we then take a six-minute rest (which

again is adaptable) and once recovered,

we repeat the circuit all over again."

Stephenson-Grey took part in the

London 2012 Olympics Games torch

relay and still trains (prior to lockdown) at

the track and in the gym. The exercises

she does include standing squats, pressups, the

plank, lunges, the superman

pose (when the opposite arm and leg are

stretched out) and sit ups.

She says, "This type of fitness session

is inspired by the type of session I've often

done with my training group over the

years, particularly at the start of the winter

or summer training season, as it helps

build strength and fitness as a foundation

to move onto other things. It works the

arms, legs and core areas throughout

the session, which can be helpful when

training a lot, because no one area is

necessarily over-worked or strained."

The home workout videos have been

accepted by many in the community.

She adds, "I'm sharing what training

sessions work for me. Please remember

that you know your own fitness, health

and diabetes best. Seek medical advice

if you are concerned about undertaking

physical activity."

Dexcom delivers results

Dexcom has presented

promising results from two

studies of continuous glucose

monitors, including its nextgeneration

G7 CGM, reports Drug

Delivery Business.

The first study - the Mobile study

- observed 175 adults with Type 2

diabetes receiving diabetes care from

a primary care provider trying to

manage their diabetes using basal or

background insulin but not fasteracting

insulin at meals. Two-thirds

of the participants were assigned to

use Dexcom CGM, and the others

a traditional blood glucose meter.

The group using Dexcom's CGM

spent an average of 3.8 hours more

each day within the optimal range of

blood glucose levels, 3.6 hours less

each day in the very high glucose

range and had a reduction in CGMmeasured

hypoglycaemia. In total,

63% of patients using CGM had an

HBA1c of less than 8%, compared

to just 39% in the traditional

meter group.

Dexcom's second study of its

next-generation G7 interoperable

CGM supports its efforts toward CE

mark submission and US pre-pivotal

work. Across approximately 360

sensor sections, 99% of readings

were clinically accurate and safe

for treatment decisions. The mean

absolute relative difference (MARD)

- the average absolute error

between all CGM values and matched

reference values - came in at 8.7%.

Dexcom touts its G7 wearable

CGM as 60% smaller than the G6 and

says it contains a smaller all-in-one

sensor applicator and transmitter

with a 30-minute warm-up time

before use. In addition, it possesses

interoperability with insulin delivery

devices and maintains accuracy,

as demonstrated in the study, the

company said.

Redesigned

Dexcom's Jake Leach said in a press

release, "Initial clinical data has

only strengthened our conviction

that Dexcom G7 will build upon

the high accuracy standard already

established by our G6 CGM system.

The G7 is a completely redesigned

CGM; our users will get a whole suite

of new features that we believe will

enhance the customer experience

that has become synonymous with

Dexcom."

Dexcom presented the studies

during the 14th International

Conference on Advanced

Technologies & Treatments for

Diabetes (ATTD). This comes as

people with diabetes in Canada on

intensive insulin therapy, age two

years or older, may now be eligible

for provincial coverage of the

Dexcom G6 CGM System through

British Columbia PharmaCare,

reports Businesswire.com.

British Columbia joins Yukon,

Quebec and Saskatchewan to offer

public coverage of CGM systems

under provincial health plans. The

announcement marks a significant

accomplishment in increasing access

to life-changing technology used

in the management of diabetes

and recognises the impact CGM

technology can have on those who

require intensive insulin therapy to

manage their Type 2 diabetes and

those living with Type 1 diabetes.

Laura Endres, Vice President

and General Manager of Dexcom

Canada commented, "As a British

Columbia-based company, we are

thrilled by today's announcement

and the province's commitment to

the diabetes community. We have

seen the impact of improved access

to CGM to truly change lives, and we

look forward to continuing our work

toward access for all those impacted

by diabetes across Canada."
