Researchers evaluated data from 50 pregnant women with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, mean age of 29 years, and found that those who used a smart glucose meter while receiving standard care during pregnancy had higher hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia events, with an average of 12.7 and 20.5, respectively, compared with 5.6 and 9.32 in the control group who received standard care alone. The findings, presented at the American Association of Diabetes Educators annual meeting, also revealed that those in the smart meter group were more likely to use a continuous glucose monitor than controls.
