T1 SUPPORT FOR GPS

New research surveys released by medical device company Abbott have

revealed the impact of childhood Type 1 diabetes (T1D) on the emotional

and mental health of children and their families in the UK. The research,

undertaken both before and during the COVID-19 pandemic, sought to

examine the impact of T1D on the mental health of children and their families.

The first study, which spanned six countries including the UK, surveyed

parents, carers and their children before the pandemic, while the second

aimed to understand the effects of lockdown in this population. Before the

COVID-19 pandemic, this survey found that almost half (44%) of UK parents

and carers believe their child has issues with mental health due to their T1D

diagnosis. In addition, the research found half of UK parents and carers of

children with T1D reported that their child become more anxious following

their diagnosis.

In a more recent survey, conducted in October 2020, nearly half of

parents and carers reported that they think their child is more anxious as a

result of the pandemic. Around three quarters are also more worried about

their child's T1D due to fear of the virus. However, some respondents (33%)

reported that living with T1D helped their child cope better with lockdown

restrictions. Douglas Twenefour, deputy head of care at Diabetes UK

commented, "We know that diabetes is a relentless condition that can be

both a physical and mental challenge. The diagnosis and management of

Type 1 diabetes can be overwhelming for an adult during normal times, so

we can only imagine the additional pressures a child or adolescent currently

has to face during a global pandemic. That is why it is so important to talk

about how you feel and get professional support."

TIME IN RANGERS

Partly in response to this survey, Abbott has published

the first two in a series of fun, educational, and colourful

e-books designed as an aid for healthcare professionals

and carers to help them to introduce topics when

talking to young children who have diabetes. The stories

feature the characters Jumpy Grasshopper (Above

Target Ranger), Super Steady (In Target Ranger) and

Go Low Monster (Below Target Ranger) and include

games and quizzes. The resources are available as part

of Abbott's free online FreeStyle Libre Academy.

Supermarkets in England will be

banned from displaying unhealthy

food and drinks at checkouts or

using them in buy one, get one

free offers as part of a proposed

government crackdown on obesity.

Subject to consultation, checkout

restrictions will apply to other salesboosting

spots, such as store

entrances or the end of aisles. This

extends to websites, banning sales links to unhealthy

foods on homepages, or at checkout or payment

pages. In addition, restaurants will not be able to offer

free sugary drink refills. The rules around promotions

on bulk-buy offers on high-fat or high-sugar food and

drinks would only apply to larger retailers with 50 or

more employees. The limits on where unhealthy foods

can be located apply to shops over more than 2,000

sq feet, with exemptions for specialist retailers like

chocolate shops.

The restrictions are due to start April 2022.

CHECKOUTS

CHECKED OUT

A once-weekly basal insulin is in development to help treat Type 2 diabetes.

Researchers suggest that reducing the frequency of basal insulin injections

might help treatment acceptance and adherence among people with the

condition. The insulin icodec, by Novo Nordisk, shows comparable efficacy

and safety to once-daily insulin glargine U100 after a 26-week randomised

phase 2 trial involving 247 participants who had not previously received

long-term insulin treatment and whose Type 2 diabetes was inadequately

controlled. Results were published in the New England Journal of Medicine.
