Seven years of improving glycemic management

Decreased Time to Control

Between 2009 and 2015, hyperglycemic patients achieved glucose levels ≤180 mg/dL within 1.5 to 2.3 hours.

Significantly Reduced Hypoglycemia Events

Patients experienced minimal hypoglycemia, with 0.46% of BG values <70 mg/dL and 0.02% <40 mg/dL in 2015.

Z

Minimal Blood Glucose Excursions

After achieving glucose control, excursions (>180 mg/dL) occurred in only 4% of patients, with an average duration of 1.91 hours.
