DRWF AND DPC SURVEY

Maggie Meer launched Diabetes

Professional Care (DPC) in 2015 to

provide the NHS with a free knowledge

platform to drive up standards of care

after Meer felt that she'd experienced

substandard care after her own diagnosis

of Type 2 diabetes.

Since its inception DPC has had a

close relationship with the charity Diabetes

Research & Wellness Foundation (DRWF).

The two organisations are currently

undertaking a nationwide survey, seeking

to gain intelligence from people with

diabetes to help DPC and DRWF push for

positive change in the NHS. The findings

will be used to shape the upcoming

conference for healthcare professionals

in October and help inform the future

direction the event takes. Additionally,

the results will also provide the fabric to

illuminate a People with Diabetes Wall at

DPC2019, which will share honest and

inspiring insights and experiences of care

and life with diabetes with healthcare

professionals.

participating has the chance to win one

A drug used to treat Type 2 diabetes has

now been recommended for use on the

NHS in certain groups of people with T!D.

Following approval for use across

Europe, dapagliflozin - the first of its

kind in Type 1 diabetes treatments - is

a once-a-day pill which, when used

alongside standard insulin therapy, could

significantly improve long-term health

outcomes for many people with the

condition. It's estimated that up to a third

of people with Type 1 in England and

Wales could be eligible for the drug.

In 2018, JDRF advised NICE that

dapagliflozin can offer substantial benefits

for people with Type 1 diabetes. It helps to

reduce blood glucose levels by stopping

the kidneys absorbing glucose into the

body and instead passed out in the

urine. Previous clinical trials showed that,

when used alongside insulin, the drug

helped to lower HbA1c levels without

increasing hypos.

The drug will only be offered as an

option to those who find managing blood

glucose levels challenging, but who

also have a)body mass index (BMI) over

27 and - amongst other criteria - are

aware of how to spot and treat diabetic

ketoacidosis (DKA). This is because some

side effects of the drug include weight

loss and increased risk of DKA.

LOW CARB

COMP

WINNERS

Three primary care organisations have

been announced as the joint winners

of a competition to enable healthcare

professionals to offer their patients with

Type 2 diabetes access to a behaviour

change platform.

Ascensia Diabetes Care launched

the competition during Diabetes Week to

give NHS organisations the chance to win

free licenses to the Low Carb Program -

the patient-centred diabetes behaviour

change platform used by over 400,000

people worldwide.

The Low Carb Program facilitates

sustainable weight loss and blood

glucose control through structured

education, resources and personalised

behaviour change support for people

living with Type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes

and obesity. In just under three months,

most people with Type 2 diabetes who

complete the programme improve their

blood glucose control whilst reducing or

eliminating prescription medication and

losing weight. After one year, data show

that 26% of patients with Type 2 diabetes

are in remission.

Now, around 200 patients from the

three successful NHS organisations will be

given access to the programme through

GP practices. The winning organisations

are: Frome Medical Practice (on behalf of

Your Health & Wellbeing collaboration of

three Primary Care Networks) in Frome,

Somerset; Park Medical Centre in London

and Freshwell Health Centre in Braintree,

Essex.
