MORE DEXCOM SITE CHOICE

The Dexcom G6 CGM System now has

CE Marking across Europe, for wear on

the back of the upper arm, offering people

more choice on how to comfortably wear

their device. The Dexcom G6 uses a

small, wearable sensor and transmitter to

continuously measure and send glucose

levels wirelessly to a dedicated receiver

or compatible smart device, giving realtime glucose data without the need for a

finger-prick test. The system also offers

customizable alerts and alarms to help

avoid dangerous low and high blood

sugar events. The new approval means

people in Europe over the age of 2 will

be able to wear their Dexcom G6 on the

back of the upper arm or the abdomen.

In early June actor and T1D James Norton

took over JDRF's instagram account with

Dr Partha Kar as host where they cover

a range of topics including lockdown hair

styling and attending protests in the time

of Covid. For an extended (hour-long)

Insta-cast (some kind of social media

broadcast), Norton chats about what he

uses to pull him out of a hypo with his tips

on addressing night-time hypos and also

how he handles them when working on a

TV or film set. He also considers how to

tell a child to prepare to have a sensor put

on, arguing it's short-term pain for longterm gain. He also proves

that anyone

who wears on-body diabetes kit is going

to show you, for real, where it is…

Scientists at the Mayo Clinic are

researching the effectiveness of using the

particulars of the human gut microbiome

to determine the healthiest diets for

individual people, with a study suggesting

the best way to manage nutritional health

is to build personalised diets.

As nutrition science and technology

have evolved, so has our insight into what's

happening on a chemical level inside our

bodies, with some scientists, dietitians,

and food companies now focusing on

how our individual bodies process foods.

The researchers built a model for

predicting how different foods impact

people's blood sugar levels. By analysing

a person's gut microbiome, age, level of

physical exercise, and other factors, they

could very accurately predict how the

body reacts to food; more than if they

attempted to do so by counting calories

or carbs.The scientists followed 327

healthy people for six days. Each person

submitted stool samples and kept food

diaries, noting the exercise and rest they

got. They were also given blood-glucose

monitors that tracked their glycaemic

responses to food.

The model could accurately predict

blood-sugar changes 62% of the time.

Previously, when only predicting based

off carbs or calorie intake, they could

accurately guess fluctuations 40% and

32% of the time, respectively.
