Have you ever wondered why your blood glucose patterns are too high, too low and often never right no matter what insulin?

A continuous glucose monitoring system (CGMS ) takes home blood glucose monitoring to the next step. Modern continuous glucose monitoring systems consist of a small electrode inserted beneath the skin (like an insulin pump catheter), which will sense the glucose level as an electrical signal and send the information to a transmitter stuck on the skin surface.. This transmitter can then relay the information about blood glucose levels in real time to a receiver, so that the patient can react to this information, or it can store the information for 3 days, for later download and analysis

Analysis of blood glucose patterns whether by CGMS or a series of fingersticks over a few days or weeks, will often shed light on troublesome blood glucose patterns . Sometimes people who think they need more insulin may actually do better with less insulin at certain times.

CGMS studies are useful for both adults with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and children and adults with Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus. CGMS studies can help the patient and the doctor to fine tune insulin and oral medicaitions. T

CGMS studies are also indicated for those in whom the HbA1c is low, because they are at risk of hypoglycemic events

Insulin Pumps

Dr Lee is a pioneer in the use of insulin pumps in Singapore, having initiated insulin pumps in paediatric patients since they were first introduced into Singapore in 1998 ( ? check Medtronic records ) and has initiated insulin pumps in babies a year old and onward,up to women with Type 1 diabetes wanting to start a family and achieving better control and helped many patients with very active lifestyles and intensive sports training to use insulin pumps to live life to the full.

Having many years of experience in initiating pumps and having a high total number of pumps started / doctor and a high number of pump starts / clinic / per yr in Singapore, Dr Lee is able help with smooth and fuss free pump initiation,usually as an outpatient or if required, as an inpatient, and also with post initiation trouble shooting in a wide range of clinical situations.

FOR T1DM / T2DM DIABETIC PATIENTS

Continuous glucose measurement system ( CGMS )

 

Continuous glucose measurement system ( CGMS ) devices measure glucose levels in interstitial fluid ( the liquid between cells) and outside the blood vessels. Finger prick glucose meters measure the glucose levels in whole blood which is obtained from a finger prick. The blood from a finger prick sample is from capillaries and is a mix of arterial and venous blood and may show lower levels of glucose because some glucose may have already been used up by the tissues as the blood passes through the capillary netwok in the tissues.

CGMS devices typically are used by T1DM, but some T2DM ptients use it too .
