Effect of Continuous Glucose Monitoring on Glycemic Control in Adolescents and Young Adults With Type 1 Diabetes: A Randomized Clinical Trial

RCT (n=153) found that among adolescents & young adults, continuous glucose monitoring vs standard blood glucose monitoring resulted in a small but statistically significant improvements in glycaemic control (HbA1c difference -0.37%, p=0.01) over 26 weeks.

SPS commentary:

A separate study in older adults found that continuous glucose monitoring resulted in a small improvement in hypoglycaemia over 6 months (difference = -1.9% time [or -27 minutes] at <70mg/dL, p<0.001).
