Background: The purpose of this study was to add the missing information on glycemic levels and patterns as measured by continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in the daily life of healthy children aged 2-8 years. These data are needed when studying glycemic patterns and treatment outcome in children aged 2-8 years with diabetes. Methods: Each of the 15 healthy children aged 2-7.99 years used a CGM device (Dexcom G4 Platinum) for 7 days. Results: A total of 15 children (10 girls) aged 5.4 ± 1.6 years registered a mean of 1976 ± 15 counts. Mean sensor glucose was 5.3 ± 1.0 mmol/L (95 ± 18 mg/dL) and 89% of values were in the range 4-7.8 mmol/L (72-140 mg/dL), 9% of sensor glucose values were <4.0 mmol/L (72 mg/dL), and 2% of sensor glucose values were >7.8 mmol/L (140 mg/dL). Conclusion: We present glycemic data as measured by CGM in healthy children aged 2-8 years.
