As this is a piece of research, the
research team cannot promise that
the study will benefit individuals
directly. However, the results of our
research and your experiences could
help to develop a new definition
of hypoglycaemia in CGM use and
better understanding of the impact of
hypos on people who have diabetes.
This information will help HCPs
advise you and other people like
yourself about diabetes care and in
particular the risks of hypos. It may
also be very valuable in reducing the
risk of having hypos. You can receive
the blinded continuous glucose data
at the end of the study, if you wish,
which you can show to your medical
team who may be able to offer you
personal insights and advice.
