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

ore time per day in the target blood sugar range of 71 to 180 mg/dL compared with the control group, and about half an hour less time per day with glucose values in the potentially dangerous hypoglycemia range. The authors demonstrated a number of other significant benefits in this population including:
  • more people in the CGM group had an improvement in HbA1c of more than 0.3% (31% versus 5% in the control group)
  • fewer had a worsening of HbA1c greater than 0.3% (28% versus 52%)
  • more CGM users had a HbA1c level below 7% at 26 weeks (88% versus 63%)
  • more people in the CGM group than the control group had a decrease in HbA1c of more than 0.3% without experiencing a severe hypoglycemic event (28% versus 5%).

Encouragingly, similar beneficial results were seen in children, adolescents, and adults spanning the ages of 8 to 69 years.

Dr. Aaron Kowalski, Program Director for Metabolic Control at JDRF, explained that in planning this study, the change in HbA1c was not selected as the primary outcome measure because the researchers did not anticipate being able to lower HbA1c levels in the CGM group, given their already exquisite level of control. He noted that the study group expected that there might even be small and clinically insignificant increases in HbA1c values in the CGM group if the devices were able to help them reduce the frequency of glucose levels below 70 mg/dL. Instead, the CGM group was able to maintain HbA1c levels with less biochemical hypoglycemia, whereas HbA1c levels rose over time in the control group. He noted that all the HbA1c outcomes favored the CGM over the control group.

Major eligibility criteria for the study included people over the age of 8 who had type 1 diabetes for at least one year, who either used an insulin pump or took at least three daily insulin injections, and had HbA1c levels below 7.0%. Subjects in the control group were given blood glucose meters and test strips and
