The Australasian Diabetes in Pregnancy Society (ADIPS) held their annual scientific meeting over the weekend in Adelaide.

It was very excited to be at this meeting to present our cost analysis on the impact of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) on perinatal costs and outcomes in pregnant women with type 1 diabetes.

This analysis looks at how the clinical outcomes reported in the CONCEPTT trial (Feig 2017) translate into health economic outcomes for the Australian healthcare system – and was conducted to inform decisions about expanding funding for CGM.

We hope the presentation generates lots of discussion and, most importantly, action to expand subsidised access to CGM to include the high-risk population of pregnant women with type 1 diabetes.
