Study shows CGM devices also benefit people with type 1 diabetes
Date:5/27/2009

ington, and Yale University, and coordinated by the Jaeb Center for Health Research in Tampa, Florida. Participants all had good diabetes control when they enrolled in the trial, and were randomly assigned to either a group that used CGM devices or one using standard finger-stick glucose testing for 26 weeks.

"The research suggests that CGM devices helped people who were already doing an excellent job of managing their diabetes continue to do so, while lowering the risk of pushing their blood sugar so low it causes hypoglycemia, which can be life threatening," said Dr. Bruce Bode, Atlanta Diabetes Associates and one of the lead authors of the Diabetes Care paper. "These trials are showing that CGM not only helps people get into control, which can have a significant positive impact on lowering the risk of complications, but it enables them to stay in control without increasing the near-term risk of hypoglycemia. That's terrific news for people with diabetes and their families."

(People with diabetes try to maintain their blood sugar levels between 70 mg/dL and 180 mg/dL. When blood sugar becomes very low, people can become confused, lethargic, and even slip into a coma or die. Very high blood sugars can also be dangerous. And long term, lack of control increases the risk of developing devastating complications, including eye, kidney, nerve, and heart disease. HbA1c is a measure of long term blood sugar control; standards of good control are generally below 7% for adults, and below 7.5% to 8% for children, depending on age. According to the DCCT findings, every one point reduction in HbA1c reduces the risk of long-term complications by approximately 40%.)

According to the study, for the people using CGM devices the time the blood sugar level was below 70 mg/dL decreased by 37 minutes a day. This compared with a decrease in the control group of only 5 minutes a day. In other words, people in the CGM group spent almost two hours m
