It is difficult to detect glycemic excursions using CGM in daily clinical practice. We retrospectively analyzed CGM data in type T2DM to define the correlations between HbA1c and GA levels at admission and the parameters representing glycemic excursions measured by CGM, including the mean amplitude of glycemic excursions (MAGE) and standard deviation (SD). The MAGE correlated significantly with GA and HbA1c, but not with the GA/HbA1c ratio. The SD correlated significantly with GA, HbA1c, and

Patients were divided into 2 groups using a MAGE cutoff value of 75 mg/dl, which reflects stable diabetes. There was a significant difference in GA, but not HbA1c, between the groups with low and high mean amplitudes of glycemic excursions. Receiver operating characteristic curve analysis indicated that the cutoff for GA for identifying patients with MAGE of ≤75 mg/dl was 18.1%. Our study identified GA to be the most reflective of glycemic excursions in patients with T2DM. GA can be a useful index of glycemic excursions and treatment optimization to prevent arteriosclerosis.
