Background: The aim of this multicenter observational real-world study was to investigate glycemic outcomes in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes over the first 6-month use of MiniMed (TM) 780G. The secondary objective was to evaluate demographic and clinical factors that may be significantly associated with the achievement of therapeutic goals.Methods: Demographic, anamnestic, and clinical data of study participants were collected at the time of enrollment.

Aggregated glucose metrics and device settings of the entire study period were analyzed to identify predictors of optimal glycemic control, assessed by the concomitant achievement of time in range (TIR) >70%, coefficient of variation (CV) <36%, glucose management indicator (GMI) <7%, and time below range (TBR) Results: Our study cohort consisted of 111 children and adolescents (54.1% female) aged 7-18 years.

Abstract

Background: The aim of this multicenter observational real-world study was to investigate glycemic outcomes in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes over the first 6-month use of MiniMed (TM) 780G. The secondary objective was to evaluate demographic and clinical factors that may be significantly associated with the achievement of therapeutic goals.Methods: Demographic, anamnestic, and clinical data of study participants were collected at the time of enrollment. Data on ambulatory glucose profile were acquired at 3 and 6 months after activating automatic mode. Aggregated glucose metrics and device settings of the entire study period were analyzed to identify predictors of optimal glycemic control, assessed by the concomitant achievement of time in range (TIR) >70%, coefficient of variation (CV) <36%, glucose management indicator (GMI) <7%, and time below range (TBR) Results: Our study cohort consisted of 111 children and adolescents (54.1% female) aged 7-18 years. All the most relevant clinical targets were achieved according to recommendations from the International Consensus both at 3 and 6 months. When considering aggregated data, primary goals in terms of TIR, CV, GMI, and TBR were achieved, respectively, by 72.1%, 74.8%, 68.5%, and 74.8% of participants. In addition, 44 individuals (39.6%) concomitantly addressed all the above clinical targets. Regression analysis revealed that older age, briefer duration of disease, and shorter active insulin time were significant predictors of optimal glucose control. Comparing two groups of individuals stratified according to the glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) mean value in the year preceding MiniMed 780G use, achieving glycemic targets was observed in the subgroup with lower HbA1c.Conclusions: Our study highlights the effectiveness and safety of MiniMed 780G in the pediatric population. More extensive and personalized training on advanced hybrid closed-loop use should be considered for younger people and those with long disease duration.
