Proposals for therapeutic decisions according to glucose trends in patients with type 1 diabetes
diabetes mellitus type 1, self-control, glucose monitoring, glucose trends
Nowadays, self-management of diabetes is more and more often based on continuous and flash glucose monitoring systems. In addition to measuring current glucose levels, both systems provide blood glucose levels from the past few hours in the form of a graph, as well as an indication of glucose trends via arrows. This information adds a new dimension to the self-management of diabetes, and should result in the modification of diabetes therapy. The paper presents proposals for modifications of treatment decisions based on glucose trends in patients with type 1 diabetes. By considering glucose trends, it is hoped that glycemic variability and numbers of hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia episodes will be reduced.
