A GOOD GAME OF ONEUPMANSHIP

A trio of new - or improved - glucose sensors are

about to become available in the UK.

ABBOTT "Since we launched the first disposable glucose

sensor in 2014, we've always believed all people with

diabetes should have access to high-quality, accurate and

affordable diabetes technologies," adds Watkin. "That's

why Abbott disrupted the traditional notion that CGMs

have to sacrifice quality or accuracy for affordability,

and we built our FreeStyle Libre family of products to

deliver unparalleled results at a lower cost than any other

CGM available."

Next generation

The FreeStyle Libre 3 system includes the FreeStyle Libre

3 mobile app which is designed to enable users to capture

and view their real-time glucose levels, glucose history

and trend arrows showing how their glucose is changing

with just a glance at their smartphone.

Abbott designed its next-generation FreeStyle Libre 3

system to be more sustainable for the environment with

a smaller and more discreet sensor, reducing the total

volume by more than 70%. With a 41% reduction in plastic

use and 43% reduction in carton paper, the new sensor

design aligns with the company's continued commitment

to sustainability.

Abbott is a global healthcare leader that helps people

live more fully at all stages of life. Its portfolio of lifechanging

technologies spans the spectrum of healthcare,

with leading businesses and products in diagnostics,

medical devices, nutritionals and branded generic

medicines. Its 107,000 colleagues serve people in more

than 160 countries.

DEXCOM

Dexcom, fresh from celebrating gaining a CE Mark for

its G7 sensor, has also announced another new product,

Dexcom ONE. This is expected to be on prescription via

the NHS England in the coming months, demonstrating

a huge step forward in access to diabetes technology

and improved access to potentially lifesaving technology

for people with diabetes. This product is an affordable,

accessible and easy-to-use rt-CGM that will enable

more people with diabetes to gain greater control over

their condition.

Recently Abbott announced it had secured CE Mark

(Conformité Européenne) for its next-generation

FreeStyle Libre 3 system. The FreeStyle Libre 3

technology provides continuous, real-time glucose

readings automatically delivered to smartphones every

minute, offering unsurpassed 14-day accuracy1 in the

smallest and thinnest sensor design at the same price as

previous versions of the device.

"Abbott won't stop innovating when there's room to

raise the bar. We've done that again with FreeStyle Libre

3, the smallest sensor that delivers life-changing benefits

and best-in-class accuracy," says Jared Watkin, senior

vice president, Diabetes Care, Abbott. "People living with

diabetes are at the centre of our design process, and we

made our next-generation technology even more discreet

for a better user experience to make managing diabetes

as easy and seamless as possible."

With a 14-day wear time, the FreeStyle Libre 3 is

easy to apply with a one-piece applicator. It is worn

on the back of the upper arm, eliminating the need for

painful fingersticks to view glucose levels. To allow as

many people as possible living with diabetes to access

and benefit from the significant advancements of the

technology, Abbott's FreeStyle Libre 3 system will be

priced the same as previous generations of the device.
