multiple times per day better decision (decrease nighttime insulin and almost untenable. examine daytime insulin).
