Electronic databases and published references were utilized to establish studies published between 2012 and 2022. There were 29 studies identified that included the search terms T1D, anxiety, parents, CGM. After careful quantitative measurements analysis, seven studies remained. The researchers of the seven studies utilized CGM in children with T1D and surveyed parental anxiety, psychosocial care and quality of life.
