Nasal glucagon Baqsimi Rapid Cap, Marianne's portion control plate

KIT

Accidentally pricking

yourself when taking off a

needle cap is a common

occurrence. People injecting

insulin (as well as some

healthcare professionals)

might be uncap a minimum

of three and often at least

five times daily in a variety

of settings and situations.

So there is always a risk

of what are called 'needle

stick injuries'. Due to the

'hands away' technique

involved with taking a needle

cap off with Rapid Cap, that risk is hugely minimised. An easy to use device, it's been

designed with input from people with diabetes. Having been tested and achieving quality

assurance Rapid Cap is newly available. The design now makes needle cap removal

safe, swift and easy to execute. The device can be used with just one single hand. It is

robust yet lightweight, designed with a non-slip base to increase stability. A guide helps

to centre the pen. Push down once and there is a click of release, then you repeat the

process to recap the needle without exposing your hand to the needle. This device could

give added independence to some people with diabetes as well as being an asset to

caregivers, nurses and general practitioners. Made in New Zealand, the company ships

to the UK and is currently looking for a distributor here. www.rapidcap.co.nz

NASAL

GLUCAGON

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration

(FDA) has approved Baqsimi (glucagon)

nasal powder 3mg for the treatment

of severe hypoglycemia in people with

diabetes ages four years and above, as

announced by Eli Lilly and Company.

Baqsimi is the first and only nasally

administered glucagon, and it was

designed with severe hypoglycemia

rescue in mind. It is compact, portable and

ready to use (no reconstitution required) in

a single, fixed, 3mg dose. In a trial with

adult patients, Baqsimi had comparable

efficacy to injectable glucagon. Common

cold with nasal congestion did not impair

absorption of the product. It will be a while

before the product will be widely available

in the US or globally.

RAPID ACTION

A LOT ON YOUR PLATE?

Maintaining a healthy weight is important

for anyone's overall health. Making

simple changes to what and how much

you're eating can really help you lose the

pounds. Portion control is key. If you eat

less, you consume fewer calories and

by combining this with regular exercise

you're on the right track to improved

health. Marianne's Plate eliminates the

need to weigh food or count calories and

can help with carbohydrate, protein and

all forms of portion control.

Even a healthy diet will cause weight

gain if eaten in the wrong portions.

Marianne's Plate is a simple way to

achieve portion control and maintain it,

simple enough to get children to know

about healthy portion sizes. Each plate (in

a choice of three designs) is split into three

sections, one for each major food group.

Half of the plate is for salad or vegetables,

a quarter of the plate is for poultry, meat

or fish, and the final quarter of the plate is

for carbs - pasta, rice or potatoes.
