How Much Is a CGM?

Whether your goal is weight loss, enhanced athletic performance, or understanding your blood sugar to prevent conditions like prediabetes and diabetes, a CGM can help you biohack your way to better health.

But, these sensors can be costly, and CGM device prices often differ depending on the provider and length of your plan. That's why you should pick one through a program that gives you real value (like Nutrisense, where you can choose to work 1:1 with a nutritionist to truly understand and make the most of the insights from your CGM data). Programs like this vary in price, and typically include a shipment of a few CGMs every month through the duration of your subscription, depending on your sensor and plan choice.

Regardless of your provider, the most affordable, cheapest CGM sensors typically require a long-term commitment of up to 12 months.

No matter what plan you choose, navigating the data provided by your CGM and making the most out of your plan can seem overwhelming at first. That’s why it’s important that you have guidance and support from an expert through your journey.
