The article discusses the pros and cons of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in the treatment of diabetes. In developing diabetes technology, a main goal is to create an artificial pancreas or closed loop system. In the 1980s, the continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) pump became commercially available in the U.S. market. One factor to consider when evaluating the advantages of using CGM is its glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1c)-lowering potency. On the cons section, the value of CGM use is limited only to the most motivated patients.
