The Effectiveness of Continuous Glucose Monitoring in Diabetes Treatment for Infants and Young Children
Gerber Pump Trial: Effectiveness of Continuous Subcutaneous Insulin Infusion (CSII) and Real-Time Sensor Augmentation (RTSA) in 0-3 Years Old Diabetes Patients; A One Year Randomized Controlled Clinical Trial.
The purpose of this study is to see if the use of a real-time glucose sensor improves diabetes control in young children (less than 4 years old) with Type I diabetes when they are initiated on insulin pump therapy.
A randomized controlled clinical trial involving patients 0-3 yrs old with type 1 diabetes. After successful screening the subjects will be randomized into one of two groups: a CSII group alone and a CSII group + Real Time Sensor Augmentation group (RTSA) group. The CSII group will serve as the control for the CSII+RTSA group. The trial will last for one year.
