What is the purpose of this trial?
Determine the impact of frequent hypoglycemia and hypoglycemia unawareness on brain responses to visual food cues as well as brain functional connectivity in T1DM patients. Aim 2: Assess the impact of antecedent bouts of hypoglycemia on brain glucose transport/metabolism during hyperglycemia in T1DM Unaware, T1DM Aware as well as healthy controls using 1H, 13C magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS). Aim 3: Determine if reducing hypoglycemia and glycemic variability using closed loop insulin delivery reverses altered brain glucose transport/metabolism and functional connectivity in hypoglycemia unaware T1DM patients.
