Background: While most of the common drugs with the potential to interfere with continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems are accessible over the counter and can be assumed by CGM patients without medical supervision, many other chemicals are frequently used to treat critically ill patients. Continuous glucose monitoring reading accuracy may also be compromised in patients characterized by abnormally high concentrations of physiological interferents. In this article, 22 species selected from…

Interference Assessment of Various Endogenous and Exogenous Substances on the Performance of the Eversense Long-Term Implantable Continuous Glucose Monitoring System

Although tetracycline and mannitol interfered with the Eversense sensor, substances frequently reported to interfere with enzymatic, electrochemical-based transcutaneous CGM systems, such as acetaminophen and ascorbic acid, did not affect Eversens readings.

Laboratory Protocol and Pilot Results for Dynamic Interference Testing of Continuous Glucose Monitoring Sensors.
