SAN DIEGO — A hybrid-closed loop insulin control system used in children with type 1 diabetes was safe for both overall and overnight control and resulted in no severe hypoglycemic episodes, according to a speaker here. “There’s a lot of work being done now on hybrid closed-loop systems. Hybrid means that it will modulate the basal amount of insulin throughout the day as well as night,” Bruce A. Buckingham, MD, a professor in the department of pediatrics, division of endocrinology and diabetes, Stanford University, said during his presentation. “We have done previous studies with this OmniPod system, testing it in adults and adolescents, so we wanted to move into the pediatric range where kids are often more sensitive to insulin and they have more variability in their glucose levels.”
