Abstract

P398Trial of FreeStyle Libre flash glucose monitoring (FGM) in patients with poorly controlled Type 1 diabetesK MITCHELL and C McDougallDepartment of Diabetes, Hairmyres Hospital, NHS Lanarkshire, East Kilbride, UKBackground/AimsThe Freestyle Libre FGM system measures interstitial fluid glucose and records an ambulatory glucose profile. Previous studies have demonstrated improvement in HbA1c, frequency of hypoglycaemia and quality of life in patients with moderately controlled Type 1 diabetes. This study aimed to assess the impact of FGM on these parameters in patients with Type 1 diabetes with poor glycaemic control (HbA1c ≥75mmol/mol).Methods: Sixteen patients (62.5% female) with Type 1 diabetes were studied (mean ± SD: age 33.6 ± 14.7 years, duration of diabetes 16.6 ± 10.7 years).

HbA1c, quality of life (problem areas in diabetes [PAID] scale), frequency of glucose monitoring and frequency of hypoglycaemia (glucose <4mmol/l) were measured at baseline and after 12 weeks.Results: Thirteen patients (81.3%) completed the study.
