Abstract

What's new?Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is the cornerstone of future diabetes technologies, and it is essential that healthcare providers comprehend the user experience with CGM in order to promote sustained use.This qualitative meta‐synthesis synthesizes nine studies (343 participants) to provide a meaningful picture of the impact of CGM: interacting with CGM, emotional burden, feeling different, feeling empowered, using glucose information and affecting relationships.This synthesis identifies targets for intervention including optimizing CGM settings, discussing empowerment strategies, and forming partnerships with parents, significant others and providers.IntroductionEnormous advances in the treatment of Type 1 diabetes mellitus have been made in the past decade, with new and sophisticated technologies coming to the forefront of care. Continuous glucose monitors (CGM) became commercially available in the middle of the first decade of the 21st century, and have been shown to improve long‐term glycaemic outcomes as well as reduce incidence of hypoglycaemia . CGM systems comprise a subcutaneous glucose sensor, a transmitter affixed to the skin and attached to the sensor, and a wireless receiver or mobile phone that displays the glucose results every 5 min. They are often coupled with an insulin pump to minimize the number of devices.CGM utility is increasing dramatically with new
