The article cites a study that focuses on the combination of continuous glucose monitoring with Alc levels in subjects with type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and non-diabetics. The patients underwent continuous glucose monitoring with a Medtronic device that performs serum glucose determinations every five minutes, and performed for two days at baseline. It reveals that linear regression relationship between Alc and average glucose is the same in both normal and diabetic individuals.
