Background: continuous glucose monitoring systems (CGMs) play an important role in the management of T1D, but their accuracy may reduce during rapid glucose excursions. The aim of study was to assess the accuracy of recent rt-CGMs available in Italy, in subjects with T1D during 2 sessions of physical activity: moderate continuous (CON) and interval exercise (IE).

Method: we recruited 22 patients with T1D, on CSII associated or integrated with a CGM, to which a second different sensor was applied. Data recorded by CGMs were compared with the corresponding plasma glucose (PG) values, measured every 5 minutes with the glucose analyzer. To assess the accuracy of the CGMs, we evaluated the Sensor Bias (SB), the Mean Absolute Relative Difference (MARD) and the Clarke error grid (CEG).

Results: a total of 2355 plasma-sensor glucose paired points were collected. Both average plasma and interstitial glucose concentrations did not significantly differ during CON and IE. During CON: 1. PG change at the end of exercise was greater than during IE ( = .034); 2. all sensors overestimated PG more than during IE, as shown by SB ( < .001) and MARD ( < .001) comparisons. Classifying the performance according to the CEG, significant differences were found between the 2 sessions in distribution of points in A and B zones.

Conclusions: the exercise affects the accuracy of currently available CGMs, especially during CON, suggesting, in this circumstance, the need to maintain blood glucose in a "prudent" range, above that generally recommended. Further studies are needed to investigate additional types of activities.
