It reads glucose levels under the skin (interstitial fluid) every 1-5 minutes. It provides alarms for high and low glucose levels. It works as a Behavior Modification Device. It displays and records glucose trending information throughout the day and night. It provides glucose direction and rate of change information to help you stay within your target glucose range. These concepts will be reviewed to help you understand how to best use your CGM.
