JDRF-funded studies show regular CGM use increases diabetes control for all age groups
Date:9/8/2009

/p>

According to one Diabetes Care paper (Factors Predictive of Use and of Benefit from CGM in Type 1 Diabetes), in the first six months of the JDRF trial, more frequent CGM use was associated with a greater reductions in HbA1c levels a finding that was present in all age groups using the devices. Successful use of the devices was defined as an average of six days or more per week.

In each age group, patients averaging at least six days per week of CGM use had substantially greater improvements in HbA1c compared with those who used the devices less often.

According to the Jaeb Center's Dr. Roy W. Beck, the initial findings published from the JDRF CGM trials in the New England Journal of Medicine in October 2008, had noted that improvements in diabetes control for participants in the trial were most significant among those in the 25 and older age group; children, teenagers and young adults saw less dramatic improvements. However, he pointed out, the findings published in Diabetes Care, looking at those same trial results in a different way, show that after adjusting for the frequency of CGM use, the association of age group with improvements in HbA1c was no longer significant in other words, participants in the trial in all age groups, from children through adults, who used CGM devices six days per week or more saw similar levels of improvement in their diabetes control. In addition, the study found that regular use of blood glucose testing prior to beginning CGM therapy was an excellent predictor of regular CGM use and thus of improvement in glucose control.

The second study published in Diabetes Care (Sustained Benefit of Continuous Glucose Monitoring on HbA1c, Glucose Profiles, and Hypoglycemia in Adults with Type 1 Diabetes) showed that CGM use had long-term impact: people who began the trial with HbA1c levels at 7% or above saw a reduction in HbA1c mainly in the first eight weeks of the stu
