To explore the role of flash glucose monitoring system combined with insulin pump in the blood glucose treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Eighty patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus treated in our hospital from September 2019 to September 2020 were randomly divided into two groups (n=40) using a random number table. Both groups received hypoglycemic treatment using an insulin pump. During treatment, blood glucose level was measured by collecting the fingertip blood of control group, while dynamic blood glucose monitoring was carried out for observation group using the flash glucose monitoring system. Blood glucose indices, time of controlling blood glucose to target level, insulin dosage, incidence rate of hypoglycemia, comfort score; mental state scores, sleep quality score and quality of life score were compared. After treatment, fasting blood glucose and 2 h postprandial blood glucose were lower, time of controlling blood glucose to target level was shorter and insulin dosage was smaller in observation group than those in control group (p<0.05). Observation group had lower incidence rate of hypoglycemia, Self-rating Anxiety Scale, Self-rating Depression Scale and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index scores, as well as higher comfort and quality of life scores than those of control group (p<0.05). In the intensive hypoglycemic treatment of patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus using an insulin pump, the application of flash glucose monitoring system can effectively control blood glucose, accelerate blood glucose control and reduce insulin dosage and hypoglycemia reaction, which is helpful to raise the comfort level of patients, ameliorate the psychological and sleep states and improve the quality of life.
