Self-monitoring of blood glucose provides an incomplete picture of glucose control.1
Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) can give a more comprehensive picture of glycaemic variability (GV) and time spent in range (TIR).2
There are few studies examining the relationship between GV or TIR and chronic complications.
How was this study conducted?
Parameters that could have a link with diabetes complications were analysed in 515 adults with type 1 diabetes (T1D) who entered the Belgian reimbursement system in terms of real-time CGM, HbA1c, standard deviation (SD), coefficient of variation, TIR (70-180 mg/dL), age, duration of diabetes, BMI and gender.
Association between glucometrics from the first 2 weeks of CGM use and presence of diabetes complications were investigated with multiple logistic regression.
