Translating HbA1c measurements into estimated average glucose values in pregnant women with diabetes

The HbA1c–average glucose relationship is altered by pregnancy. Routinely generated standard estimated average glucose values do not account for this difference between pregnant and non-pregnant individuals and, thus, should not be used during pregnancy. Instead, the pregnancy-specific estimated average glucose values deduced in the current study are recommended for antenatal clinical care.

Closed-loop for type 1 diabetes – an introduction and appraisal for the generalist

Rapid progress over the past decade has been made with the development of the ‘Artificial Pancreas’, or closed-loop system. The recent FDA approval of the first hybrid closed-loop system makes the Artificial Pancreas a realistic therapeutic option for people with type 1 diabetes. In anticipation of its advent into clinical care, the authors provide a primer and appraisal of this novel therapeutic approach in type 1 diabetes for healthcare professionals and non-specialists in the field.
