Introduction to Glucose Sensor Equilibration

Soon after the glucose sensor is inserted, physiological processes occur as the glucose sensor and the body equilibrates. These processes are part of the body’s natural response to glucose sensor insertion.

Why equilibration affects sensor accuracy

The equilibration process can vary from one person to another and may not always happen in the same manner for any one person. During this equilibration process, the sensor values are inaccurate; hence we don’t show them on the app.

Note: Your CGM sensor will be in a calibration phase for the first 24 hours.

When to expect accurate readings

Once the equilibration process is complete and the glucose sensor starts reporting values in the correct range (40 – 500 mg/dL), you can see the values in the app.
