TARGETS ADVISED FOR TIME IN RANGE

An international panel of diabetes experts

has published guidelines for continuous

glucose monitoring (CGM). Presented

at the American Diabetes Association's

(ADA's) 79th Scientific Sessions in San

Francisco, the targets are for both

research and clinical settings:

• People with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes:

3.9-10.0mmol/l

• People with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes

during pregnancy: 3.5-7.8mmol/ during

pregnancy, along with a set of targets for

the time per day (% of CGM readings or

minutes/hrs)

• Older and/or high-risk people with

Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes: The panel

recommends conservative CGM targets,

focusing on reducing the percentage of

time spent 3.9 mmol/l and preventing

excessive hyperglycaemia.

Recommendations are based on data

from large pre-CGM clinical trials, CGM

randomised controlled trials, and expert

opinion. However, the panel agrees that

targets must also be personalised to meet

individual needs.

The group's objective was to develop

evidence-based, clinical CGM targets to

supplement the current measurements

for CGM derived times in glucose ranges

(within target range, below target range,

above target range) in order to provide

guidance for in routine clinical care and

research.

Presenting author, Professor Tadej

Battelinois the Head of the Department of

Paediatric and Adolescent Endocrinology

at Ljubljana University Medical Centre

in Slovenia, and Chair and Professor of

Paediatrics at the University of Ljubljana,

said: "CGM has the potential to transform

diabetes care and our group believes that

clear, easy-to-understand and broadly

agreed-upon glycaemic targets for timein-range levels

will positively impact

short- and long-term diabetes outcomes,

particularly if understood and adopted by

people with diabetes."

ROTAVIRUS AND T1D

Researchers from the University of

Melbourne suggest that the rotavirus

infection could be linked to triggering the

onset of Type 1 diabetes.

Vaccination programmes in Australia

have significantly decreased mortality

rates as a result of the highly contagious

stomach bug, which causes diarrhoea

and vomiting. The researchers note a

15% decrease in the incidence of Type 1

diabetes in children under the age of four

following the introduction of the rotavirus

vaccination in Australia.

The researchers also reviewed

molecular evidence, which showed strong

similarities between the rotavirus and islet

autoantibodies. Because the rotavirus

mimics autoantibodies, it lends itself to

the theory that rotavirus could trigger Type

1 diabetes.
