This is Diabetes competition

App use

= more Time

in Range

People with diabetes who use

the FreeStyle Libre mobile app

experience significantly improved

time in the target glucose range,

known as Time in Range (TIR), than

those using a reader.

LibreLink smartphone app users

experienced an average of 5%

(approximately an hour per day) more

time spent in TIR, which captures the

percentage of time in a day a person

with diabetes spends in the target

glucose range (3.9-10mmol/l).

The real-world data, published

in the Journal of Diabetes Science

and Technology, also shows that

FreeStyle LibreLink app users

experienced lower glucose variability,

lower average glucose, and less

time in hyperglycemia than reader

users. These results also bolster the

importance of sharing data with

healthcare professionals through

telehealth for remote glucose

monitoring.

During the COVID-19 mandated

lockdowns, studies in Scotland and

Spain found that FreeStyle Libre

users with Type 1 diabetes increased

TIR (3% and 4%, respectively) over

the lockdown period, with associated

improvements in glycaemic

variability and estimated HbA1c.

Abbott is now joining Novo

Nordisk and The diaTribe Foundation

in the USA in raising awareness and

education on Time in Range. The

global campaign, "It's Time for Time

in Range," provides TIR education,

clinical guidance, expert insights and

resources to healthcare providers via

TIRhub.com.

Ascensia Diabetes Care has launched a global "This is Diabetes" art and

photography competition as its initiative to support World Diabetes

Day this year (14 November). The competition is designed to use art and

photography to highlight the importance of 'Access to Diabetes Care',

particularly medication, technology, care, support, nutrition and exercise,

which is the official theme chosen by the International Diabetes Federation

(IDF) for 2021.

The winning entrant will be able to nominate a diabetes charity of

their choice to receive €5,000, with three runners-up prizes of €1,000.

The winners will be announced on World Diabetes Day, 14 November

2021. Members of the diabetes online community, professional artists

and photographers, and a representative from Ascensia's Diabetes Insider

group, which is made up of several employees living with diabetes, have

been selected to sit on the judging panel. Together these judges will choose

a winning entry and three runners-up based on three criteria: creativity,

storytelling, and the connection to this year's World Diabetes Day theme.

Entries of original photography or art should showcase what access to

diabetes care really means. Submissions are open until 31 October 2021 via

www.thisisdiabetes.com

Approval edges closer

The latest clinical trial results for the Omnipod 5 show the automated

insulin delivery (AID) system can significantly increase Time in Range (TIR)

and reduce the stress around managing diabetes, reports diaTribe.

Omnipod 5 is a new automated insulin delivery (AID) system that

integrates the Omnipod patch pump with the Dexcom G6 continuous

glucose monitor. The smart algorithm built into the patch pump links

these devices and can be controlled directly from the smartphone app,

unlike the previous version. This new device can predict changes in

glucose levels and then automatically adjust the users' insulin doses. The

app will only be available for Android users initially, but an iPhone version

is in production.

Dr Trang Ly, one of the study's researchers and the senior vice

president and medical director at Insulet, which makes the Omnipod,

explains, "Improvements in HbA1c, Time in Range, and hypoglycaemia

reduction were all observed over 12 months while using Omnipod 5."

The clinical trial data is published in Diabetes Care. To read more,
