Study Summary

Diabetes mellitus (DM) affects roughly 8% of pregnancies and is associated with significant perinatal and maternal morbidity. Current obstetric practice is complicated by the emergence of the SARS-COV-2 pandemic, resulting in morbidity and mortality secondary to complications of COVID-19. Care coordination among the teams caring for women admitted for antepartum, intrapartum, and postpartum care with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 is required to conserve PPE and minimize staff exposure. The investigators propose a pilot proof of concept randomized study to evaluate the utility of Dexcom-G6 continuous glucose monitors for assessment of glycemic control in pregnant and postpartum women with insulin-requiring diabetes mellitus during hospitalizations, as a proof of concept in the efforts to reduce the number of point of care glucose tests needed, reduce staff exposure, and conserve PPE use.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
