A study presented at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes' annual meeting and published in The Lancet found improved birth outcomes among pregnant women with type 1 diabetes who had continuous glucose monitoring, compared with traditional finger-prick tests. Researchers used a cohort of 215 pregnant women and 110 women planning pregnancy and found that 15% of babies born to women in the CGM group had neonatal hypoglycemia that required intravenous treatment and 27% required neonatal intensive care of more than 24 hours, compared with 28% and 43% of those born to women in the control group, respectively.
