ABSTRACT

The objective of this paper is to assess if real-time intermittent Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) helps to improve the control of glycemic and outcome of pregnancy in women with diabetes. A total of 123 women with type 1 diabetes and 31 women with type 2 diabetes respectively were used at random in the Continuous Glucose Monitoring for a total of 6 days at different stages of pregnancy. Results revealed that intermittently using real-time Continuous Glucose Monitoring in pregnancy plus plasma glucose which is self-monitored does not really help to improve the control of glycemic or outcome of pregnant women with diabetes.
