Author information

Department of Internal Medicine, Academic Medical Center, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.


With more and more continuous glucose monitoring devices entering the market, the importance of adequate accuracy assessment grows. This review discusses pros and cons of Regression Analysis and Correlation Coefficient, Relative Difference measures, Bland Altman plot, ISO criteria, combined curve fitting, and epidemiological analyses, the latter including sensitivity, specificity and positive predictive value for hypoglycaemia. Finally, recommendations for much needed head-to-head studies are given. This paper is a revised and adapted version of How to assess and compare the accuracy of continuous glucose monitors?, Diabetes Technology and Therapeutics 2007, in press, published with permission of the editor.
