Learn about CGM (Continuous Glucose Monitoring), what it is, and how it works

 

What is CGM?

What is CGM (Continuous Glucose Monitoring)?

Continuous Glucose Monitoring, also called CGM, uses a small medical device attached to the skin to provide 24/7 monitoring of blood sugar (blood glucose). Our Dayton-based, experienced physician prescribes a CGM sensor (Freestyle Libre) which is self-applied painlessly at home by our patients in about five minutes. The sensor then provides the user 24/7 blood glucose data readouts and smartphone app graphing of glucose trends. This extremely-safe technology has been used by diabetics for over 15 years, and is now also available to non-diabetics as part of our physician-supervised medical weight loss program.

How does CGM Work for Weight Loss?

Low carbohydrate consumption is integral to the CGM diet. The CGM device provides patient’s continuous blood glucose level feedback, resulting in informed and optimal food choice decisions. Through the use of remote monitoring tools, our practice provides patient feedback on a frequent basis, sometimes multiple times weekly if needed. This remote CGM monitoring, accompanied by physician and nutritionist guidance and program support, makes the MetabolicMD system unique in the Dayton / Cincinnati / Columbus / Indianapolis areas. (For patients residing a distance from our Dayton, Ohio and Richmond, Indiana offices, we offer private, secure, HIPAA compliant telemedicine services.)

Who will benefit from the CGM MetabolicMD Program?

People in Ohio and Indiana who expect to be successful at losing weight and/or who suffer from a wide array of medical conditions will benefit from the MetabolicMD program. This includes people who are obese, overweight, people with a high BMI, or even individuals who merely want to optimize health and wellness by losing those last 10 to 15 pounds. CGM and a medically-supervised low carb diet also helps diabetics and pre-diabetics lower blood glucose and reduce insulin resistance.

The MetabolicMD program will reduce or eliminate Metabolic Syndrome (increased blood pressure, insulin resistance, excess body fat around the waist, high cholesterol/triglyceride levels, and fatty liver disease). Our program benefits anyone who is willing to embrace a low carbohydrate diet for the purpose of shedding pounds and improving health, but who needs help and support to reach their weight loss and other health goals. Remember, by reducing blood glucose spikes and high average blood glucose numbers with a low carb diet, the body is forced to burn fat as fuel, leading to weight loss. Reductions in carbohydrate intake need not be extreme in order to reach weight loss and metabolic health goals.

Other Benefits of CGM

In the vast majority of our patients, the CGM Diet improves energy, reduces fatigue, increases mental sharpness, and optimizes wellness.

CGM reduces blood glucose variability (blood sugar spikes and plunges) to improve energy levels and reduce mental fogginess. By avoiding periods of low blood glucose, CGM improves mental clarity. CGM not only guides weight loss, but also provides the user data on blood glucose patterns to optimize energy levels, thinking processes, and even sleep patterns. By adjusting blood glucose to optimal levels, people effectively address a variety of other important health issues. If you seek to optimize health and wellness, lose weight, enhance lean body mass, reduce fatigue, improve mental sharpness and sleep better, then you will benefit greatly from a CGM diet and the MetabolicMD program.
