Brief Summary:

The DreaMed Advisor Pro is a software which automatically analyses treatment information, learns patient's needs and accordingly suggests adjustments in insulin dosing. DreaMed Advisor Pro is a decision- support software intended for assisting healthcare professionals in the management of type 1 diabetes patients who use insulin pumps as their insulin delivery therapy and monitor their blood glucose levels using CGM (Continuous Glucose Monitoring) or CGM and self-management blood glucose meter.

The main objective of the proposed study is to test the safety, reliability, and efficacy of the DreaMed Advisor Pro algorithm when the recommendation is sent directly to the patient without a physician review.

Participants will be randomized in a 1:1 ratio to either the intervention group (DreaMed Advisor Pro) or control group (standard of care). Participants will download the CGM and pump data at no less frequent than every 4 weeks for both groups during the 3 months period of the study.

Each time new data is received, the following actions will be performed:

In the intervention group, a new algorithm recommendation for pump settings will be issued. The recommendation will be approved by a technical, non-physician to assure that glucose data are not fall within predefined safety criteria which require a physician approval before the recommendation will be sent to the patient, otherwise, recommendation will be sent directly to the patient.

In the control group, if no safety criteria is met, it is the responsibility of the patient to contact his/her physician to advise on change of treatment. In case a safety issue has occured, the physician will contact the patient and change the pump settings.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: DreaMed Advisor Pro
Insulin pump settings (i.e, basal plan, correction factor, carbohydrate ratio and insulin activity time) will be adjusted using the DreaMed Advisor pro.
Device: DreaMed Advisor Pro
Insulin pump settings (i.e, basal plan, correction factor, carbohydrate ratio and insulin activity time) will be adjusted using the DreaMed Advisor Pro and sent directly to the patient

Active Comparator: Control group- medical guided recommendation
Insulin pump settings (i.e, basal plan, correction factor, carbohydrate ration and insulin activity time) will be adjusted by the medical team
Other: Medical guided recommendation
Insulin pump settings (i.e, basal plan, correction factor, carbohydrate ratio and insulin activity time) will be adjusted by the medical team according to standard of care

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of glucose readings within range of 70-180 mg/dl (3.9 to 10mmol/L) [ Time Frame: Final visit (week 12) ]
  2. Percentage of readings below 54 mg/dl (3.3 mmol/l) [ Time Frame: Final visit (week 12) ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. HbA1c [ Time Frame: Final visit (week 12) ]
  2. Diabetes treatment satisfaction questionnaire [ Time Frame: Final visit (week 12) ]
    The questionnaire contains 12-14 items (12 for the teens version and 14 for the parents version) the subscale for each items is from 0 to 6, and for most items the the higher the score, the greater the satisfaction with the treatment.Subscales are summed. More specific instruction for analysis are detailed in Diabetologia 52:(suppl 1) S397, Abstruct 1013 and in a document named "Summary of recommended scoring" by Prof. Bradley, University of London

  3. Percentage of glucose readings below 70 mg/dl (3.9 mmol/L) [ Time Frame: Final visit (week 12) ]
  4. Percentage of readings below 60 mg/dl (3.35mmol/L) [ Time Frame: Final visit (week 12) ]
  5. Percentage of readings above 180 mg/dl (10.0mmol/L) [ Time Frame: Final visit (week 12) ]
  6. percentage of readings above 250 mg/dl (13.9 mmol/L) [ Time Frame: Final visit (week 12) ]
  7. Area above the curve of glucose level of 180 mg/dl [ Time Frame: Final visit (week 12) ]
  8. Area above the curve of glucose level above180 mg/dl [ Time Frame: Final visit (week 12) ]
  9. Area under the curve of glucose level of 70 mg/dl [ Time Frame: Final visit (week 12) ]
  10. Area under the curve of glucose level below 70 mg/dl [ Time Frame: Final visit (week 12) ]
  11. Mean sensor blood glucose [ Time Frame: Final visit (week 12) ]
  12. Glucose variability measured by standard deviation [ Time Frame: Final visit (week 12) ]
  13. Number of recommendations sent to patient in the last 6 months prior to baseline and during intervention period [ Time Frame: Final visit (week 12) ]
  14. Number of recommendations for changes in settings per patient [ Time Frame: Final visit (week 12) ]
  15. Number of recommendations for changes in settings per iteration [ Time Frame: Final visit (week 12) ]
  16. Number of physician override Advisor recommendation [ Time Frame: Final visit (week 12) ]
