FLASH TECH FOR

T1D TEENS

Flash glucose monitors help youths

with Type 1 diabetes better monitor

their blood sugar levels, but it doesn't

improve glucose control, a study from the

University of Otago in New Zealand has

found. A team of researchers conducted

a six-month trial among adolescents aged

13-20 years with a history of suboptimal

glycaemic control. The team compared

monitoring results of 64 study participants

divided into two groups - one group used

Flash, and the other used finger-prick

monitoring.

Associate Professor Wheeler, who coled the study,

says study participants who

were given the Flash glucose monitors

more than doubled their glucose level

monitoring frequency. After six months,

those using Flash were checking their

levels, on average, 3.8 times per day,

including scanning and finger pricking

as needed, whereas the control group

was checking their glucose levels, on

average, 1.4 times per day. Surprisingly,

researchers discovered the group using

the Flash monitoring technology had not

improved their glucose control and quality

of life significantly more than the control

group after six months

Despite the improved glucosechecking technology,

and overwhelmingly

positive participant and family experiences,

improving psychosocial outcomes will

require more intensive methods, Associate

Professor Wheeler says.

The next research steps include more

support for youth, and a focus on diet

and sleep, but also looking at increasing

automation, such as artificial pancreas

systems that combine less invasive

monitoring technology with computerdriven automated insulin delivery.

Outdoor clothing company Merrell has

launched a campaign in aid of Mind, the

mental health charity, that inspires people

to explore their local area to support their

mental health during this difficult year.

Hike From Home inspires everyone

to explore new, local walks from their

doorstep as a means to enjoy time

outdoors during the pandemic, as well as

supporting mental health and wellbeing.

The initiative follows a survey by Mind

of more than 16,000 people during

lockdown, which revealed the scale of the

impact of the pandemic on people with

mental health problems. Two out of three

(65%) adults and three-quarters (75%) of

young people aged 13-24 with an existing

mental health problem reported worse

mental health. More than half of adults

(51%) and young people (55%) without

experience of mental health problems also

said their mental health has got worse

during this period.

Science reveals that exercise

and time spent outside can aid both

physical and mental health. Research

into ecotherapy, a type of therapy which

involves doing activities outside in nature,

has been shown to help with mild and

moderate depression. The results of

lockdown, social distancing and travel

restrictions have laid the foundations for

a rise in micro-travel, opening the door

to doorstep discovery - uncovering new

routes and hidden gems near home

that may otherwise have remained

undiscovered.

Merrell has partnered with Komoot - a

digital community of outdoor enthusiasts

and route planning and navigation app.

HOME HIKE BOOSTS HEALTH

A short warm-up 'priming exercise' could help people with diabetes exercise for

longer. Sports scientists at Liverpool Hope University have discovered how the

'VO2 kinetics' - the time it takes for the body to glean the additional energy needed

for exercise - is much slower in people with Type 1 diabetes.They discovered how

a short 'priming' warm-up exercise, which involved a six-minute burst of hard

pedalling on an exercise bike, just before a training session actually sped up the

VO2 kinetics, making it much easier for people with Type 1 to get the energy they

needed. In fact, 'critical power' - the highest intensity before the onset of fatigue -

was boosted in diabetes patients by around 8%. That, say the academics, could

help people with Type 1 diabetes exercise at higher intensities and for longer,

potentially warding off heart disease.
