Continuous Glucose Monitoring at Accent Endocrinology

Gainesville endocrinologists provide glucose monitoring care to better serve patients with diabetes and blood sugar disorders

Living with diabetes requires constant, vigilant care. Checking your blood sugar by pricking a finger or using an insulin pump can be a hassle. But if you don’t keep tabs on your insulin levels, you may lose energy, get jittery, or even slip into a diabetic coma.

Diabetes can also be referred to as an arbitrary disease…

No matter how regular you are about testing your insulin levels, spikes and falls in your blood sugar will happen, which is why continuous glucose monitoring may be your best option when it comes to finding specialized therapy.

Our board-certified physicians at Accent Endocrinology in Gainesville have years of experience treating patients with diabetes, thyroid disorders, osteoporosis, and more. They are highly-specialized in the field of diabetes treatment, and possess a broad mastery of endocrinology in general, providing complete care and treatment services.

Continuous glucose monitoring makes specialized therapy
and treatment possible for patients with diabetes.

Advantages of Glucose Monitoring

Blood sugar can fluctuate at any time, even while you are sleeping and unable to test it with a pump or by finger-pricking. The benefit of a Glucose Monitoring System is that it continuously tests and records blood sugar levels throughout a 72-hour period, providing a detailed analysis of insulin trends in your body—overnight lows, high levels between meals, early morning spikes, how diet and exercise effect your blood sugar—all while you continue your normal daily activities.

Setting up the Glucose Monitoring System is a simple 3 step process:

Step 1: A nurse from our clinic inserts a tiny glucose sensor under the skin around your abdomen region. The sensor measures and records your glucose levels every 5 minutes for the next three days. During the three day period, you will check your blood sugar levels 4 times per day, and record daily activities (eg. meals, exercise, insulin) on the provided log sheet.

Step 2: After the three day period, you will return to the clinic to have the glucose monitoring system removed. The data recorded by the sensor, as well as your log sheet, is then given to one of our skilled endocrinologists for review.

Step 3: The information gathered from the sensor will be evaluated by your endocrinologist. Adjustments will be made in your therapy regimen based on blood sugar trends recorded by the sensor.

NOTE: The Glucose Monitoring System is not a replacement for standard, daily insulin monitoring or long-term care, but rather a device to help detect subtleties in blood sugar so an endocrinologist can develop a treatment plan that is suitable to your needs.

Thyroid nodules and cysts are measured and detailed descriptions of their characteristics are recorded. For thyroid cancer patients, we perform a review of the surrounding lymph nodes to help determine if the cancer has spread to these lymph nodes. Our exams are performed by our thyroid specialists and endocrinologists. This allows immediate evaluation, interpretation, and discussion with the patient incorporating the patient's clinical situation.
