DEXCOM OFFER

Company: Dexcom

Product: G5 CGM

Screen: Receiver or smart phone

This is a stand-alone system that works

closely with some of the current insulin

pump systems, particularly Animas

pumps and the Omnipod system. With

quite a fan-base, Dexcom users claim it's

not only accurate but easier to wear than

other CGM options.

Following the decision by Johnson

& Johnson to cease to support insulin

pumps globally withdrawing its popular

Animas pump in the UK as well as

elsewhere, when it comes to choosing

their next pump at their next pump change,

Animas users may decide to move over to

a pump that also incorporates Dexcom to

keep that continuity.

With a relatively newly formed UK

company, Dexcom is starting to make

greater in-roads across the country

seeking to broaden the user base out

beyond those already on an insulin pump.

The positve impact of CGM for

diabetics on injections was shown via the

DIaMonD study (Multiple Daily Injections

and Continuous Glucose Monitoring in

Diabetes), the first-of-its-kind study that

demonstrated the impact of CGM on

HbA1c and hypoglycaemia in participants

on multiple daily injections (MDI).

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). 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.
