Medtronic MiniMed’s Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (CGMS) improved kids' control by providing them with accurate data—for adjustment of insulin treatments—and by promoting better communication and motivation.
French researchers, in an effort to determine the efficacy of the CGMS as an outpatient procedure in kids, observed 12 type 1 adolescents with an average age of 16 years.
