Description of intervention(s) / exposure
This is a retrospective cohort study that does not involve participant recruitment/enrollment. Data collection will be from electronic medical records of clinical data routinely collected as part of clinical care.

Clinic data obtained as part of patient follow-up will be collected from the electronic medical record of people commenced on insulin pump therapy compared to people provided with standard care which is a formalised training in insulin dose adjustment (FlexIt Program). People included are those where commencement of insulin pump therapy or the FlexIt program was between 2000 and 2011. Clinic data will be collected from the time of commencement of nsulin pump therapy or the FlexIt program to December 2016 which is the end of follow-up..

Clinical outcome data that will be extracted includes:
1. demographic information – age and gender, duration of diabetes
2. glycemic control (HbA1c)
3. diabetes renal complications (albuminuria and eGFR) and cardiovascular risk factors (SBP and DBP, lipid profile (total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, triglycerides, weight)
4. utilization of health care resources and appropriate technical and practical use of insulin pump therapy (as determined from insulin pump data uploaded to computer on clinic visits)

Summary
Brief summary
Insulin pump therapy is a potential long-term treatment options in patients with type 1 diabetes not achieving optimal glycemic control. Compared to standard care insulin pump therapy is expensive and requires high levels of medical and patient input, and its use in Australia is rapidly increasing. Despite this the potential long-term effects of insulin pump therapy in patients with type 1 diabetes in comparison with standard of care is poorly documented, with no studies published with more than 5 years of follow-up.

The aim of this study is to review long term (5 to 16 years) follow-up clinic data relating to clinical outcomes (glycemic control, hypoglycaemia, weight, clinical service utilisation) between 2000 and 2016 of people commenced on insulin pump therapy compared to standard care which is people who have undergone formalised training in insulin dose adjustment (FlexIt Program) between 2000 and 2011..

We intend to provide “real life” long term data to examine the efficacy and costs of on insulin pump therapy compared to modern standard care.
