Objective: To compare glycemic patterns by mode of therapy in children with type 1 diabetes mellitus using the Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (CGMS). Design: Open randomized crossover comparing 3 1 ⁄2 months of multiple daily injections (MDI) and continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII). Setting: Tertiary care, university-affiliated medical center. Patients: Twenty-three children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes mellitus. Interventions: The CGMS was applied for 72 hours after 1
