Objective:

The aim was to formulate practice guidelines for determining settings where patients are most likely to benefit from the use of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM).

Conclusions:

  • The Task Force evaluated three potential uses of CGM
    1. real-time CGM in adult hospital settings
    2. real-time CGM in children and adolescent outpatients
    3. real-time CGM in adult outpatients

  • The Task Force used the best available data to develop evidence-based recommendations about where CGM can be beneficial in maintaining target levels of glycemia and limiting the risk of hypoglycemia.
     
  • Both strength of recommendations and quality of evidence were accounted for in the guidelines.
