Flash Glucose Monitoring – outcomes from the paediatric population

Glucose monitoring is recognised as an essential element of diabetes management for children and young adults. In this session, Dr Campbell will discuss the clinical outcomes of the SELFY study which aimed to demonstrate the equivalence of time in range using the flash glucose monitoring system compared to self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) in children and young people (4-17 years) with type 1 diabetes. The presentation will provide strong evidence of the benefits of the use of the FreeStyle Libre system in children and young people.

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand the impact of using flash glucose monitoring in children and teenagers with type 1 diabetes to glycaemic control as measured by time in range and HbA1c, without impacting clinical concern on hypoglycaemic risk.
  • Clearly identify the clinical outcomes of flash glucose monitoring vs self-monitoring of blood glucose (SMBG) in children and teenagers with type 1 diabetes.
  • Reinforce the acceptance of the FreeStyle Libre system among children and young people with diabetes.
