  • Overview

    There are many challenges associated with managing type 1 diabetes (T1D) in pregnant patients, which is why a recent study examined the use of an automated insulin delivery system in this patient population. Using this method, insulin doses were adjusted every 8 to 10 minutes according to a patient’s real-time glucose levels taken from her continuous glucose monitor. As a result, women experienced a higher percentage time in the pregnancy glucose target range, less hyperglycemia, and less gestational weight gain. Learn more about how these findings may impact the management of T1D both during and after pregnancy with Dr. John Buse and Dr. Helen Murphy, a Professor of Medicine in Diabetes and Antenatal Care at the University of East Anglia in the United Kingdom.
