Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to compare glucose control, quality of life and number of hypoglycemias in preschool children before and after using a real-time glucosensor. Nocturnal hypoglycemia can be missed even when the parents check their children's blood glucose several times at night. The investigators hypothesise that nocturnal hypoglycemia can be prevented by using the sensor in this age group. As a consequence, quality of life of the families will improve. The investigators also hypothesise that diabetes control will improve at 3-6 months from the beginning of the study.

Drug Information available for: Dextrose

Intervention Details:
  • Device: Guardian RT
    The sensor is inserted similarly to the insulin pump. It measures sub cutaneous glucose every 5 minutes. It alerts of high and low glucose levels, according to set limits.
    Other Name: Real-time continuous glucose monitoring

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. HbA1C [ Time Frame: Start of study, after 3 months, after 6 months ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Quality of life [ Time Frame: Before and after connecting to sensor ]
  2. Number of night hypoglycemias [ Time Frame: During 2 weeks before connecting to sensor, during connection and 3 montjs after disconnecting ]
  3. Mean glucose level [ Time Frame: During the first week of connecting to sensor and during the last week of connecting ]
