T1 telemedicine takes off; checks on T2 risks surge

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE (6)

T

ype 1 telemedicine is

taking off. A study has

given insights into the

use and perception of

telemedicine during the

COVID-19 pandemic among people with

Type 1 diabetes.

Researchers from the University of

Bern, Switzerland distributed an online

questionnaire via social media between

24 March and 5 May 2020 - 7,477 people

from 89 countries responded, and the

majority were from the USA (40.6%), UK

(17.5%), or Switzerland (9.8%). Overall,

28% said they had taken part in remote

consultations, while 31% said they

planned to use telemedicine in the future,;

approximately 80-90% of respondents

thought telemedicine was useful.

"Type 1 diabetes might be particularly

well suited to telemedicine because a lot

of consultations are mostly based around

review of glucose data and conversations

about therapy," and there is "increasing

use of continuous glucose monitoring,

insulin pumps, and smart insulin pens

alongside cloud- or screen-based datasharing," said co-author Sam Scott at

the virtual European Association for the

Study of Diabetes (EASD) conference in

September.

T2 risk checks surge

Almost 300,000 people have checked

their risk of Type 2 diabetes online less

than two months after the NHS fasttracked access to its Healthier You

Diabetes Prevention Programme.

Latest figures show that 291,325

people used the Diabetes UK Know

Your Risk tool since the end of July - a

637% increase compared to two months

previously.

Over 5,000 people have now selfreferred

for support to lose weight and

prevent the onset of Type 2 diabetes. The

programme has the capacity to support

5,000 people every week, and the NHS

is now urging even more people who are

at risk to check their risk and sign up.

People can use the online test, hosted

by Diabetes UK, to calculate their risk of

developing the condition by answering

basic questions including age, weight and

ethnicity.

If their score comes back as

sufficiently high, they can refer themselves

to a local service for support remotely or

online, without having to go through a

healthcare professional. They can choose

how to complete the programme, either

by joining group sessions by video link or

telephone with an experienced coach or

through digital support, which includes

online peer support groups and in some

areas, wearable tech.

Previously, people had to go to their

GP or visit a healthcare professional

and get a blood test before a referral,

but the risk of coronavirus has meant

that fewer people have had face-to-face

GP appointments and fewer people are

accessing blood tests.
