Time differences between blood glucose (BG) and interstitial glucose (IG) as determined by continuous subcutaneous glucose sensor

BG to sensor
Sensor to sensor
Is BG-to-sensor time difference zero? (No, if P < 0.05)
Is BG-to-sensor time difference comparable to sensor-to-sensor? (Yes, if P > 0.05)
