The use of CSII and CGM has increased considerably in the last years, particularly in people with T1D. The efficacy of CGM either as stand-alone or in combination with CSII has been proven in several randomised controlled trials. However, the real-life data form several large registries failed to demonstrate a considerable improvement in metabolic control, and even showed a deterioration in some cases. Therefore, new approaches are needed to bridge the gap between the data from RCTs and the clinical reality. The lecture will discuss possible ways to implement diabetes technology, also with the help of advisers, to successfully reach the new Time in Range Targets.
