GLYCEMIC VARIABILITY IN DIABETIC PATIENTS ON CHRONIC HEMODIALYSIS: IMPORTANCE AND MONITORING METHODS
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is associated with increased risk of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Several factors may increase the risk of hypoglycemia in diabetic patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Increased glycemic variability in diabetic patients on chronic hemodialysis augments death risk; consequently, glucose monitoring may improve the prognostic of these patients. Carefully selected continuous glycemic monitoring devices may allow better monitoring, which is expected to translate into better treatment tailoring, from which diabetic patients on chronic hemodialysis may consistently benefit in terms of outcome, improved quality of life, and lower death risk.
