Objective: We aim to examine the effects of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) within our local population by means of pre- and post-CGM introduction A1C, time spent in hypoglycaemia and time spent within personalised target.

Methods: Retrospective study of the County Durham and Darlington Foundation Trust (CDDFT) patient group who use CGM was undertaken via the platform ‘twinkle’ and ‘diasend’. Results were graphed prior to statistical evaluation. Primary outcome was change in HbA1c.

Results: The primary outcome of A1c showed improvement from pre-CGM measurements to post-CGM introduction. We also present data showing time spent in hypoglycaemia and time spent in personalised target which compares favourably to International data across adult and paediatric populations.

Conclusion: Use of continuous glucose monitoring locally has similar results to those in national adult trials. All parameters studied (A1c, time in hypoglycaemia, time within target) have improved within our local trust. Ongoing use remains recommended.
