Reduction of Nocturnal Hypoglycemia and Hyperglycemia in the Home Using Predictive Algorithms, Pump Suspension, and Insulin Dosing in Children and Young Adolescents
Objective: to gain experience in children and younger adolescents with in-home use of an algorithm that will dose insulin to minimize projected hyperglycemia overnight in addition to suspending the pump if hypoglycemia is projected overnight and to obtain feasibility, safety, and initial efficacy data
Study Design: randomized controlled trial, with randomization on a night level within subject Patient Population: Youth 6.0 - <15 years old with type 1 diabetes treated with daily insulin therapy for at least one year and an insulin infusion pump for at least 6 months who have HbA1c < 10.0%.
Sample Size: 30 subjects
Study Duration and Visit Schedule: duration approximately 3 months, with preliminary run-in activities followed by up to 90 days spent in clinical trial phase of study; clinic visits at enrollment, following CGM and system assessment run-in phases, at start of clinical trial phase, at 21-day point of clinical trial phase, and after 42 nights of successful system use
Major Efficacy Outcomes:
- Primary: time in range (70-180 mg/dl, 3.9-10.0 mmol/L) overnight.
- Secondary: time spent in hypoglycemia (<70 mg/dl, 3.9 mmol/L) and time spent in hyperglycemia (>180 mg/dl, 10.0 mmol/L) overnight.
Major Safety Outcomes: CGM measures of hypo- and hyperglycemia, including morning blood glucose and mean overnight sensor glucose; adverse events including severe hypoglycemia and diabetic ketoacidosis

1. Clinical diagnosis of type 1 diabetes and using daily insulin therapy for at least one
year and an insulin infusion pump for at least 6 months The diagnosis of type 1
diabetes is based on the investigator's judgment; C peptide level and antibody
determinations are not required.
2. Age 6.0 to <15.0 years
3. HbA1c < 10.0%
- Measured with DCA2000 or equivalent device for assessing eligibility
- HbA1c measurements performed as part of usual clinical care within 2 weeks prior
to obtaining informed consent for participation in the trial may be used.
4. Uninterrupted internet access while study system is being used overnight and for
upload of study data in the morning
5. Living with a family member/guardian ("companion") committed to participating in all
study activities, and being present and available to provide assistance when the
system is being used at night
6. An understanding of and willingness to follow the protocol and sign the informed
1. Diabetic ketoacidosis in the past 6 months
2. Hypoglycemic seizure or loss of consciousness in the past 6 months
3. History of seizure disorder (except for hypoglycemic seizure)
4. History of any heart disease including coronary artery disease, heart failure, or
5. Cystic fibrosis
6. Current use of oral/inhaled glucocorticoids, beta-blockers or other medications, which
in the judgment of the investigator would be a contraindication to participation in
7. History of ongoing renal disease (other than microalbuminuria). Creatinine level must
have been obtained within the last year if subject has diabetes of >10 years duration.
If creatinine is > 1.5 mg/dL (132 µmol/L), the subject is excluded.
8. Medical or psychiatric condition that in the judgment of the investigator might
interfere with the completion of the protocol such as:
- Inpatient psychiatric treatment in the past 6 months
- Uncontrolled adrenal disorder
- Abuse of alcohol
9. Pregnancy (Negative urine pregnancy test required for females who have experienced
menarche as well as agreement from subject and parent/guardian to use a form of
contraception to prevent pregnancy while participant is in the study. Subjects who
become pregnant will be discontinued from the study)
10. Liver disease as defined by an ALT greater than 3 times the upper limit of normal
