Activation of “suspend before low” in the Medtronic PLGM algorithm stops insulin delivery when sensor glucose (SG) is predicted to reach or fall below a preset low glucose limit in 30min. Basal insulin delivery automatically resumes once the algorithm detects an increasing SG trend. We evaluated the “suspend before low” feature of the MiniMed™ 670G with SmartGuard™ technology in children with T1D. Participants (N=105, aged 7-13 years) underwent an overnight in-clinic evaluation. Hypoglycemia was defined as 2 or more consecutive events of YSI or fingerstick blood glucose reference values ≤65 mg/dL (≤3.6 mmol/L). Children had exercise in the afternoon, no increase in basal insulin delivery, and were not in Auto Mode. Of the 1experiments, there were 79 with PLGM activation. Hypoglycemia was prevented 79.7% of the time (63/79). Mean duration of a suspension was 85.6±32.4min. The Table shows mean reference glucose values with respect to the start of automated insulin suspension and resumption, as well as 2 and 4 hours after insulin resumption. Rates of change (ROC) at insulin suspension and resumption start are also shown. All were evaluated by TDD and duration of diabetes, and stratified in quartiles. The “suspend before low” feature of the MiniMed™ 670G system reduced hypoglycemia events without rebound hyperglycemia in children with T1D regardless of TDD or duration of diabetes.
