SMART PREVENTION OF HYPOS

BRIGHT IDEA

A quarter of travellers to short-haul

destinations believe 'the insects there don't

carry diseases' but as Brits up and down

the country prepare for the holiday season,

Jungle Formula is reminding consumers to

purchase an insect repellent for their shorthaul travel as mosquitos are

capable of

carrying Zika, Dengue and Chikungunya

fever have recently been more prevalent

even in European countries.

LITTLE SQUIRT

Adam Brown is a fellow person with

diabetes, Senior Editor at diaTribe.org,

and author of Bright Spots & Landmines:

The Diabetes Guide I Wish Someone Had

Handed Me.

His book has reached over 50,000

people since publication just over a year

ago, mainly in the USA where he and the

DiaTribe organisation are based. He has

just published an edition of the book in a

format more suited to the UK (featuring the

way we measure blood tests over here in

mmols/L). The entire book (not just a teaser)

is available as a free download from diatribe

(www.diatribe.org/brightspotsuk), or you

can chose to pay £5 on Amazon UK with

the money going back into DiaTribe

(www.amazon.co.uk/dp/0999792717).

DiaTribe is a non-profit organisation,

the aim of which is to help as many

people as possible with useful advice.

If you want a taster of the kind of advice

Brown gives, then take a look at his

feature on "42 Factors that Affect Blood

Glucose". As Brown says, "Have you

ever heard someone explain diabetes

with a frustrating level of simplicity,

saying things like, 'You'll have on-target

blood sugars as long as you eat right,

exercise, and take your medicine.' We

all have, but if only it were that easy,

and wouldn't it be great that only vague

advice was all we needed to hear!"

Protomer Technologies has taken the top

prize in this year's 2 Diabetes Innovation

Challenge, worth $150k in the competition

run by American-based T1D Exchange. The

Challenge is a world-wide competition run

by T1D Exchange to identify, nurture and

fast-track innovative scientific and clinical

solutions for diabetes.

This is a technology that could see

a revolutionary 'smart' drug prevent

hypoglycemia in people with diabetes

in the form of a glucose-responsive

glucagon. While it is still in development,

this should be able sense low sugar

levels while automatically activate to

restore blood sugar levels to prevent

unpleasant hypos.

"Every person with Type 1 diabetes

who takes insulin lives in fear of

hypoglycemia, and for some, it means

they never quite achieve optimal insulin

levels," says Protomer Technologies

Founder and CEO Alborz Mahdavi. "The

visibility and exposure of winning the

Diabetes Innovation Challenge, along

with the first-place prize, will be invaluable

in our efforts to bring this smart-drug

technology to people with diabetes as

soon as possible."

travellers from annoying itchy bites so

they can enjoy their holiday," said Laure

de Brauer, head of marketing at Jungle

Formula's parent company, Perrigo.

"Travellers need understand where

they are travelling to and the risks so

they can protect themselves and their

family."

The brand also has a 'Slap it' strap

for children to wear.
