The Diabetes Education Center of the Midlands will host their 2017 Insulin Pump & Continous Glucose Monitor (CGM) Fair, where insulin pump and CGM specialists can help you decide if pump therapy is right for you and help take the fear out of using an insulin pump.
Certified Diabetes Educators will provide insulin pump training on all major insulin pumps. In collaboration with healthcare providers, educators can also help pumpers improve their control by helping them fine-tune pump settings and problem solve fluctuations in blood glucose as well as other pump and infusion site issues.
In addition to pump therapy, educators can also teach you how to use a continuous glucose monitor (CGM). The CGM reads out blood glucose data every 1 to 5 minutes and shows whether an individual’s glucose is rising or falling. Combining CGM with pump therapy, educators can provide a method to monitor and manage your blood glucose levels.
