Careline:

In August 2018 in the US, Tandem

Diabetes Care launched its insulin pump

with predictive low glucose suspend

feature, having gained FDA approval

for the t:slim X2 pump with Basal-IQ

technology. This pump became available

in the UK earlier this year (2019) and

includes a predictive low glucose suspend

feature designed to reduce the frequency

and duration of hypos. Using the Basal-IQ

algorithm, the system predicts where

a user's blood sugar levels are trending

as far as 30mins into the future. When

the algorithm predicts low glucose

levels, the device suspends insulin

delivery, but automatically resumes once

glucose levels begin to rise. It works with

Dexcom's G6 CGM, which eliminates the

need for blood tests, even for calibration.

Customers using older versions of

Tandem's t:slim X2 could add Basal-IQ

technology via a remote software update.

This ability to provide remote software

updates allows in-warranty t:slim X2 pump

to add updates to their current pumps

using a personal computer. The company

now expects to offer its users an upgrade

to its Control-IQ 'advanced hybrid closedloop technology'. Control-IQ

is designed

to predict glucose levels 30mins ahead

and adjust insulin delivery accordingly,

whether falling or rising. A trial held in

the US this year (2019) found that an

artificial pancreas system from Tandem

Diabetes Care was more effective than

existing treatments for people with Type

1 diabetes.

The Tandem system combines

its t:slim X2 insulin pump and

Control-IQ advanced hybrid

closed-loop technology with

Dexcom's G6 CGM.

Results from the study were published

in the New England Journal of Medicine.

The trial randomly assigned 168 Type 1

patients ages 14 or older to either the

Tandem device or treatment with the G6

CGM and another insulin pump that did

not automatically adjust insulin. Patients in

the Control-IQ arm increased the amount

of time in glucose level range (TIR) by an

average of 2.6 hours a day and showed

improvements in time spent with high

and low blood glucose, HbA1c and other

measures compared to the control group

with no severe hypoglycaemia events

reported.
