A recent randomized controlled trial has shown that patients with type 1 diabetes mellitus who are treated with multiple daily insulin injections and continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) enjoy a further improvement in glycaemic control when switched to insulin pump therapy with CGM. However, some increase in biochemical hypoglycaemia was evident with pump treatment.
