Virtual Symposium: CGM - Going Beyond HbA1c to Optimize and Individualize T2D Management

Measuring HbA1c has been the method of choice to assess glucose control; however, it does not reflect potential glucose excursions leading to hypoglycemia or postprandial hyperglycemia, which increase the risk of long-term complications, as well as overall glycemic variability. Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) technology can circumvent some of these issues in T2DM management by providing near real-time glucose concentrations derived from interstitial fluid; and studies with CGM have demonstrated its efficacy and safety in this setting. This session is going to overview the guidelines for the use of CGM in T2DM, as well as important data and clinical considerations.

Target Audience

The educational design of this activity addresses the needs of US-based healthcare professionals, including cardiologists, endocrinologists, lipidologists, primary care clinicians (PCPs), registered nurses, advanced practice registered nurses, dieticians, pharmacists, and other allied health professionals involved in the management and treatment of cardiometabolic patients.

Learning Objectives

After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Summarize the guidelines and evidence for the appropriate use of CGM in patients with type 2 diabetes.
  • Explain ambulatory blood glucose profile (AGP) data and other important CGM metrics in patients with type 2 diabetes.
  • List new and emerging CGM technologies and their associated clinical features.
  • Incorporate the use of CGM when appropriate to individualize therapy in patients with type 2 diabetes.
