A Continuous Glucose Monitoring Sensor (CGMS) is a holter-style sensor system that automatically records glucose levels every five minutes. How? A small sensor is placed just under the skin and is connected with a cable to a pager-sized monitor. The sensor and monitor are worn for three to six days. When the sensor is removed, the information is downloaded onto a computer in our offices for review. A clinical report will be sent to your primary care provider, allowing him or her to identify patterns of glucose excursions above or below the desired range. This information will help make decisions regarding adjustments to your diabetes therapy to minimize glucose swings, and readings outside of your target range.

Everyone's body is unique and requires a different level of caloric intake. With our KORR Revue metabolic testing system, we can determine what your body burns in order to maintain, lose or gain weight. Metabolic testing evaluates how many calories you burn in a resting state. It calculates how many calories you should eat to lose or maintain your weight and determines if your metabolism is fast or slow. This service is often covered by insurance with a physician referral.
