Let's continue on the CGM discussion. We all agree that CGM provides useful information to our standard fingerstick glucose monitoring and A1c surveillance. Evaluating the trends prior to and after fingerstick glucose readings helps clinicians to adjust insulin for much tighter glycemic control- trends that may not have been detected with pre and post meal checks alone. The findings in this study are highlighting the potential advantages of such tight control on fetal growth. If we are moving toward offering CGM for all type 1 DM women as the authors suggest, do we change the number of fingerstick glucose checks to less than eight per day on women who are on CGM? Is there more value in CGM data and less fingerstick checks per day?
