The SWITCH study (sensing with insulin pump therapy to control HbA1c): design and methods of a randomized controlled crossover trial on sensor-augmented insulin pump efficacy in type 1 diabetes suboptimally controlled with pump therapy
Battelino T et al. Diabetes Technol Ther. 2011 Jan;13(1):49-54.
Benefits of Sensor Augmented Pump Therapy
Purpose & design:
Sensor augmented pump therapy vs CSII in adults and children (7.5%<HbA1c<9.5%). RCT, 17 months f/up, 153 pts.
A1c decreased in both age groups:
Children: - 0.46% (p< 0.001; n = 72)
Adults: - 0.41% (p< 0.001; n = 81)
Children using continuous glucose monitoring missed significantly less school days (51.9 vs. 183 days/100 pt years). Subjects performed significantly fewer SMBG during the Sensor On period (daily median 4.9 vs. 5.5).
Effect of sensor-augmented insulin pump therapy and automated insulin suspension vs standard insulin pump therapy on hypoglycemia in patients with type 1 diabetes: a randomized clinical trial
Ly TT et al. JAMA. 2013 Sep 25;310(12):1240-7.
Benefits of Low Glucose Suspend
Purpose & design:
RCT comparing the rates of severe hypoglycaemia (coma/seizure) in patients using CSII versus Sensor Augmented Pump therapy with the Low Glucose Suspend feature ON over a 6 month period in 95 children and adults with impaired hypo awareness.
Significant reduction in the number of severe hypoglycaemic events from 21.9 to 0.0 events/100pt-yrs (low glucose suspend-On group)vs. 24.8 to 26.7 events/100 pt-yrs in the CSII group (p=0.017)
Significant reduction in exposure to glucose values below 70mg/dl and 60mg/dl in the low glucose suspend group compared to control (p=0.006 and p=0.009 respectively)
Reduced fear of hypoglycaemia was shown in the low glucose suspend group
