Why it matters: Continuous glucose monitoring devices (CGM) can significantly reduce the need for people with diabetes to conduct finger-prick testing.
NICE guidance for Type 1 diabetes in adults, Type 2 diabetes in adults and Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes in children and young people were all updated in March 2022. The updates include recommendations that all patients with type 1 diabetes should be offered a choice of real-time continuous glucose monitoring (rtCGM) or intermittently scanned continuous glucose monitoring (isCGM) and that adults with type 2 diabetes on multiple daily insulin injections should be offered GM where they meet specific clinical criteria.
