Aims To review the glycaemic control of type 1 diabetic patients attending the paediatric and transition adolescent diabetes clinic within NHS Lanarkshire during the coronavirus pandemic. Methods A quantitative analysis of 348 patients attending the paediatric and transition adolescent diabetes clinics within NHS Lanarkshire was carried out. Data collected included age, sex, date of diagnosis and insulin delivery device. Comparing these measures to the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation (SIMD) of the patient. Patient data was anonymised within a single data collection sheet. Results 94% of patients across both clinics (n=298) attended a consultation during lockdown, before returning to school in August. Within the paediatric diabetes clinic, results from 199 patients were analysed. 30.65% (n=61) patients experienced a rise in their HbA1c over lockdown whilst 65.32% (n=130) of patients reduced their HbA1c. In this cohort, the mean HbA1c before lockdown compared to after lockdown was 3.77mmol/mol (95% CI 1.93, 5.61;P=0.000). 90 sets of patient data were analysed from the transition adolescent diabetes clinic. 27.78% (n=25) of patients had a rise in their HbA1c and whilst patients from this clinic gained tighter glycaemic control over lockdown. The mean HbA1c pre-lockdown compared to post-lockdown in this clinic reduced by 4.67mmol/mol (CI: +1.35, +7.99, P= 0.006). Patients residing in SIMD quintiles 3-5 had the greatest improvement in HbA1c over lockdown. Conclusion Glycaemic control of patients within the NHS Lanarkshire paediatric diabetes clinics improved over lockdown. There was a mean reduction in HbA1c over the lockdown period. Repeating this audit in a year would be beneficial to see how returning to school and further local lockdowns affected the glycaemic control of paediatric patients.
