The January 2018 issue of Diabetes Forecast includes an article titled, A Standardized Glucose Data Display May Lead to Better Treatment. This article introduces the AGP report to a wider audience of patients and caregivers. To see the article follow this link: http://www.diabetesforecast.org/2018/01-jan-feb/a-standardized-glucose-d...
At ATTD 2017, an international panel of physicians, researchers, and individuals with diabetes came together for a consensus meeting and addressed the issues around continuous glucose monitoring (CGM).
Even though CGM moves beyond HbA1c measurement, there are issues such as the lack of standardized metrics for analyzing CGM data, and no clear criteria for matching patients to most appropriate glucose monitoring methodologies.
Consensus recommendations and the current understanding of how CGM results can affect outcomes are now summarizes in this publication of Diabetes Care.

Drs. Fonseca and Grunberger, Co-Chairs of AACE/ACE Consensus Conference Writing Committee submitted a letter to the editor of Endocrine Practice noting that AACE supports "making the AGP report standard across all platforms (diabetes devices and diabetes data management software)." The AGP report as standard, is also being added to the AACE CGM Consensus Conference Statement. Link below to full letter.
