study published in BMC Pediatrics found that the utilization of telehealth devices, such as continuous glucose monitors (CGMs), helped providers continue to care for children with type 1 diabetes as the COVID-19 pandemic upended health care delivery. Between 2019 and 2020, outpatient visits decreased among pediatric type 1 diabetics with commercial insurance, but not those with non-commercial insurance. Researchers concluded that increased adoption of continuous glucose monitors and extensive use of telemedicine visits may have ameliorated the impact of the pandemic on disease management.
