FDA Panel Votes to Allow Patients to Use CGM to Make Treatment Decisions

GDI Chairman and AACE Immediate Past President Dr. George Grunberger participated on an advisory panel that voted 8-2 to allow patients to use Dexcom’s G5 CGM data for making treatment decisions without a finger stick verification.

The panel’s recommendation will now be considered by the FDA, which, if accepted, will potentially lead to Medicare coverage of the device.

P.S. FDA did decide on December 20, 2016 to approve the use of a continuous glucose monitoring system to replace finger-stick testing for determining insulin doses.
