Abstract

It is vital to address strategies to minimise hypoglycaemia; a well-recognised concern in individuals with Type 1 diabetes. This research project first identified the burden of significant hypoglycaemia in a population-based cohort of adolescents in Western Australia and demonstrated that although the prevalence has reduced, it continues to be a concern. This was followed by randomised multicentre clinical trials under in-clinic conditions and free-living home studies which established the safety and efficacy of a technological intervention (Predictive Low Glucose Management System) in hypoglycaemia prevention. Continued education and support are vital to ensure optimal technology use in adolescents with diabetes.
