Continuous glucose monitoring in adolescents with cystic fibrosis

J Pediatr. 2005 Sep;147(3):396-8. doi: 10.1016/j.jpeds.2005.05.004.


The presence of cystic fibrosis (CF)-related diabetes was evaluated in 19 adolescents with CF by continuous glucose monitoring system (CGMS) and oral glucose tolerance testing. CGMS confirmed diabetic glucose excursions in 7/19 subjects deemed diabetic on oral glucose tolerance testing. CGMS is a useful tool for detecting hyperglycemia in CF.
