Glucose monitoring has evolved significantly and now allows people with diabetes to use continuous glucose monitoring to help manage their condition. While measurement of HbA1c has been the traditional method for assessing glycaemic control and is still the gold standard, it does not reflect intra- and inter-day glycaemic excursions that may lead to acute events such as hypoglycaemia or postprandial hyperglycaemia, which have been linked to both microvascular and macrovascular complications. Time in range, the percentage of time that a patient is within the glycaemic range of 70 to 180 mg/dL, represents a new concept as a patient-relevant outcome parameter of glucose monitoring beyond HbA1c. This module focusses on time in range as being an appropriate clinical endpoint in diabetes research and a measure of glycaemic control in patients as well as exploring trial data of time in range and the development of vascular complications in people with diabetes.
