One of the key factors limiting the achievement of optimal glycaemic control particularly in the paediatric population with type 1 diabetes remains the burden of care in diabetes management. This body of work highlights some of the current challenges in diabetes management. It provides evidence how these challenges can be addressed using advances in diabetes technologies such as insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitoring systems and automated insulin delivery. It shows how specific clinical outcomes such as glycaemic control and hypoglycaemia awareness may improve and fear of hypoglycaemia can be reduced by the use of advances in diabetes technology.
