Children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes reduced their time spent in hypoglycemia from 2.8% to 1.4% after six months of using a predictive low-glucose management system, compared with the sensor-augmented pump therapy group that had a reduction from 3% to 2.6%, according to a study in Diabetes Care. Australian researchers used a cohort of 154 youths with diabetes, mean age of 13.2, and found that there were fewer hypoglycemic events in the PLGM group than in the sensor-augmented pump group at the end of the study.
