Glucose oxidase: An enzyme

commonly used in all invasive blood

glucose monitors and CGM sensors,

fundamentally because it works.

HbA1c: A blood test that gives you

a kind of a 'finger print' of your sugar

levels for the previous three months.

Time in Range (TIR): the amount of

time your glucose levels were within a

pre-defined range.

GLOSSARY

nemauramedical/sugarbeat

ABOVE LEFT: A sensor (on the left) and transmitter. ABOVE CENTRE: A

sensor being inserted into the transmitter. This is pressed into place on

the arm after it has been primed with the preparation patch (ABOVE

RIGHT). OPPOSITE: A sugarBEAT transmitter.

factors are affecting your glucose levels

during the course of the day.

"One of the great motivators for the

development team was to improve quality

of life for people with diabetes," explains

Chowdhury, "not just making it all about

the measurement, but making it about

ease of measurement and access to the

results in an easily understandable way."

The sugarBEAT sensor is extra

sensitive. It will pick up around onemillionth of the amount of glucose that is

normally present in the blood. The sensor

signals are transmitted via Bluetooth to the

reader - an app on a smartphone -where

is converted into a glucose value using an

algorithm. This information is picked up

every five minutes, which means the app

can pick up on trends of blood glucose

going up or down. Alarms can be set to

indicate if this is happening safely or may

need attention. It is also possible within

the app to check other parameters, such

as how much time the user has spent 'in

range' (TIR).

"Helping people to assess lifestyle

change choices such as what food they

eat what exercise they take and how

effective their medications are can lead us

to beat diabetes," says Chowdhury.

We'll report further as soon as this

sensor starts to become available and will

chart its progress. It's about time Type 2s

were allowed in on the sensor revolution.
