Continuous Glucose Monitoring therapy can help in reducing blood glucose level

Recent news published online in the New England Journal of Medicine reveals the reduction of average blood glucose levels (A1c) of adults using Personal Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) therapy.

This result was concluded by undergoing a long term (six months) 322-patient trial, funded by the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). After six months, adults using Personal CGM show a statistically significant 0.53 percent of absolute reduction in A1c group as compared to the control group.

This reduction of blood glucose level vary form 0.5 to 0.7 percent when, personal CGM was used at least six days a week. Moreover the researchers also found that this decrease occurs without increasing severe hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).
