Insulin Delivery and Glucose Monitoring Methods for Diabetes Mellitus: Comparative Effectiveness

Slide: 23 of 25

Knowledge Gaps and Future Research Needs (3 of 3)

Several studies excluded individuals with comorbidities such as impaired liver and renal function, microvascular complications, cardiovascular disease, mental disorders, recent severe hypoglycemia, or other chronic medical conditions, thereby limiting the applicability of the results to similar populations or to the entire population.

The shortcomings and gaps identified in this review highlight the need for future studies that are large, include participants of all age groups and ethnicities, and have a long followup period. Future studies should also use uniform outcome measures that include measures of vascular complications and quality of life. Additionally, future studies focusing on pregnant women with pre-existing type 1 and type 2 diabetes should be conducted.
