In the video, Aaron Neinstein discusses the potential of continuous glucose monitors (CGM) for improving diabetes care. He provides a brief overview of CGM technology and its applications in diabetes care, and discusses the potential for CGM to revolutionize diabetes care. He also notes some challenges associated with CGM, such as alert fatigue, and suggests that CGM could be used in other medical fields.

  • 00:00:00 In this talk, Aaron Neinstein discusses the potential of continuous glucose monitors (CGM) for improving diabetes care. He notes that while CGM has recently entered the public consciousness, there are still some concerns about its acceptance among physicians. He provides a brief overview of CGM technology and its applications in diabetes care. He concludes with a discussion of the potential CGM revolutionizes diabetes care and the need for further research in this area.
  • 00:05:00 This patient's A1C decreased from eight and a half to seven and a half percent after using a continuous glucose monitor for 14 days. This decreased his risk of severe hypoglycemia and helped him make a change in his medication regimen.
  • 00:10:00 Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is a technology that has revolutionized the management of diabetes by reducing the frequency and severity of hypoglycemia, improving diabetes control and quality of life, and facilitating the use of closed-loop insulin delivery. Disparities in CGM use across states and demographic groups remain a significant challenge, but CGM is rapidly becoming the standard of care for people with diabetes.
  • 00:15:00 The video discusses a study which found that CGM was more effective than finger sticks at reducing A1C levels in people with type 2 diabetes not on insulin. The study also found that CGM is more effective for people with type 2 diabetes who do not have a college degree and are in primary care.
  • 00:20:00 Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is a technology that allows doctors to see how a person's blood sugar is progressing over time, and it is being used to help people with diabetes manage their disease. There is evidence that CGM may be helpful for people who are not on insulin, and further research is needed to determine if it is actually helpful for people with type 2 diabetes.
  • 00:25:00 The video discusses how continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is revolutionizing diabetes care by moving away from a traditional model where our expensive doctors, nurses, and physical clinics are more the exception than the rule, and instead focusing on more targeted, consumer-oriented interventions. Onduo, a company that has reported success with CGM-based interventions, reported that, in terms of A1C reductions, 95% of people with diabetes had reductions, with the majority of these reductions occurring in people without diabetes who were following a diabetes prevention program. There is some concern that this trend will lead to a slippery slope where people without diabetes are automatically considered to be in good health, even if their A1C levels are slightly elevated.
  • 00:30:00 The video discusses the revolution in continuous glucose monitoring for diabetes, which has led to a shift in the way diabetes is treated. The video discusses how this shift is based on the idea that treatment confers a greater benefit than harm based on where a person is on their risk for progression to diabetes complications. The video then goes on to discuss how this idea has been supported by recent studies that show that people with type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes have different glucose patterns than people without diabetes, and that these patterns are better characterized by using machine learning. The video ends with a discussion of how CGM could potentially enable more personalized diabetes prevention programs.
  • 00:35:00 The video discusses the potential benefits of using continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) for diabetes care. The author suggests that CGM could revolutionize diabetes care by improving the quality of life for people with diabetes, helping those without diabetes to better understand their glucose levels, and helping to create a more personalized treatment plan. The author also suggests that the diabetes community move beyond simply discussing CGM and explore its potential applications in other medical fields.
  • 00:40:00 Aaron explains that continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) can help individuals with diabetes control their blood sugar better, and that it is not fully autonomous. He goes on to say that some hardware challenges and the need to estimate carbohydrates in current systems remain obstacles to making CGM a single device.
  • 00:45:00 Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is a type of sensor that continuously monitors a person's blood sugar levels. This can be helpful for people with diabetes or for people who are not diabetic, as it can help to manage blood sugar levels. Coverage for CGM is becoming more widespread, but there are still some caveats to using it. CGM can also be helpful for people with cognitive impairment or pregnant women.
  • 00:50:00 The video discusses the Revolution in Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) for diabetes, which is a new and innovative way to monitor blood sugar levels. CGM is being increasingly used in clinics across the country, but there are some challenges associated with its use, such as staff fatigue and the need for data interpretation and machine learning. It is likely that we will see more clinics contract with companies that provide CGM and AI, which will handle the majority of diabetes management tasks.
  • 00:55:00 The speaker notes that alert fatigue can happen with continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems, as patients get "alert and alarm fatigue" from the system alarming all the time. He goes on to say that there are opportunities for continuous glucose monitoring to be used in a variety of other ways, including in lung disease, asthma, and COPD. He also notes that heart rate may be a valuable tool in diagnosing thyroid disease.
