In this review the use of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in pregnancy complicated by type 1 and type 2 diabetes is examined. Fourteen relevant articles were identified. Observational studies demonstrated that CGM was feasible during pregnancy without severe side effects. One randomised controlled trial resulted in improved metabolic control and reduced risk of macrosomia in women randomised to CGM. Future studies on the use of CGM in pregnancy are awaited with interest.
