Flash glucose monitoring linked with lower HbA1c

The first large, real-world study also shows better awareness of hypoglycaemia in people with T1DM

An audit of a UK cohort using a flash glucose-monitoring system shows that the patients have lower HbA1c and are more aware of hypoglycaemia than they were before using the device.

The audit, instigated by the Association of British Clinical Diabetologists and funded by Abbott Diabetes Care, followed more than 10,000 users of the company's FreeStyle Libre device at 102 public hospitals in the UK.
