ABSTRACT
Adults with type 1 diabetes experienced decreased periods of high or low blood sugar when using a long-term implantable, continuous glucose sensor, according to a study in the March issue of the journal Diabetes Care. Researchers at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center's Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes conducted this first study of the sensor and its affects on glucose excursions, or periods of hypo- or hyperglycemia. The study showed that when participants observed data from the implanted continuous glucose monitor, they experienced 47 percent less time in hypoglycemia, a state of low or below normal blood sugar levels.

    Currently, the major indications for solitary islet transplantation are recurrent severe hypoglycemia and labile glucose control. Quantifying these problems remains subjective. We have developed a scoring system for both hypoglycemia and glycemic lability, established normative data, and used...
