Frederick R. Parents of young children with type 1 diabetes T1D experience unique, developmental challenges in managing their child's T1D, resulting in psychosocial distress.
Only a small portion of young children reach glucose goals and adherence to diabetes devices that help improve T1D management have historically been low in this population. The purpose of this study is to test four interventions that couple developmentally tailored behavioral supports with education to optimize use of diabetes devices and reduce psychosocial distress for parents of young children with T1D. The study team designed four behavioral interventions, two aimed at improving glucose control and two aimed at optimizing use of diabetes devices.

The goal of this paper is to describe the behavioral interventions developed for this study, including the results of a pilot test, and describe the methods and analysis plan to test this intervention strategy with ninety participants in a large-scale, randomized trial using a SMART design. A SMART design will permit a clinically relevant evaluation of the intervention strategy, as it allows multiple randomizations based on individualized assessments throughout the study instead of a fixed intervention dose seen in most traditional randomized controlled trials.
In this study, the inControl algorithm developed by TypeZero Technologies was embedded to a commercial Tandem t:slim X2 insulin pump, now called Control-IQ, paired with a Dexcom G6 continuous glucose monitor and tested for superiority against sensor augmented pump SAP therapy. Both groups were physician-monitored throughout the clinical trial.
Continuous glucose monitors CGM can detect asymptomatic hypoglycemia in this population without the need for painful glucose checks. One group of infants was remotely monitored in real-time by research staff during the hospitalization, whereas another group wore a blinded CGM. In both groups, hospital standard-of-care SOC glucose checks were performed. Clinical staff and families were blinded to CGM data.

Overall, the CGM detected five false-positive alerts and six true-positive alerts for hypoglycemia. Barriers to recruitment included fear of pain with glucose checks, concerns with CGM use, satisfaction with the hospital SOC, personal reasons independent of the study, and lack of interest in participating in research.

There are variable reports of risk of concordance for progression to islet autoantibodies and type 1 diabetes in identical twins after one twin is diagnosed. We examined development of positive autoantibodies and type 1 diabetes and the effects of genetic factors and common environment on autoantibody positivity in identical twins, nonidentical twins, and full siblings. Of these subjects, 17, identical twins, nonidentical twins, and 16, full siblings were followed for autoantibody positivity or type 1 diabetes for a median of 2. Mobile AP configurations also include a smartphone as computational hub and gateway to cloud applications e.
This International Diabetes Closed-Loop study was designed to demonstrate and evaluate the operation of the inControl AP using different CGMs and pump modalities without changes to the user interface, user experience, and underlying controller. Closed-loop systems titrate insulin based on sensor glucose levels, providing novel means to reduce the risk of hypoglycaemia while improving glycaemic control.
We will assess effectiveness of 6-month day-and-night closed-loop insulin delivery compared with usual care conventional or sensor-augmented pump therapy in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes. The trial adopts an open-label, multicentre, multinational UK and USA , randomised, single-period, parallel design.
Cognitive, emotional and behavioural characteristics of participants and caregivers and their responses to the closed-loop and clinical trial will be assessed. An incremental cost-effectiveness ratio for closed-loop will be estimated. The findings will be disseminated by peer-review publications and conference presentations. NCT; Pre-results. We tested the safety and performance of the "insulin-only" configuration of the bionic pancreas BP closed-loop blood-glucose control system in a home-use setting to assess glycemic outcomes using different static and dynamic glucose set-points.
This is an open-label non-randomized study with three consecutive intervention periods. Human factors HF testing was conducted using validated surveys. The last five days of each study arm were used for data analysis. Thirteen participants were enrolled with a mean age of 28 years, mean A1c of 7. There was less time View details for DOI We describe a case in which retained wires from a continuous glucose monitor were removed from the abdominal wall and peritoneum of a 6-year-old boy. We highlight a concern for continuous glucose monitor use in children and discuss surgical techniques used to retrieve tiny, mobile objects from complex body cavities.
In September , the U. Food and Drug Administration approved the Medtronic G "hybrid" closed-loop system. In Auto Mode, this system automatically controls basal insulin delivery based on continuous glucose monitoring data, but requires users enter carbohydrates and blood glucose for boluses.

To track real-world experience with this first commercial closed-loop device, we prospectively followed pediatric and adult patients starting the G system. This was a 1-year prospective observational study of patients with type 1 diabetes starting the G system between May and May in clinic. The primary reason for continuing Auto Mode was desire for increased time in range. At all visits, there was a significant correlation between hemoglobin A1c HbA1c and Auto Mode utilization.

While Auto Mode utilization correlates with improved glycemic control, a focus on usability and human factors is necessary to ensure use of Auto Mode. Alarms and sensor calibration are a major patient concern, which future technology should alleviate. A supervised h hybrid closed-loop HCL study was conducted in a hotel setting after a 7-day outpatient standard treatment phase.
Adults aged years with T1D and HbA1c between 6. Artificial Pancreas AP systems have been shown to improve glycemic control throughout the day and night in adults, adolescents, and children. However, AP testing remains limited during intense and prolonged exercise in adolescents and children.
We present the performance of the Tandem Control-IQ AP system in adolescents and children during a winter ski camp study, where high altitude, low temperature, prolonged intense activity, and stress challenged glycemic control. Study participants were randomized at each site.
