One in four patients (27%) abandon CGM in the first year1, and up to 39%2 do not achieve the minimum 70% wear time associated with clinical efficacy.3,4 Though the reasons are well understood, traditional CGM systems do not address patient burden and discretion — the most common barriers to CGM adherence.
Incorporate features and functionality into a CGM system that overcome or even eliminate common factors that limit adherence.
A 24-year-old Type 1 patient who was diagnosed 12 years ago, Tre works in his family’s business where he has an erratic schedule. Tre was not able to maintain consistent CGM use because of repeated issues with self-insertion and sensors falling out, and he didn’t always trust the results. Tre immediately liked the convenience of the Eversense CGM System, and its on-body alerts helped him stay on track at work, in the warehouse or in the truck. His anxiety about insertion site management disappeared and he found himself wearing his Eversense CGM over 80% of the time. After just 60 days, Tre’s estimated A1C dropped from 8.42% to 7.06%, his average glucose dropped from 195 to 156 mg/dL and his time in range increased by 48%.
