A true story
Six years ago a successful and very well known business person attended GPSI Diabetes. He had just been to see his GP and had been told that his diabetes was "not doing well". He was a busy man - meetings to run, dinners to attend, networking a high priority. Diabetes just seemed to get in the way. He took his medication as instructed and attended doctors appointments - which seemed to be occuring with increasing frequency - but the outcome was always the same. His diabetes "was not doing well"
After 4 visits with GPSI Diabetes, he has never looked back. Empowered with the skills to monitor his own diabetes and with the knowledge of how to escalate his own medical management, this gentleman has his diabetes under excellent control with no change in his busy schedule of work, meetings, and regular dinners.

Continuous Glucose Monitoring Systems
Continuous Glucose Monitoring Systems (CGMS) can be used with or without an insulin pump. They are worn 24 hours a day, automatically checking blood sugars at regular and frequent intervals and relaying the information to a monitor - or to the screen on the insulin pump. It has the benefit of being able to alarm the wearer (or parent) of high or low blood sugars.
