Aims: Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) can improve glucometrics in children with type 1 diabetes (T1D), and its efficacy is positively related to glucose sensor use for at least 60% of the time. We therefore investigated the relationship between CGM satisfaction as assessed by a robust questionnaire and glucose control in pediatric T1D patients. Methods: This was a cross-sectional study of children and adolescents with T1D using CGM. The CGM Satisfaction (CGM-SAT) questionnaire was administered to patients and demographic, clinical, and glucometrics data were recorded. Results: Two hundred and ten consecutively enrolled patients attending 14 Italian pediatric diabetes clinics completed the CGM-SAT questionnaire. CGM-SAT scores were not associated with age, gender, annual HbA1c, % of time with an active sensor, time above range (TAR), time below range (TBR), and coefficient of variation (CV). However, CGM satisfaction was positively correlated with time in range (TIR, p < 0.05) and negatively correlated with glycemia risk index (GRI, p < 0.05). Conclusions: CGM seems to have a positive effect on glucose control in patients with T1D. CGM satisfaction is therefore an important patient-reported outcome to assess and it is associated with increased TIR and reduced GRI.

Abstract

Aims: Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) can improve glucometrics in children with type 1 diabetes (T1D), and its efficacy is positively related to glucose sensor use for at least 60% of the time. We therefore investigated the relationship between CGM satisfaction as assessed by a robust questionnaire and glucose control in pediatric T1D patients. Methods: This was a cross-sectional study of children and adolescents with T1D using CGM. The CGM Satisfaction (CGM-SAT) questionnaire was administered to patients and demographic, clinical, and glucometrics data were recorded. Results: Two hundred and ten consecutively enrolled patients attending 14 Italian pediatric diabetes clinics completed the CGM-SAT questionnaire. CGM-SAT scores were not associated with age, gender, annual HbA1c, % of time with an active sensor, time above range (TAR), time below range (TBR), and coefficient of variation (CV). However, CGM satisfaction was positively correlated with time in range (TIR, p < 0.05) and negatively correlated with glycemia risk index (GRI, p < 0.05). Conclusions: CGM seems to have a positive effect on glucose control in patients with T1D. CGM satisfaction is therefore an important patient-reported outcome to assess and it is associated with increased TIR and reduced GRI.
