The authors find that use of flash glucose-sensing technology for glycemic management in patients with type 2 diabetes treated by insulin was associated with a sustained reduction in hypoglycemia and safely and effectively replaced self-monitoring of blood glucose.

Continuous glucose monitoring is associated with improvements in diabetes-specific quality of life compared with self-monitoring among patients with type 1 diabetes who use multiple daily insulin injections, study results suggest.
Research shows that switching to an insulin pump does not improve glycemic control in patients referred to an educational program after struggling to control their type 1 diabetes with multiple daily injections.
Results of a randomized trial suggest that continuous glucose monitoring can be used without regular confirmatory blood glucose monitoring among adult insulin pump users with well-controlled type 1 diabetes.
