Brief Summary:
This is an open-label, mono-centre, interventional study.The aim of this trial is to assess accuracy and reliability of a flash glucose monitoring system, the freestyle Libre (Abbott, CA, USA), in patients with type 1 diabetes.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Diabetes Type 1 Device: flash glucose monitoring Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Objective: To assess accuracy and reliability of a new-to-market flash glucose monitoring system, the freestyle Libre (Abbott, CA, USA), in patients with type 1 diabetes.

Study design: open-label, mono-centre interventional study. Patients will wear freestyle Libre for 14 days in the home setting. There will be no limitations in food intake or in physical activity, but patients will have at least 7 finger-stick/days. Patients will have 2 visits in our clinical center and in these visits we'll compare freestyle Libre values with blood sampling to determine glucose values with YSI, during euglycemia and during glucose excursion and induced hypo-hyperglycemia.

Study population: 48 patients will be included in this trial. Every patient will wear device for 14 days at home and during 2 visits at CRC Study endpoints: main endpoint will be the evaluation of freestyle Libre accuracy during real life compared to glucometer values and to YSI glucose values (during 2 visits). A separate analysis will be performed on the accuracy of the freestyle Libre in the hypoglycaemic (defined as a blood glucose value ≤3.9 mmol/L) and hyperglycaemic area (defined as a blood glucose value ≥10.0 mmol/L). Additionally, a separate analysis will be performed to assess device performance and accuracy per day of device life.

If patients enrolled in the study use Dexcom G4 or G5 (CGM) and wanted to continue to use it, he/she can do so. In this case we can compare the accuracy of Libre even towards Dexcom G4/G5 device.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: flash glucose monitoring
Patients will use a device: Freestyle Libre for 14 days
Device: flash glucose monitoring
Patients will use Freestyle Libre for 14 days at home, during this period they will have to perform at least 7 measurements of capillary blood glucose per day . Patients also will go to our clinical center on two separate occasions , to run a test breakfast. In one of the two occasions it will be specifically induced a moderate initial hyperglycemia and subsequent hypoglycemia . During the test meal and in the subsequent hours for a total of 6 hours , will be carried out frequent blood sampling for measurement of blood glucose using the Yellow Springs glucose analyzer ( YSI system ) , simultaneous measurements with Freestyle Libre and with glucometer.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. accuracy of freestyle Libre flash monitoring [ Time Frame: 14 days ]
    accuracy of freestyle Libre flash monitoring measured as MARD respect to blood glucose (YSI) during CRC visit and respect to glucometer during home setting


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Evaluate the accuracy of the Free Style Libre for each day of use and during normoglycaemia ( between 70 and 180 mg / dl ) [ Time Frame: 14 days ]
    accuracy of freestyle Libre flash monitoring during normoglycaemia (between 70 and 180 mg / dl) measured as MARD respect to blood glucose (YSI) during CRC visit and respect to glocometer during home setting, accuracy for each day of use measured as MARD respect to glucometer

  2. Evaluate the accuracy of the Free Style Libre for each day of use and during hypoglicaemia ( < 70 mg / dl ) [ Time Frame: 14 days ]
    accuracy of freestyle Libre flash monitoring during hypogliacemia (< 70 mg / dl) measured as MARD respect to blood glucose (YSI) during CRC visit and respect to glucometer during home setting,

  3. Evaluate the accuracy of the Free Style Libre for each day of use and during hyperglicemia ( >180 mg / dl ) [ Time Frame: 14 days ]
    accuracy of freestyle Libre flash monitoring measured as MARD respect to blood glucose (YSI) during CRC visit and respect to glucometer during home setting,
