Background and Aims: Background: Obesity in type 1 diabetes (T1D) is known to be associated with higher blood glucose levels and diabetes‐related complications. Blood glucose (BG) control is increasingly being determined by Time in Range (TIR), a parameter derived from continuous glucose monitors (CGMs), corresponding to the percentage of time BG range is between 70‐180 mg/dL. The primary objective of the U.S.‐based multi‐center study was to determine if body mass index (BMI) is associated with TIR.
Methods: Methods: Electronic health record data from the T1D Exchange Quality Improvement (T1DX‐QI) Collaborative for young adults (18‐35 years) from 2018‐2020 was analyzed. People with complete information on TIR, recorded as a 2‐week average, BMI, sex, race/ethnicity and insurance status were included in this analysis. Patients were classified as overweight and obese if they had a BMI (kg/m2) of 25 to <30 and >30, respectively.
