NEW NUTRITION GUIDELINES

FROM DIABETES UK

PACKAGES FOR SELF-FUNDING

MEDTRONIC CGM

Diabetes UK, has published new nutrition

guidelines to help people with diabetes and

those at risk of Type 2 diabetes to better

manage their diet. The evidence-based

guidelines, reflect recent research advances

and provide nutrition recommendations to

better enable HCPs in supporting adults with

diabetes, and those at risk of Type 2 diabetes.

For the first time the guidelines outline

how people with Type 2 diabetes might be

able to achieve remission. This guidance has

been added after the first year results of the

Diabetes UK-funded study called DiRECT,

suggested that Type 2 diabetes remission

can occur with significant weight loss.

The guidelines outline consistently

strong evidence that suggests eating certain

foods can help reduce the risk of Type 2

diabetes, can manage blood glucose levels

in people with Type 2 diabetes, and reduce

the risk of cardiovascular disease in people

with diabetes. These suggested foods

include vegetables, fruits, wholegrains,

fish, nuts and pulses (along the lines

of the 'Mediterranean diet') and eating

less red and processed meat, less

refined carbohydrates and fewer

sugar-sweetened beverages, is also

recommended.

Deputy Head of Care at Diabetes

UK, and co-chair of the guidelines

group, Douglas Twenefour, explains,

"There is not a one-size-fits all approach

when it comes to making food choices,

so these new guidelines take this into

account. It is important that people

with diabetes, and those at risk, are

supported to choose the right foods

for them to help them to achieve their

specific treatment goals and improve

their health and quality of life."

There are two new CGM Packages available

for Medtronic insulin pump patients who do

not have sensors funded for them, one is

called Complete Package, the other is the

Lite Package. Both allow you to purchase

sensors at a reduced price.

The Complete Package is for anyone

using sensors all of the time, and the Lite

Package for anyone using them frequently

but not necessarily full time.

If you commit to orDering sensors for a

year then you can order your sensors using

a discount special code. Your discount

entitles you to purchase boxes of five

sensors at £210 per box, a 24% discount

from standard price of £275 per box. Under

this package you also have the opportunity

to purchase a replacement Transmitter for

the special price of £100 should you need

a new one.

If you are not necessarily using

sensors continuously with this package

you can still order your sensors using

a discount special code. Your discount

entitles you to purchase boxes of five

sensors at £236 per box which is a

14% discount from the standard price

of £275 per box.

Terms and Conditions apply.

Members of the existing Silver, Gold

and Platinum Advanced Protection

Loyalty Schemes will be contacted

regarding these in due course but

should continue to order as normal

under these schemes for now.
