Dexcom G6 CGM senor, continuous glucose monitoring in pregnancy for Type 1 diabetes

LIVINGLIVING

I

or people l If anything positive

can be said about lockdown,

it is that it gave the medical

community and those who

interact with it the necessary

sense of urgency to really get to grips

with digital ways of delivering healthcare

into the home for as many patients as

possible for whom it could be safely

achieved. Whereas many might have

been wary of moving to digital could lead

to possibly losing contact with healthcare

providers, the presence of Covid-19 has

forced us all to understand digital delivery

better and engage with it more in order

to stay well.

Once called telehealth, which now

sounds archaic, many of us have over the

years moved to calling an HCP when we

needed some help, or sending them an

email instead of trying to go and see them

in person. It's far easier if you have had

a great one-on-one relationship with your

HCP, so you're not talking to a stranger

who knows nothing of your background.

Many of us have downloaded an app

we thought might help us - perhaps with

tracking blood sugars or giving info on the

carb content of food, getting the hang of

using smartphones and tablets along the

way. More recently, you may have done a

video call with their GP or other healthcare

professional.

Personally, I've gone from the odd

FaceTime conversation with a member

of the family living overseas to doing

lockdown lunches and birthday 'parties'

FROM BOOMERS TO ZOOMERS

The baby boomer generation - people born from 1946 to 1964,

during the post -World War II baby boom - have been getting to

know digital devices and delivery (whether they liked it or not)

thanks to lockdown. By Sue Marshall

KIT

REPORT

on Zoom. I've done work meetings on

Team, Skype and whatever else is now

being used by businesses the world

over, as well as joined in some brilliantly

organised online get-togethers of pretty

big groups of my 'diabuddies' which have

been very enjoyable.

I've also been able to report on how

suppliers (including the NHS) specifically

in the diabetes sector have turned

themselves inside out to help support

people with diabetes in their homes which

has been both humbling and reassuring.

There has been a sincere push to get

people living with the condition to help

themselves from home - with 'remote'

pump starts and access to wearable

devices in general being improved in

order to allow HCPs to see patient data -

while both are in their own homes.

The following is a round-up of news

about digital diabetes tech, mainly from

the US plus UK-related towards the end.

Fast growth

You can get an app for virtually anything

now, and your watch is unlikely just to tell

you the time anymore, while other devices

are also creeping in allowing anyone who

is interested in tracking aspects of their

health, not just blood glucose levels.

In the US, but also in Europe, Fitbit

has received regulatory clearance for its

new electrocardiogram app to track heart

rhythm and flag signs of atrial fibrillation.

The regulatory nod brings Fitbit up to

speed with other manufacturers like

Omnipod president and CEO

Shacey Petrovic on the cover

of MD Tech Review which

named the insulin pump

one of it's Top 10 wearable

medical devices 2020.
