Use Your AGP Report to Increase Your Time in Range: Three Examples and Success Stories from People and their Care Teams

By Matthew Garza

Dive into AGP if you haven’t already! In our third video on understanding your ambulatory glucose profile (AGP) report, Dr. Carlson from the International Diabetes Center uses real-world examples to discuss how to use the information from your AGP report to inform your diabetes care 

The data that people get from a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) is immensely helpful for diabetes management, but the large amount of data can also feel overwhelming. How can you use all of that information to help you manage your diabetes? The International Diabetes Center’s Ambulatory Glucose Profile (AGP) report is a standardized, single-page report included in your CGM software that is based on your last 14 days of data. It shows key measurements – including your Time in Range (TIR), summary glucose profile, and daily glucose graphs – that can be used to assess your diabetes management and outcomes. diaTribe is hosting a series of videos to help you navigate and understand your AGP report so that you can find strategies to keep your glucose levels in range. 

In this video, Dr. Anders Carlson shares real-world AGP reports from people with diabetes. He discusses how each person’s care team used the information to make adjustments that led to an AGP report that was flat, narrow, and in range (FNIR). To learn more, watch Dr. Rich Bergenstal’s first video on what an AGP report includes and how to optimize your CGM data, and watch his second video on how to use information from your AGP report to improve your TIR.
