MHRA alert on Solo

A NovoRapid PumpCart insulin cartridge and Roche Accu-Chek Insight

insulin pump safety warning has been issued.

The Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA)

has issued a safety warning, following concerns raised about the

NovoRapid PumpCart prefilled insulin cartridge and the Roche AccuChek Insight

Insulin pump. This device, which releases the insulin

your body needs throughout the day and night, comprises a pump,

tube, battery and a pre-filled glass insulin cartridge. In some of the

reported leakage incidents, cartridges were found to be cracked and

provided an inadequate supply of insulin to patients. However, leakages

also occurred in cases where no cracks in the cartridge were visible.

In some patients, there were consequences of not receiving enough

insulin from their pump system, including reports of severely high

blood sugar and diabetic ketoacidosis.

The MHRA is advising healthcare professionals to contact patients

who are affected by 26 November 2022 to discuss their individual

needs, source an alternative pump where appropriate and give them

further advice as needed.

Control for the

very young

Insulet has announced that its

Omnipod 5 tubeless, wearable,

automated insulin delivery system

can significantly improve time in

range and reduced HbA1c in young

children. The data, collected from

a three-month pivotal trial, showed

Omnipod 5 to significantly improve

time in range and reduce HbA1c in

80 children aged between two and

five years with Type 1 diabetes. After

all of the participants had completed

12 months, average HbA1c was 6.9%,

compared with 7.4% at baseline and

6.9% at the end of three months. Time

in range during months 10-12 of use

was 67.6%, compared to 57.2% during

standard therapy and 68.1% during

the three-month pivotal trial. Percent

time in hypoglycemia was reduced

compared with standard therapy,

with the median totaling 1.9% during

months 10-12 of use, compared to

2.2% during standard therapy and

1.9% during the first three months.

Furthermore, there were no episodes

of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) or

severe hypoglycemia.

Insulet SVP and Medical Director

Dr. Trang Ly said "With these

preschool extension trial results,

we have demonstrated improved

glycemic results over the long term

for very young children managing

diabetes. I'm incredibly proud of this

remarkable achievement and know

that Omnipod 5 will have a big impact

on these families." Baylor College

of Medicine's Dr. Daniel DeSalvo

said. "It is particularly challenging

for caregivers to manage diabetes

in children under six, given their

unpredictable eating habits and

activity levels. These results, along

with the system's tubeless form factor

and ease of use, make Omnipod 5 an

excellent choice for automated insulin

delivery in this age group, not only for

optimizing glycemic outcomes but for

alleviating the burden of diabetes for

the entire family."

Pre-meal protein for T2D

A small whey protein drink taken 10 minutes before meals can

significantly lower 24-hour mean blood glucose concentration and

increase the amount of time people with diabetes spend in euglycaemia

(normal blood sugar levels), according to new research from Newcastle

University, writes Dr Sheena Meredith, MB BS, MPhil, as reported in

MedscapeUK.

The Newcastle researchers conducted a study amongst 18 people

with Type 2 diabetes who were aged 50 on average, had had diabetes

for a mean 6 years and had a mean baseline HbA1c level of 7.4%. They

were given ready-to-drink 100 ml whey protein shots ,each containing

15.6 g protein to take 10 minutes before breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The results, published in BMJ Open Diabetes Research & Care,

showed that the pre-meal protein supplement significantly reduced

the prevalence of daily hyperglycaemia and increased the amount of

time spent in euglycaemia by around two hours per day on average.

Such an increase is considered clinically significant and may reduce the

risk of vascular complications. The authors believe that the technique

"holds potential for dietary management of the condition" and that

the results "may hold important implications for the management of

hyperglycemia".

Newcastle University PhD student, Kieran Smith, who oversaw

the glucose monitoring and analysed the data, said: "People were

able to stick to the regime and liked the idea of having a convenient,

tasty, small pre-made drink that could be carried with them and taken

before meals.

The team now intends to explore the benefits of pre-meal protein

supplementation in a larger-scale study and for a longer period of up

to six months, and to look at alternative proteins, such as those from

plant sources like peas, fungi and potatoes.
