Abstract

BACKGROUND: The Predictive Low-Glucose Management (PLGM) system suspends basal insulin when hypoglycemia is predicted and reduces hypoglycemia. The aim of this analysis was to explore the characteristics of automated insulin suspension and sensor glucose (SG) responses following PLGM-initiated pump suspension. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes used the Medtronic MiniMed™ 640G pump as part of a randomized controlled trial. Data collected on a subgroup of participants on PLGM (suspend before low enabled) from CareLink® Therapy Management Software were analyzed to explore the time and duration of PLGM-initiated pump suspension. Day and nighttime were def..
