  1. Data are present as CV (%)
  2. Coefficient of variation was calculated using the equation SD/\(\bar{x}\) of SMBG in different points (fasting or postprandial)
  3. Levine F test was used to access the difference between CVs
  4. Significance was found in the CSII group concerning FPG in the first and PBG in the third trimester measuring the CV of SMBG
  5. Comparisons in boldface type indicate significant differences (p < 0.05)
  6. FPG fasting plasma glucose, PBG postprandial breakfast glucose, PLG postprandial lunch glucose, PDG postprandial dinner glucose
