NOW OFFERING TELEHEALTH APPOINTMENTS
Portland Diabetes and Endocrinology Center
PDEC providers are unmatched when it comes to experience in assisting patients utilizing the latest in diabetes technology!
It hasn’t been that long since insulin injections were the only way to treat patients with diabetes. Over the past several years technology has advanced to include not only oral and injectable medications but also devices to assist patients in monitoring their blood sugar levels.
Continuous Glucose Monitoring Systems (CGMS) & Insulin Pumps
Continuous Glucose Monitoring devices worn by patients do just as the name describes – continually monitor blood glucose levels! Insulin pumps help eliminate the need for multiple daily injections and simplify the delivery of medications. All PDEC providers are well versed in many brands of insulin pumps available on the market today as well as supporting several CGMS options including Dexcom, Guardian, Libre and the new Eversense implanted CGMS system. Utilizing one of these devices along with an insulin pump has revolutionized the way patients manage their diabetes.
