Continuous Glucose Monitoring & Nutrition in Columbus, OH

Optimize Your Nutritional Health with Glucose Monitoring

You have probably seen the device before: blood glucose monitors (CGMs) are the devices that people with diabetes use to measure and regulate glucose levels in their bloodstream. At Endocrinology Associates, we help you use your glucose data, both real-time and predictive, to establish better, safer routines — and provide you with reliable nutritional options to help in case your levels are off.

How Are Glucose Monitoring and Nutrition Linked?

Glucose monitoring is a way to record and track your past and present glucose levels, and that data can also be used to make future predictions. To an experienced endocrinologist like Dr. Christofides, the information your CGM provides can be used more to adjust sugar intake; the data can be combined with other tests and dietary information to construct a more holistic approach that keeps you healthier, safer, and provides a better quality of life.

The Benefits of Continuous Glucose Monitoring

Improvements in monitoring technology have made CGMs more accurate, and the days when a person had to prick their finger and draw blood several times a day are over — now CGM data can be followed in real time using a cell phone app. The results are all-encompassing: a person with diabetes can much more easily avoid hypo- and hyperglycemia, better plan meals, and take great control over their own lives.
