ATTD Yearbook & More
In February 2020, organizers of the Advanced Technologies & Treatments for Diabetes (ATTD) Annual Conference convened an international panel of healthcare professionals, researchers, patient advocates, and industry representatives to review the status of digital diabetes technologies, characterize deficits in current technologies, and identify issues for consideration. Since that meeting, the importance of using telehealth and digital diabetes technologies has been demonstrated amid the global COVID-19 pandemic. This article summarizes the panel’s discussion of the opportunities, obstacles and requisites for advancing use of these technologies as a standard of care for the management of diabetes.

ATTD International Consensus Meetings on Time in Range (TIR) – BERLIN 2019
Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) is now increasingly used in routine clinical practice and is gaining appreciation from its users. With its broad use, novel parameters for a better definition of targets for successful metabolic control are available but a consensus between health care professionals and PwD on these parameters is lacking.
In February 2019 the ATTD convened a consensus meeting with an international panel of 30 key opinion leaders in order to establish appropriate settings for a broad and clinically viable consensus on Time in Range (TIR). These are now summarized in a publication in Diabetes Care.

ATTD International Consensus on the use of SGLT1&2 inhibitors in treating T1D – ORLANDO 2018
Recent study results show a significant clinical benefit of adjunct therapy with SGLT1&2 inhibitors in addition to insulin in type 1 diabetes. However, this is accompanied by slightly higher DKA rates than placebo in several studies.
In June 2018, the ATTD convened a consensus meeting with an international panel of 30 physicians and researchers with expertise in using SGLT-inhibitor therapy in order to find ways to mitigate DKA and euDKA risk. These are now summarized in a publication in Diabetes Care.

"Periodically,a new idea, method, or tool leads to a turning point in the Management of diabetes. We believe such a moment is now upon us, brought by the development of reliable devices for continuous glucose monitoring (CGM)."
- Editorial by Matthew C. Riddle, Hertzel C. Gerstein, and William T. Cefalu, Diabetes Care 2017;40:1611–1613.
At ATTD 2017, an international panel of physicians, researchers, and individuals with diabetes came together for a consensus meeting and addressed the issues around continuous glucose monitoring (CGM).
Even though CGM moves beyond HbA1c measurement, there are issues such as the lack of standardized metrics for analyzing CGM data, and no clear criteria for matching patients to most appropriate glucose monitoring methodologies.
Consensus recommendations and the current understanding of how CGM results can affect outcomes are now summarizes in a publication in Diabetes Care.
ATTD CONSENSUS STATEMENT on the use of Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) in the Pediatric age-group – PARIS 2011
The use of real-time continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) providing continuous glucose measurements became popular and helped PwD to optimize glycemic control and reduce the risk of hypoglycemia. Yet, the benefits of the current CGM systems have been more challenging to demonstrate, especially in pediatric patients.
In order to address these issues, ATTD, together with the European Society for Pediatric Endocrinology (ESPE), the Pediatric Endocrine Society (PES), and the International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD) convened a panel of expert physicians for a consensus conference.

Consensus Statement on the use of insulin pump therapy in the pediatric age group – BERLIN 2006
The Consensus meeting held in Berlin in April 2006 was organized by the Loop Club, which preceded the ATTD, together with European Society for Pediatric Endocrinology (ESPE), the Lawson Wilkins Pediatric Endocrine Society (LWPES), and the International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD) and endorsed by the American Diabetes Association (ADA) and the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD).
A panel of expert physicians discussed the advantages of the use of pump therapy in the pediatric age group.
