Episode 5: CGMs (Continuous Glucose Monitors), Burg uses! Also, why varying ranges for diabetics?
Note: We have a Playlist on Youtube so can watch our podcast recordings as well, found here.
The video might be best for at least the beginning if your'e curious about applying a CGM, and removing the mystery around it. Also, Dr. B stumbles on her words (human!), and she meant to say, it stays on for 2 WEEKS, not 2 days.
Burg finally decided to wear a CGM (continuous glucose monitor) and so she puts it on her arm for the first time in this episode! Nothing to be afraid of! No pain! (I know because this is Burg writing this).
Using cash/credit/HSA/FSA, rather than insurance, can be quite affordable these days -- we discuss.
Dr. B and Burg talk about applying the CMG. Burg shares her story about why she didn't do this years ago and why she's doing it now. They talk about eating bread in Paris as well as the benefits of tracking your glucose with a CGM.
Dr. B also gets honest on docs that don't understand the power of CGMs, and why they might be afraid to prescribe for their patients.
