Through the informational video series, JDRF aims

to support people to understand what treatments are

available and broaden access to technology that can

improve the lives of people with Type 1. The videos are

accompanied with information on the JDRF website about

each piece of technology, including who qualifies for

these treatments under current NHS guidance.

JDRF's senior technology access specialist Lesley

Jordan said, "With Type 1 diabetes, there are so many

things that can affect your glucose levels and a lot of daily

decisions, particularly if someone is newly diagnosed or

struggling to achieve their treatment targets and looking

to change treatments. These videos are a great resource

to help people understand what technology there is, how

it works and how it can benefit them."

DIY APS access, an update

Commenting in response to a paper published in The

Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology in November 2021,

about guidance for people with Type 1 diabetes using

DIY technology to manage their condition, Diabetes

UK's policy manager Nikki Joule stated, "Do-it-yourself

artificial pancreas technology is a great example of

patient-led innovation and we know that growing

numbers of people with diabetes across the UK are

using it. Having international professional consensus

on this subject is important, and we hope UK regulators

will pay attention to these recommendations.

Particularly, we hope the Medicines and Healthcare

products Regulatory Authority (MHRA) will now seek

to provide clarity on their legal interpretations of this

technology. The ongoing MHRA consultation on the

regulation of medical devices is an ideal opportunity to

ensure they can do this."

The idea of DIY tech solutions may sound

disconcerting to many, but that's not the point, they are

here and possibly here to stay, so in the meantime says

Joules, "Diabetes UK understands why people choose to

turn to DIY closed-loop solutions, given that access to

regulated equivalents is very limited. We look forward

to the Scottish Health Technologies Group review

and National Institute for Health and Care Excellence

(NICE) appraisal of hybrid closed-loop systems, which

we hope will soon see more people accessing this lifechanging

technology in the NHS."
