McKee publishes article on continuous glucose monitoring 

On December 19, Alexis M. McKee, MD, CDCES, published an article on “EndocrineWeb,” titled “Is Continuous Glucose Monitoring for You?”  The first continuous glucose monitor (CGM) came to existence in the early 2000s. The prior method of blood sugar testing at the time was fingerstick glucose reading. “By 2016, the accuracy of CGM sensors was so […]

Stitham publishes research on the atherogenic potential of mTORC1 modulators
