Dexcom ONE shares the same innovative sensor and

transmitter technology as the Dexcom G6 and is suitable

for people with Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes using insulin.

It is an easy-to-use real-time CGM (rt-CGM) that will be

more affordable and accessible for people with diabetes

in the UK.

The Dexcom ONE, a wearable sensor and transmitter,

puts people firmly in control of their diabetes. By

continuously monitoring glucose levels and sending realtime values

wirelessly to a compatible smart device* via

the Dexcom ONE mobile app, the technology eliminates

the need for painful finger pricking to take blood tests.

The app was designed to be user friendly, displaying trend

arrows to show the speed and direction glucose levels

are heading, making in the moment treatment decisions

easier. A range of customisable alerts help users avoid

potentially dangerous high or low glucose events.

The Dexcom G6 CGM will continue to be available

through existing channels to people who require

additional support to manage diabetes, for example

people who are hypo unaware, children and those using

connected devices.

GLUCORX

Following the latest NICE guidelines, every person living

with Type 1 diabetes will be eligible to use a CGM. The

GlucoRx AiDEX CGM has been available on the Drug tariff

since April 1, 2022. The wearable sensor allows people

to check their glucose levels with a one-second scan.

According to GlucoRx, the product combines accuracy

and cost-efficiency in price compared to other CGMs

options and is the first company to roll out sensors with

14 days use to NHS patients with Type 1 diabetes.

Chris Chapman, a Chief Operating Officer of GlucoRx,

says, "We are delighted that our CGM devices are the

first CGMs to be available on prescription for every NHS

patient with Type 1 diabetes. It is an honour to work with

the NHS on such a big project which will improve the

quality of life for thousands of people with the condition.

Achieving drug tariff status [i.e. available on the NHS]

allows us to make a bigger difference within the world

of diabetes. We pride ourselves on enhancing the health

outcomes for people living with Type 1 diabetes."

Founded in 2010, GlucoRx is committed to improving

the lives of people with diabetes. To date, more

than 1,000 GlucoRx CGM's have been sold, prior to

becoming available on the NHS, with users branding

the GlucoRx AiDEX CGM as 'super easy to use' and

'extremely accurate'.

Research presented at the Diabetes UK Professional

Conference 2022 revealed that flash monitoring not

only helps to improve blood glucose levels in people

with Type 1 diabetes, but also has a positive effect on

their quality of life. According to the NHS, tools like

continuous glucose monitoring, which help people better

manage their condition and reduce associated illness and

hospitalisations, will reduce costs in the long run.

This news comes as the National Institute for Health

and Care Excellence (NICE) announced new guidance

for adults and children managing Type 1 diabetes, where

all Type 1 diabetes children/young people offered CGM

ahead of Flash (Abbott's FreeStyle Libre technology,

together with education for both they and their families

and/or carers on how to use their device. Also, all Type 1

diabetes adults will be offered a choice of CGM devices.

†If your glucose alerts and readings from Dexcom ONE do

not match symptoms or expectations, use a blood glucose

meter to make diabetes treatment decisions.
