Abbott Labs Freestyle Libre Continuous Glucose Monitor

Hyperglycemia and insulin resistance are two of the most detrimental impacts on our blood vessels. At Van Zant Medical Group, S.C. we use the FreeStyle Libre Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) to help identify blood sugar trends throughout the day, as well as specifically discover what foods support stable blood sugar in our patients, and which ones don’t.
We offer two options:
– with specific diagnoses, the CGM is covered by insurance, and patients can receive their own CGM to monitor their blood sugar throughout the day.
– for Medicare patients, or patients who are part of cost sharing programs, we provide rental of a two week CGM monitor at a nominal cost.
