Abbott and Insulet Corporation are

integrating their technology and kit to offer

personalised automated insulin delivery

and care for people with diabetes.

This connected care solution will be

controlled through an app on a user's

smartphone and integrate both the

tubeless Omnipod Horizon System and

FreeStyle Libre sensor data, offering a

seamless option that will fit easily into the

lives of people with diabetes.

Glucose ata from the sensor will

be sent directly to the pod, which will

automatically adjust insulin delivery -

without the need for an extra device,

connection or tubing. Users can also

control the app to manually take a dose of

fast-acting insulin, or bolus, before meals

for optimal performance.

Jared Watkin, senior vice president of

INTEGRATE FOR BEST CARE

Diabetes Care at Abbott, said: "Abbott is

focused on creating future-forward health

technologies that simplify how people

living with diabetes manage their condition

so they can live their best lives. As diabetes

care becomes more interoperable, we're

developing more connected approaches

to improve care. Through this partnership,

Abbott and Insulet will offer an integrated

digital health platform that is simple and

accurate and will provide a best-in-class

user experience."

The platform is also expected to be

the first combined system with a fully

disposable wearable sensor and pump.

And, with both Insulet's and Abbott's ability

to sell its products through the pharmacy,

users of the integrated platform will benefit

from the ease of obtaining supplies with

an innovative pay-as-you-go model.

JDRF is calling for people to host a 'virtual'

Type 1 Tea Party* on or around National

Tea Day on 21 April to raise funds for

research into Type 1 diabetes.

By hosting a Type 1 Tea Party you get

to enjoy some delicious treats knowing

you're helping to change the lives of both

children and adults affected by Type 1

diabetes.

*NOTE: *Due to the Covid-19

situation, maybe venture on to

a video sharing platform online,

whereby folks can all 'dial in'

and see each other, all together.

Look out for a free one, as many

of these are set up for business,

most are US-based but are easy

enough to use. Examples are

Zoom, GoToMeeting, Google

Hangout, BlueJeans and Join.me

Young people and their families can learn about managing Type 1 diabetes at Digibete,

a video platform and social enterprise in partnership with the Diabetes Team at Leeds

Children's Hospital.

Content is carefully created to cater to specific age ranges to help people get the

best and relevant information. It is split into sections for kids, teens, parents and family,

teachers and healthcare professionals.

There is now also a dedicated section with 10 essential videos for those newly

diagnosed with T1D. Introduced by Dr James Yong, the topics covered include films

on injecting technique, visiting diabetes clinic, healthy eating and how to work out a

correction dose.
