Troy’s Journey with Eversense CGM

Troy’s narrative in the film captures the evolution of his diabetes management journey and the profound impact of Eversense, the pioneering long-term CGM system.

Dr. Rakesh Patel, Troy’s endocrinologist, sheds light on the transformation witnessed in Troy’s diabetes care. “When Troy first came in to be treated, we used a regular glucometer before progressing onto a short-term continuous glucose monitoring system,

” Dr. Patel told the audience in the film. “He had some grievances with the short-term sensors – mainly because they tend to fall off regularly and come with the burden of replacing the sensor every 10 to 14 days.”

Empowering Lives through Long-term CGM

Troy highlights the pivotal change brought about by the long-term continuous glucose monitor. Due to the fact that I am required to drive for my profession on a regular basis, managing my diabetes has become quite difficult for me.

“The long-term continuous glucose monitor was a game-changer for me,” he said in the movie. “I can now monitor my glucose levels for an extended period of time.”

Elaine Anderson, VP of Global CGM and Commercial Operations at Ascensia Diabetes Care, expressed pride in bringing the benefits of long-term CGM systems to individuals with diabetes.
