What's new?This is the first head‐to‐head glucose monitoring study comparing continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) and flash glucose monitoring. This study addresses the highest risk group with problematic and severe hypoglycaemia.CGM has a greater beneficial impact on hypoglycaemia outcomes than flash glucose monitoring for people at high risk of hypoglycaemia.The data contribute to the existing CGM literature and are the first for flash glucose monitoring in a high‐risk group, expanding the evidence base.The results are clinically relevant and support a role for CGM in the clinical pathway in people with severe hypoglycaemia or impaired awareness of hypoglycaemia.IntroductionType 1 diabetes accounts for 10–15% of the worldwide diabetes prevalence and its incidence is increasing worldwide by 3–5% percent annually . Achieving optimal glucose control, as measured by HbA1c, reduces the risk of micro‐ and macrovascular complications, but can be challenging for people living with Type 1 diabetes due to hypoglycaemia .Hypoglycaemia is a metabolic complication of Type 1 diabetes and is one of the major barriers to optimizing glucose self‐management. People with Type 1 diabetes on average have 1.8 self‐treated incidences of hypoglycaemia per week, and 0.2–3.2 episodes of severe hypoglycaemia, defined as hypoglycaemia requiring the assistance of a third party, annually
