CGM - 2 Week Trial
WHAT IS A CGM?
Continuous Glucose Monitoring, also called CGM, uses a small medical device attached to the skin to provide 24/7 monitoring of blood sugar (blood glucose). Our experienced team of medical providers prescribe CGM sensors to our patients (Freestyle Libre) which are painlessly self-applied by them at home in about five minutes. The sensor then provides the user 24/7 blood glucose data readouts and smartphone app graphing of blood glucose trends. This extremely-safe technology has been used by diabetics for over 15 years. Metabolic MD has now made this technology available to non-diabetics as part of our physician-supervised medical weight loss program.
Low carbohydrate consumption is integral to our patients’ CGM-guided diet success. The CGM device provides patient’s continuous blood glucose level feedback, resulting in informed and optimal food choice decisions. Through the use of remote monitoring, our practice provides patient feedback on a frequent basis, sometimes multiple times weekly (if needed). Many patients find the accountability remote monitoring brings to their eating habits very helpful.
This remote CGM monitoring, accompanied by physician and nutritionist dietary guidance and program support, makes the Metabolic MD system unique in the states we serve (Ohio, Indiana, Florida, and Arizona). We offer telemedicine services to patients throughout these states via a private, secure, HIPAA compliant technology. We also provide in person visits at our office in Dayton, Ohio.

Who Will Benefit
In the vast majority of our patients, a CGM-guided low carb diet achieves not only weight loss and disease reversal, but it also improves energy, reduces fatigue, and increases mental sharpness.
Utilized in this manner, CGM technology helps to reduce blood glucose levels and blood glucose variability (blood sugar spikes and plunges). The body then burns visceral fat as its energy source. As fat is burned, weight is lost. This transition from relatively high blood glucose levels to lower stable blood glucose levels often also improve energy. This stabilization may also help to reduce mental fatigue, or “brain fog” and even sleep patterns.
So, CGM not only guides weight loss, but also helps optimize blood glucose patterns that may improve energy levels, thinking processes, and even sleep patterns. By adjusting blood glucose to optimal levels, our patients often also effectively address a variety of other important health issues. This may include reversing prediabetes, reducing cholesterol, and lowering blood pressure. We frequently help our patients reverse common metabolic health conditions like gastric reflux (GERD), sleep apnea, and fatty liver disease. We even help patients reduce medication dosages, or even eliminate the need for some medications completely. If you seek to optimize health and wellness, lose weight, reduce fatigue, improve mental sharpness and sleep better, then you will benefit greatly from a CGM diet and the Metabolic MD program.
