Table 2 STAR BG target ranges and approach for BG in the 4.0-7.5 mmol/L range

From: Pilot proof of concept clinical trials of Stochastic Targeted (STAR) glycemic control

Measurement interval BG percentile and target BG for that measurement interval Goal and outcome
1-hour 95th percentile is targeted equal to 6.5 mmol/L unless 5th percentile BG < 4.0 mmol/L ELSE: 5th percentile targeted at 4.0 mmol/L Ensures 95% of outcome BG are in 4.0-6.5 mmol/L target range and risk of moderate hypoglycemia BG < 4.0 mmol/L does not exceed 5%.
2-hour 5th percentile targeted at 4.4 mmol/L Ensures most likely BG values are in 4.4-6.5 mmol/L range, and a maximum risk of 5% for BG < 4.4 mmol/L. It also accepts a potentially greater likelihood of exceeding 6.5 mmol/L at end of interval as preferable to being lower than 4.4 mmol/L.
3-hour 5th percentile targeted at 4.4 mmol/L Ensures most likely BG values are in 4.4-6.5 mmol/L range, and a maximum risk of 5% for BG < 4.4 mmol/L. It also accepts a potentially greater likelihood of exceeding 6.5 mmol/L at end of interval as preferable to being lower than 4.4 mmol/L.
