KIT

Conference call (part 1)

An annual diabetes tech and treatments conference

(ATTD) took place this after a few years hiatus. It's

an opportunity for device makers to showcase their

ideas, prototypes and also actually available in some

regions. By Sue Marshall.

Following are some companies

and their products that

garnered attention at this

year's conference. With

additional proof of concept, and the

right backing, maybe some of these

will become part of our diabetes

control choices in the future. Listed

here alphabetically by manufacturer.

We will report as and when (and if)

they become available in the UK.

Abbott

FreeStyle Libre sensor

Analysis presented at ATTD 2022

showed that Abbott's FreeStyle

Libre System provides similar - and

sustained - reductions in glucose

levels for people with both Type 1

and Type 2 diabetes.

Meta-analysis of 75 real-world

studies found that Abbott's FreeStyle

Libre system is associated with

significant reductions in glycated

haemoglobin (HbA1c) after three

months' of use.i Reductions in

HbA1c followed a similar pattern in

people with both Type 1 and Type 2

diabetes and were sustained for up

to 24 months.i Meta-analysis shows

that people with Type 2 diabetes

who use insulin benefit from the

FreeStyle Libre system in the same

way as people with Type 1 diabetes

in real-world studiesi, showing the

need for access to the latest glucose

monitoring technology.

The results were presented at the

Advanced Technologies & Treatments

for Diabetes (ATTD) Congress in April

2022, in Barcelona. According to the

British Medical Journal (BMJ)'s journal

of Evidence-Based Nursing, ''metaanalysis

is a research process used to

systematically synthesise or merge

the findings of single, independent

studies, using statistical methods

to calculate an overall or 'absolute'

effect. Meta-analysis does not simply

pool data from smaller studies to

achieve a larger sample size."

The study also found a clinically

significant reductions of average

glucose levels towards the

internationally recommended HbA1c

goal of 7% for adults with diabetes.

Reductions were sustained for up

to 24 months in those with Type

1 diabetes and up to 12 months in

those with Type 2 diabetes, reflecting

the duration of the studies available

for analysis. Reductions in HbA1c

over time followed a similar pattern

for people with Type 1 and Type

2 diabetes, demonstrating that, in

a real-world setting, people with

Type 2 diabetes who use insulin

benefit from FreeStyle Libre system

in a similar way as people with

Type 1 diabetes.

"Many people with Type 2

diabetes who use insulin have a

very similar experience to people

with Type 1 diabetes in terms of

the risk of complications and the

need to monitor blood glucose,

but access to sensing technology is

rarely equal for both groups," said

Mark Evans MD FRCP, University

Professor of Diabetic Medicine,

University of Cambridge. "Our

analysis demonstrates the value

of constant glucose monitoring to

support glycaemic control in people

with advanced type 2 diabetes

who use insulin as we see clinically

meaningful benefits translated to a

real-world setting."

countries, the FreeStyle Libre system
