For all my patients who are on hypoglycemic medications, oral or injectable, I suggest using rtCGM or isCGM. Even intermittent use or a short trial of 10 days to two weeks with either of these devices can be enlightening for patients. With the ongoing COVID restrictions, many of my patients have been unable (or unwilling) to obtain an A1C from a lab test. In my practice, I have found it helpful to use glucose TIR to assess glucose control as an adjunct measure to A1C results; when an A1C is not available; and to guide treatment recommendations.
