Developing Interactive Learning for Continuous Glucose Monitoring

Christina Lorenzo, Christine Young, Rasa Kazlauskaite


This research project investigates the development of an
interactive visual learning tool for patients utilizing
continuous glucose monitoring. A beta product of this
interactive learning tool was developed to run real-life
scenarios that visualize how meal choices and medication
affect glucose trajectories in both healthy patients and
patients with type 2 diabetes. This learning tool is
intended to be used by the clinician to engage the
patient in an educational discussion about continuous
glucose monitoring. The tool may enhance a patient’s
understanding of graphic glucose trajectories so that they
may discover how their body reacts to different lifestyle
choices and learn to make better real-time decisions with
their own CGM data. The effectiveness of this beta
product was evaluated by 17 health professionals.
