Introduction: Many patients with diabetes experience high variability in glucose concentrations which is associated with a risk of hypoglycemia. The aim of this was to compare the predictive value of HbA1C, mean interstitial glucose (MIG), and glucose variability (GV) in the risk of hypoglycemia in patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D).Methods: Continuous glucose monitoring, using CGMS system, was performed in 130 T1D patients with diabetes duration of 17....
