Medtronic next-gen CGM

Following a $50m expansion, Medtronic is to create more than 700 new

direct and indirect jobs in the Puerto Rican biosciences sector. Gov. Pedro

Pierluisi said that Government support, through incentives granted by

the DDEC, has "been key to the development of this expansion project.

Medtronic's new expansion is part of our commitment to continue

supporting manufacturing, which represents 48% of our economy."

Medtronic received incentives under the Special Fund for Economic

Development (FEDE), which it will use to create and retain jobs, and buy

machinery and equipment necessary for the manufacture of a new line of

products for diabetes management.

Department of Economic Development and Commerce Secretary Manuel

Cidre explains, "The second phase of this expansion allows the transfer of

part of the active sensor to Puerto Rico. The manufacturing of all the next

generation glucose sensor will generate an increase in the workforce of

production line employees, generating a multiplier effect on the economy."

The first phase of the project sees the conversion of 11,000 squarefeet

office area to a manufacturing area which will be dedicated to

manufacturing the new generation of the continuous glucose monitoring

sensor.

Medtronic Puerto Rico's Vice President of Operations Rolando Vázquez

added, This innovative new product manufactured by Puerto Rican hands

gives a more complete picture of glucose levels, resulting in better decisions

about lifestyle and better glucose control."

T2 exercise

research

People with Type 2 diabetes from the

south coast of England are invited

to participate in an exercise project.

Participants need to be registered

with a GP in Southampton or

Southwest Hampshire and diagnosed

with 2 diabetes. The study aims to

improve the health and wellbeing

of individuals living with Type 2

diabetes, who will benefit from

exercise, applied knowledge and

support from structured and holistic

intervention to encourage long-term

lifestyle change.

To find out more or to take part,

call Amy Woodford, Health and

Exercise Development Officer at

Solent University, on 023 8201 3671,

Diabetes tech

investment

Ultrahuman has raised $17.5m in a Series B

financing round for its wearable glucose tracking

technology. The India-based company is the

developer of Ultrahuman Cyborg - a continuous

metabolism tracker designed to help people

with diabetes track blood glucose in real-time

and optimise their diet and exercise. It utilises

biomarkers to tell users how their body reacts to

a specific type of food, fuel efficiently for exercise

and eat for better sleep. The funds raised will

allow Ultrahuman to launch in more countries and

improve its life sciences research capabilities.

Meanwhile, a digital health start-up, Breathe

Well-being, has raised $5.5m in first-round

financing, which it will use to scale up a clinical

tool that helps people "prevent, manage and

reverse Type 2 diabetes". The Breathe Well-being

programme centres around a gaming-style app

that provides personalised advice on daily diet,

fitness and stress reduction while tracking steps

taken, calories eaten, calories burnt, weight, blood

glucose levels, hydration and sleep quality. It also

sets goals to improve behaviours alongside a forum

to connect with other people with diabetes and

access to a personal coach.

Screening lowered to 35

The United States Preventive Services Task Force

recommends people from the age of 35 who are overweight

or obese should be screened for prediabetes and Type 2

diabetes for people but otherwise show no symptoms. The

expert panel said that those found to have prediabetes should

be referred for preventive interventions.

The recommendation is based on data suggesting that

diabetes increases at age 35 and on evidence that newly

diagnosed people benefit from interventions, such as

intensive behavioural counselling to promote a healthful

diet and physical activity. The advice replaces the 2015

recommendation that adults ages 40 to 70 who are

overweight or obese should be screened for abnormal blood

glucose levels and Type 2 diabetes as part of a cardiovascular

risk assessment.
