Conclusion: AGP is one of the most recent, innovative developments that are being used to monitor Glycaemic variability in DM patients. AGP is generated from the Flash Glucose Monitoring device which is like a CGM device attached to the patient for a maximum period of 14 days, which checks the ISF glucose at every 15 minutes. We are able to get a Glycaemic variability curve, a median, a modal, various percentiles and statistical data generated through this. AGP study in the patient provides the doctor with an opportunity to have a complete glycemic picture of the patient l. It offers a reliable, predictive, standardized vi...
