At the Frontiers of Care: The Emerging Role of CGM in Improving Glycemic Control and Outcomes During Pregnancy
Pregnant women with diabetes often require strict glycemic control in order to reduce the possibility of both immediate and long-term maternal and fetal complications, including macrosomia, large or small for gestational age, C-section, neonatal hyperglycemia, and many more. Additional potential maternal complications, like hypoglycemia, retinopathy, ketoacidosis, and preeclampsia can also occur, often having significant consequences.
In this setting, the role of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is crucial to allow clinicians and patients to visualize and better understand the real-time variations in glucose levels and minimize the risk of these complications. During this webinar, experts review the utility of CGM during pregnancy, including its efficacy and safety, as well as practical pearls for integration to clinical care.
This activity is designed for US-based healthcare professionals, including primary care clinicians (PCPs), nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistants (PAs), endocrinologists, diabetologists, pharmacists, nurses, and other allied health professionals.
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Summarize the guidelines and recommendations for the use of CGM during pregnancy
- Interpret the latest evidence about the efficacy and safety of CGM in pregnancy
- Identify practical steps to incorporate CGM in pregnant women with diabetes in order to improve glycemic control, as well as maternal and fetal outcomes
