GUIDE TO T1 TECHNOLOGY

Written by INPUT with advice from

Diabetes UK and JDRF, this Type 1

Technology guide provides a summary

of NICE recommendations on diabetes

technology, the strength of the

recommendation within the guidance,

and how to access different technologies.

There are two Type 1 technology

guides, one for children and young

adults, and a separate one for adults (as

the guidance differs).

JDRF IS 30!

Her Royal Highness The Duchess of

Cornwall has joined scientists, supporters

and volunteers from type 1 diabetes

charity JDRF to highlight life-changing

new treatments and to support the

charity's ongoing mission to find the cure.

She spoke of her support of the charity

and of her great pleasure of meeting UKbased scientists, funded by JDRF,

and

hearing about their exciting work. The

occasion formed part of JDRF's events

to mark the 30 year anniversary of its

UK origins and to thank every one of its

supporters across the country.

The Duchess of Cornwall, who is

President of JDRF in the UK, was joined

by the Prime Minister, Theresa May, who

was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in

2013. The event (on 26 October) was

hosted by the Lord Mayor of the City of

London, Lord Mountevans. The Lord

Mayor chose JDRF as a beneficiary

charity of this year's Lord Mayor's Appeal.

The three decades of JDRF in the UK

have seen it successfully fund and support

the emergence of several life-changing

new Type 1 diabetes treatments including

new insulin pumps, artificial pancreas

technologies and blood glucose-reading

devices. Further research progress has

seen human trials begin on 'glucose

responsive' insulins which could eliminate

forever the threat of dangerous hypos

as well as a breakthrough discovery in

2014 of a way to create human insulinproducing

cells in vast numbers from

stem cells.

In her speech the Duchess of Cornwall

said, "I know that everyone at JDRF is

looking forward in the hope that a cure for

this devastating disease will be found in

the not too distant future."

Karen Addington, Chief Executive of

JDRF in the UK, paid tribute to researchers

and healthcare professionals involved with

research and treatment across the UK, as

well as individuals who have run, swam,

walked miles and done countless other

things to raise funds to support type 1

diabetes research saying, "Here at JDRF

we never lose sight of the ultimate goal

of finding the cure and creating a world

without Type 1 diabetes."

Prime Minister Theresa May added, "I

am proud to support the important work

of JDRF and it was a pleasure to join

scientists, supporters and volunteers as

they celebrate this important milestone."
