The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) funded a one year study last year with 322 patients-adults and pediatric. It was the largest personal CGM study ever conducted and compared meter readings with glucose sensor readings in patients using insulin pumps or multiple daily injections. The six month study results were published in The New England Journal of Medicine (Oct 2008).

Study Highlights:

More usage equals better control: higher utilization of Personal CGM is associated with greater A1C reduction
More patients in the Personal CGM group had A1C reductions (53% absolute reduction in adults)
All ages using the device at least six days a week had substantially lower A1c levels
Improvements in A1c occurred without the risk of hypoglycemia
