HbA1cs FALL IN LOCKDOWN

According to researchers, blood sugar levels in young people with

Type 1 diabetes improved during Britain's first national lockdown

in 2020.

The team compared how well 180 children and teens in two UK

communities controlled their Type 1 diabetes in the 12 weeks before

and after the lockdown began on March 23, 2020. A significant

improvement was found in blood glucose levels after the start of the

lockdown. Average long-term blood sugar measurement (HbA1c) fell,

and blood sugar readings more often in the range that researchers

asked them to achieve (3.9-10mmol/l).

lead researcher Dr Neil Lawrence of Sheffield Children's Hospital

NHS Foundation Trust. "Children and families found it easier to

manage when they were forced to stay at home. This helps us to

understand the pressure that is put on patients and families when

trying to live normal busy lives with activities outside of the home,"

said "This gives us important insights into where advice, education

and support should be directed."

The study was presented virtually at the Endocrine Society's annual

meeting held in March 2021.

CGM and DRIVING

While the use of flash glucose monitoring grows

in popularity, Group 2 (lorry and bus) licence

users are being warned that this method is not

recognised by DVLA when reviewing their blood

sugar levels.

There are currently 1,428 drivers with Type 1

diabetes who hold a Group 2 driving licence, who

must submit three months' worth of blood glucose

readings for their independent assessment. This

must be recorded on a blood glucose monitor,

through finger-prick tests - flash glucose

monitoring is not recognised for driving purposes

for Group 2 licence holders. Group 2 drivers must

continue to finger-prick test twice a day by law

even when they do not drive.

If Group 2 drivers use flash, DVLA guidance

recommends that these individuals must also

continue to test finger-prick glucose for driving

purposes. In addition, some of these drivers are

also being denied test strips by their GPs, unaware

of the DVLA guidance.

The Association of British Clinical

Diabetologists urges this guidance to be made

clear to people accessing and prescribing flash

glucose monitoring.

NEW

GLUCAGON JAB

A new emergency glucagon treatment is

to become available in the United States

from June 2021. Zegalogue - also known

as dasiglucagon injection - was recently

approved by the FDA to treat severe hypos

in people with diabetes over the age of six.

Trials found that taking Zegalogue (0.6mg)

during a severe hypoglycemia episode

can raise blood glucose levels by at least

20mg/dl - considered a recovery stage

- within about 10 minutes. Traditional

rescue glucagon injections can take 30-45

minutes. Almost all adults in the trial (99%

of participants) recovered and returned to

non-hypoglycaemic blood glucose levels

within 15 minutes of taking Zegalogue. To

TOGETHER, BETTER

Approximately 9 in 10 specialists agree that people with Type

2 diabetes whose healthcare professionals (HCPs) collaborate

tend to have better outcomes than those whose HCPs do not,

while the top barrier to more collaboration among specialists

is lack of time.

The findings are from a survey of 1,000 US healthcare

professionals, conducted by The Harris Poll on behalf of

Boehringer Ingelheim and Eli Lilly and Company, as part of

the Unleashing the Truth About Diabetes and Heart Disease

campaign, which aims to increase awareness of the role of

specialists in the treatment of diabetes and related chronic

conditions and promote multidisciplinary collaboration.

When it comes to treating people with Type 2 diabetes,

approximately two in five HCPs say they would like to

collaborate more often with other professionals. The majority

(80% of nurse practitioners, 79% of nephrologists, 73% of

endocrinologists, 69% of primary care physicians and 63% of

cardiologists) agree they would call another specialist to help

treat these patients if they had the resources.

To facilitate improved collaboration and save time among

healthcare professionals, Boehringer Ingelheim and Lilly

have created a downloadable checklist that provides tips and

helpful reminders on making multidisciplinary care a reality

among specialty groups, available on unleashingthetruth.com.
