results from this device can now be used

directly by patients to make diabetes

treatment decisions without confirmation

from a traditional fingerstick test."

Proof of positive impact of CGM for

diabetics on injections has been shown

via the DIaMonD study (Multiple Daily

Injections and Continuous Glucose

Monitoring in Diabetes), the first-of-itskind study that demonstrated the impact

of CGM on HbA1c and hypoglycemia in

participants on a multiple daily injection

(MDI) insulin regimen.

Published in January 2017 in Journal

of the American Medical Association

(JAMA), the study showed Dexcom

CGM System users on MDI achieved

a 1% average reduction in HbA1c after

24 weeks of regular use. In addition to

better glucose control, participants also

increased time spent in target range and

spent less time in hypo and hyperglycemia

when they used a Dexcom CGM system,

compared to those who used only a

standard meter to monitor their glucose.

There was a 49% reduction in time spent

in hypo (less than 3.9 mmol/L), a 53%

reduction in time spent at less than 3.3

mmol/L and a 69% reduction in time

spent at less than 2.8 mmol/L.

The study also dispelled certain

perceptions, such as CGM being

too complicated to use, as patients

demonstrated significant HbA1c

reductions regardless of education level,

maths ability, or age. A high level of

adherence was also achieved with 93%

of patients still using the Dexcom CGM

system more than at the end of the study.

Back in the US, Dexcom has recently

announced that it will be working with

health-wear providers Fitbit so that its

CGM users will be able to see CGM

data on Fitbit's newest item, the Ionic

Smartwatch, providing a convenient and

discreet way to track glucose levels on

wrist for users of both Android and iOS

devices to help people better manage their

diabetes and get a more complete picture

of their overall health with easy-to-use

mobile tools. "The collaboration between

Dexcom and Fitbit is an important step

in providing useful information to people

with diabetes that is both convenient and

discreet," said Kevin Sayer, President

and CEO, Dexcom. In addition to the

Dexcom CGM display for Fitbit Ionic, with

Fitbit's in-app Community, Dexcom CGM

users ought to be able to connect with

millions of people with whom they can

ask questions, seek support and share

successes in managing their health. The

companies are targeting availability as

soon as possible in 2018.
