Data are presented as means ± SD. , female patients versus male patients. MAGE: mean amplitude of glycemic excursions (mmol/L), MG: mean glucose (mmol/L), SD: standard deviation (mmol/L), CV: coefficient of variation (%), AUC: area under curve above 10.0 mmol/L (mmol/L per day), PT: the percentage time duration of glucose above 10.0 mmol/L (%).
