Continuous glucose monitoring in pregnant women with diabetes

Authors' recomendations: The Minimed continuous glucose monitor (CGMS) provided greater resolution blood glucose level data compared to standard care. Some studies reported this to be useful in patient management decisions and may have facilitated better outcomes for both the mother and offspring. The efficacy of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) has been reported in the past. The widespread introduction of CGM of all pregnant women would not be recommended, however, of importance is identifying the subgroup of pregnant women who would benefit from CGM. More research needs to be conducted on identifying these women and therefore HealthPACT has recommended that this technology be monitored for further information in 12 months time.
