Real-time continuous glucose monitoring (RT-CGM) provides new dimension to diabetes management. However, there are many challenges to using RT-CGM successfully. This article aims to present how RT-CGM is integrated into diabetes clinical practice at the Yale Children's Diabetes Program (YCDP). The authors provide factors to consider when choosing one of the commercially available RT-CGM systems and a discussion of key strategies for successful use of RT-CGM for families. Careful training and troubleshooting strategies will ensure the most positive experience possible for a family using RT-CGM.
