  • Data are conventional and SI units (95% CI).

  • *

    * Glucose measured by capillary glucose meter with values adjusted to reflect plasma concentration (3).

  • Values obtained by continuous monitoring of interstitial fluid (2).

  • The time of the “peak” postprandial glucose concentration = 70 min (44–96).
