Predictors of continuous glucose monitoring use in adolescents with type 1 diabetes
Background: Type 1 diabetes (T1D) requires lifelong insulin injections and glucose monitoring to reduce long term health complications. Adolescents have the poorest glycemic control of all individuals with T1D, and have difficulty maintaining necessary self-management behaviors. Continuous Glucose Monitors (CGM) are devices that provide near-constant glucose information for the user and can improve glycemic control. However, many adolescents choose not to use CGM consistently. The purpose of this study was to explore predictors of consistent CGM use in adolescents with T1D. Methods: Using data ...
