Reduce Your Type 2 Diabetes Risk

What is Prediabetes?

Almost 6 million Canadians have prediabetes, and many of them don’t know that they have it. Prediabetes refers to blood sugar levels that are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as type 2 diabetes. If left unmanaged, prediabetes can develop into type 2 diabetes – but there are multiple ways to prevent this and change your future. Know your risks - see your pharmacist for a personalized risk assessment.

Continuous Glucose Monitoring Devices

Continuous glucose monitors (CGM) are valuable tools to assist people with diabetes manage their disease. These devices give present and past glucose levels and predict where glucose levels are likely to go without having to prick your fingers.

There are two types of CGMs: intermittently scanned (isCGM) and real time (rtCGM). Both types use a sensor worn on the body and a hand-held device (a reader or a smartphone with an app) to read glucose levels. isCGM require the user to place a reader or smartphone close to the sensor to capture glucose data, while rtCGM uses blue tooth technology to continuously send data to the reader or smartphone without user action.

All CGM devices can be programmed to alert users to glucose levels that are too high or too low, making it possible to avoid severe high or low blood sugars. CGM technology offers users other benefits. The time that glucose levels remain in a specified target range is tracked by the CGM reader. This makes it possible to make informed decisions about treatment. If you are considering CGM, it is important to talk to your pharmacist to see if it is right for you.
