Digital therapeutics is an emerging class of therapies that utilizes technology and software to treat disease, both as a standalone or for treatment optimization. Diabetes is one such disease state that can be managed from the advent of digital devices including continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems. CGMs automatically track blood glucose levels and translate the data for current and historical trends and allow the patient and care team to modify treatment and behavioral decisions. As digital health devices are becoming more common, this podcast will ensure you are equipped to answer questions about glycemic management and make the best recommendation for your patients.
