An iPro®2 professional continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) evaluation will record your glucose levels and will give your healthcare provider insights into how your diet, medication, and daily activities really affect your glucose levels.
iPro®2 professional CGM evaluation is a small, lightweight and watertight continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) device that takes a glucose reading every five minutes.
Wear it for a few days for a more complete picture of your glucose levels.
J.D. was put on an iPro®2 professional CGM evaluation to evaluate his glucose variability. Based on the results of his evaluation his doctor prescribed a long-acting insulin.
J.D. had always been told he had pre-diabetes. “As a busy police officer,” he said, “it’s just easier to eat fast food. I don’t know when the next meal will be.”
Once he and his doctor reviewed his iPro®2 professional CGM evaluation, J.D. quickly saw how high his sensor glucose really was and he decided to make some changes.
About three months later his doctor put him on iPro®2 professional CGM evaluation for a follow-up evaluation.
Since J.D. had cut back on second servings and pretty much stopped eating fast food, they saw a real improvement in his glucose variability.
His doctor was able to discontinue his insulin and J.D. no longer takes oral medications for his diabetes.
