Outcomes of using flash glucose monitoring technology by children and young people with type 1 diabetes in a single arm study

The study outlined in this slide set showed improved time in optimal blood glucose range and greater treatment satisfaction among children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes using flash glucose monitoring compared with self-monitoring.

UKPDS clinical trial summary slides

A collection of downloadable PowerPoint slides summarizing the primary and follow-up UKPDS findings. The aim of the UKPDS was to determine the effect of intensive glycemic control on the incidence of complications in patients with type 2 diabetes.

Accuracy, user acceptability, and safety evaluation for the FreeStyle Libre flash glucose monitoring system when used by pregnant women with diabetes

This slide set describes a study of flash glucose monitoring in pregnant women with diabetes, which demonstrates clinical accuracy versus self-monitoring of blood glucose and a high level of acceptability by the patients.

Use of flash glucose-sensing technology for 12 months as a replacement for blood glucose monitoring in insulin-treated type 2 diabetes

This slide set outlines the extension phase of the REPLACE trial, which shows that the significant reductions in hypoglycemia obtained in patients with insulin-dependent type 2 diabetes after 6 months of flash glucose monitoring use were sustained over an additional 6 months.

Flash glucose-sensing technology as a replacement for blood glucose monitoring for the management of insulin-treated type 2 diabetes: a multicenter, open-label randomized controlled trial

This slide set outlines the results of an open-label trial suggesting that the use of flash glucose-sensing technology results in similar changes in glycated hemoglobin over 6 months compared with standard self-monitoring among insulin-treated patients with type 2 diabetes.

Impact of flash glucose monitoring on hypoglycaemia in adults with type 1 diabetes managed with multiple daily injection therapy: a pre-specified subgroup analysis of the IMPACT randomised controlled trial

This slide set describes the results of a subgroup analysis of the IMPACT study, which demonstrates that the use of flash glucose technology is associated with a significant reduction in the time spent in hypoglycemia among patients with well-controlled type 1 diabetes treated with multiple daily injections.

Novel glucose-sensing technology and hypoglycaemia in type 1 diabetes: a multicentre, non-masked, randomised controlled trial

This slide set presents trial findings showing that patients with well-controlled type 1 diabetes who undergo flash glucose testing achieve a greater reduction in the time spent in hypoglycemia over 6 months than those who carry out standard self-monitoring.
