LESS BURDEN WITH PUMP

DIABETES TECH VIDEO SERIES

Trial data reveals that children with Type 1 diabetes using a hybrid

closed-loop system [the Tandem t:Slim, pictured] and their parents do

not report an increase in diabetes-related burden than those using a

sensor-augmented insulin pump.

Erin C Cobry, an assistant professor of paediatrics at the Barbara

Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes, University of Colorado Anschutz

Medical Campus, and colleagues found no significant differences in

hypoglycaemia fear, diabetes-related stress and other self-reported

outcomes for trial participants using a t:slim X2 insulin pump with

Control-IQ technology (Tandem Diabetes Care) compared with

participants using their own insulin pump or a provided t:slim X2

insulin pump with predictive low-glucose suspend feature.

"Advancements in diabetes therapies offer ways to improve

diabetes outcomes and reduce long-term complications; however,

these advancements cannot come at the expense of the quality of

life of the child and family," Cobry told specialty clinical information

website Healio. "Therefore, it is very important that ease of use

and quality of life are part of the evaluation of novel therapies for

type 1 diabetes. The results of this study

indicate that hybrid closed-loop systems

can successfully be used for glycaemic

improvement without creating increased

burden on children with type 1 diabetes or

their parents."

A new series of videos on the selfmonitoring

of blood glucose has

been published by the Association

of British Clinical Diabetologists

(ABCD). The Diabetes Technology

Network (DTN-UK Education)

provides education to healthcare

professionals and people with

diabetes to help them make the best

use of diabetes technology.

While much focused on insulin

pumps, CGM and flash glucose

monitoring in recent years, the DTN

does still cover the relatively oldfangled

tech that is the blood test

meter, which is just as well as the

vast majority of people with diabetes

are still using meters (also referred

to as blood glucose monitors

or systems).

Presenting this series about selfmonitoring

of blood glucose (SMBG),

Mark Evans, Reader in Diabetic

Medicine, Institute of Metabolic

Science and Department of

Medicine, University of Cambridge,

explains, "There is much to be gained

from blood glucose monitoring, it

does not have to be via CGM. In this

series of videos we go through the

basics. We hope that these are a good

resource not just for anyone new to

blood glucose testing but also serve

as a refresher for anyone who's been

doing it a while."

The new series covers

interpreting data, adjusting bolus

and basal doses, and useful apps

and resources.
