Continuous Glucose Monitoring Beneficial for Hospitalized Diabetics

A randomized and controlled clinical trial with 110 patients has found that, for hospitalized patients with type 2 diabetes, tracking using a Bluetooth-enabled continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) device significantly improves regulation of glucose levels relative to patients whose blood sugar was checked with three pin-prick blood tests every 24 hours.

Patients with a CGM device recorded an average glucose level of 220 mg/dL, compared with 238 mg/dL among patients receiving standard care. The amount of time spent in hyperglycemia (with a blood sugar reading greater than 250 mg/dL) was 11% lower in the CGM group than it was in the standard care group.
