CGM can also be helpful for people with prediabetes, a condition where blood glucose levels are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.
CGM can help people with prediabetes to better understand how their glucose levels fluctuate throughout the day and in response to different foods and activities. This information can help them make lifestyle changes to improve their glucose control and prevent the progression to type 2 diabetes.
For example, CGM can help people with prediabetes to identify foods that cause their glucose levels to spike and make changes to their diet accordingly. CGM can also help people with prediabetes to increase their physical activity levels and monitor the impact of exercise on their glucose levels.
In addition, CGM can provide motivation for people with prediabetes to make lifestyle changes by showing them the immediate impact of these changes on their glucose levels. This can help to prevent or delay the development of type 2 diabetes and reduce the risk of long-term complications such as cardiovascular disease.
