What does a continuous glucose monitoring system consist of?

ANSWER

Some glucose meters are combined with insulin pumps. They're not as accurate as finger-stick glucose results, but they can help you find patterns and trends in your sugar levels. You may also hear doctors refer to them as “interstitial glucose measuring devices.”
