Clinical use of glucose sensors in the treatment of diabetes in children and adolescents
2003 (English)In: Practical Diabetes International, ISSN 1357-8170, Vol. 20, no 1Article in journal (Refereed) Published
In spite of active treatment it is very difficult to achieve good metabolic control and avoid wide fluctuations in blood glucose, especially in insulin-deficient type 1 diabetic children and adolescents. Even the most intense self-monitoring of blood glucose gives just a glimpse of the full picture, and we usually know very little about glucose concentrations during the night. The MiniMed glucose sensor has been shown to be a helpful device, providing valuable information on which adjustment of treatment can be based and acting as an educational and motivating tool. Case studies illustrate how the glucose sensor can be used. Copyright ⌐ 2003 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
