A leading GP and top UK professor says

healthcare teams must embrace 'working

together' to improve the standard of

diabetes care. Professor Kamlesh Khunti,

from the Hockley Farm Medical Practice

in Leicester, has praised the NHS for its

commitment, but believes adopting a

multidisciplinary working approach would

significantly improve health outcomes.

Prof Khunti, who is a Co-Director of the

Leicester Diabetes Centre, said: "We

know there are 3.8m people living with a

diagnosis of diabetes in the UK, of which

90% have Type 2 diabetes. In addition,

people who have Type 2 diabetes very

often have other chronic health conditions,

and therefore managing different therapies

and medications becomes even more

challenging. With so many different health

issues on the rise, it's vital we find a new

way of working which is going to improve

the health of the nation"

Prof Khunti suggests, "Models of

multidisciplinary integrated primary and specialist care teams working

collaboratively have been rolled out within

the NHS, and we're already starting to

see further joined up care. Each and

every team plays an integral part in

someone's health. Nurses, dieticians and

pharmacists, anybody involved in the field

of diabetes, has a variety of skills and if

we work together, empowering patients

and sharing best practice within our

specialised areas, then we can provide

the best quality of care possible."

CONTROL-IQ GETS RESULTS

As reported by Drug Delivery Business,

a pivotal trial funded by the National

Institutes of Health (NIH) in the United

States 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. Control-IQ is

designed to predict glucose levels 30

minutes ahead and adjust insulin delivery

accordingly. Results from the study, which

was funded by NIH's National Institute of

Diabetes & Digestive & Kidney Diseases

(NIDDK), were published in the New

England Journal of Medicine.

NIDDK diabetes technology

program director Dr. Guillermo

Arreaza-Rubín commented on

the results saying, "Testing the

safety and effectiveness of new

technologies in real-world settings

is critical to prove the usability of

these systems by people with diabetes

to achieve a better daily control of their

blood glucose levels. Earlier technologies

have made the management of Type 1

diabetes easier, and this research shows

that this artificial pancreas system has the

potential to improve the health of people

living with Type 1 diabetes, while also

potentially lifting much of the burden of

care from those with the disease and their

caregivers."

The Tandem t:slim X2 is distributed in

the UK by Air LIquide Healthcare.
