Investigators assessed the prevalence of diabetic complications among youth with type 1 diabetes with or without use of insulin pumps.
For children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes, hybrid closed-loop (HCL) therapy improves glycemic control and quality of life.
This systematic review and meta-analysis included 14 studies comparing CSII with MDI (8 studies) and CGM with SMBG (6 studies) in type 1 diabetes.
The expanded approval was based on data from the phase 3 PRONTO-PUMP-2 trial which evaluated Lyumjev vs Humalog for use in insulin pump therapy in 432 adults with type 1 diabetes.
Remote digital monitoring is relatively new in diabetes care. It can be either complimentary to care or intrusive. In this study, researchers focus on concerns patients have from privacy to wearability.
Continuous glucose monitoring is a safe and useful method to measure blood glucose levels in the hospital, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Continuous glucose monitoring improves glycemic control in adolescents and young adults with T1D and is beneficial for hypoglycemia in older adults with T1D.
The FDA has approved the FreeStyle® Libre 2 integrated continuous glucose monitoring system (Abbott) for adults and children ≥4 years of age with diabetes.
Use of continuous glucose monitoring significantly decreases rates of hypoglycemia among children and adolescents who attend diabetes camps.
Researchers analyzed diabetes mobile applications to evaluate patient self-management capabilities and the compliance of these apps with diabetes care guidelines.
In-hospital use of continuous glucose monitoring may offer improvements in glycemic control and reduced exposure to COVID-19 for healthcare professionals.
