This is the first device authorized for marketing that provides a screening decision without the need for clinician interpretation.
Users also have access to the Company's Sugar.IQ app, which uses IBM's Watson Health platform, to identify glucose patterns based on factors that may affect them (ie, food intake, insulin dosages, daily routines).
The FDA reviewed data for the device through the de novo premarket review pathway, a regulatory pathway for novel, low-to-moderate-risk devices that are not substantially equivalent to an already legally marketed device.
A novel deep learning system has high sensitivity and specificity for identifying diabetic retinopathy.
In this phase 3 study, statistically and clinically meaningful improvements in HbA1c, body weight, and the proportion of patients achieving goal HbA1c <7% (53mmol/mol) were demonstrated with 2 doses of ITCA 650 vs placebo.
A new continuous glucose monitoring system that allows patients to capture real-time glucose readings without use calibration or routine fingersticks is now available.
The system is able to calculate and recommend optimal insulin dose, track the timing of doses, monitor insulin temperature, remind users to take insulin, and create reports for the healthcare provider.
The Advanced Technologies & Treatments for Diabetes (ATTD) Congress summarize consensus recommendations on the current understanding of how CGM results can affect outcomes.
Although sharing of real-time continuous glucose monitoring data can create tension between patients with type 1 diabetes and family members, it can also facilitate greater empowerment and perceptions of safety among both patients and their caregivers.
Participants reported improvements in many psychosocial variables associated with using an automated bihormonal bionic pancreas system relative to self-management of diabetes using their own insulin pump.
Recommendations for utilizing trend arrow data in a mobile continuous glucose monitoring system were recently issued for pediatric patients with type 1 diabetes.
Patients with prior experience using a continuous glucose monitoring system may benefit from the MiniMed 670G HCL system therapy.
A remotely connected diabetes management system increased patent satisfaction and improved glycemic control in patients with insulin-treated diabetes.
Interpreting trend arrow data from continuous glucose monitoring may provide additional data to improve glycemic control in adults with diabetes mellitus.
Professional continuous glucose monitoring can significantly reduce the economic burden of type 2 diabetes.
Adapting open-loop settings that are used by the artificial pancreas algorithm is easily understandable and transparent to both patients and physicians.
Real-time continuous glucose monitoring systems are comparable to traditional blood glucose monitoring methods in preterm infants.
With this statement, researchers hope to improve safety and efficacy outcomes, advance technology, and improve patient quality of life and health outcomes.
Secure messaging presents an opportunity for patients and healthcare providers to collaborate on self-management issues like glycemic control, diet, and exercise.
New monitoring system involves the placement of a small sensor wire beneath the skin surface to continuously monitor glucose levels.
Machines were used to examine the glycemic impact of various meals to determine a glucose forecast.
The studies will assess the safety, efficacy, and user-friendliness among other aspects, of multiple artificial pancreas devices.
Patients with type 1 diabetes who used multiple insulin injections daily experienced reductions in HbA1c with continuous glucose monitoring.
The FDA's expanded indication for the Dexcom G5 Continuous Glucose Monitoring System allows for replacement of fingerstick glucose testing.
The system allows patients and their caregivers to access glucose measurements through their pump or through a mobile app.
The Contour®Next One Blood Glucose Management System will be available in early 2017.
An implantable continuous glucose monitor appears to be a safe and effective alternative to a transcutaneous monitor in diabetes.
FDA approval of the first closed-loop insulin delivery system is exciting for both physicians and patients. What does this mean for the future?
Approval was based on a clinical trial that included 123 people with type 1 diabetes who used the MiniMed 670G hybrid closed-loop system for 3 months, after a 2-week period of no use.
The FDA is coordinating with investigators, manufacturers, clinicians, and others to bring automated insulin delivery devices to market.
Artificial pancreas was linked to 3-fold reduction of time-in-hypoglycemia for 5- to 9-year-olds.
Experimental technology senses blood glucose and delivers medicine with microneedles.
Insulin pump therapy is more effective than multiple daily injections for glycemic control in patients with type 2 diabetes.
Long-term use of insulin pump reduces fatal coronary heart disease, cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality.
Unilife Corporation announced the launch of the Imperium, the first instant patch pump for insulin with Bluetooth connectivity for patients with diabetes.
The paper raises questions regarding safety for measuring blood glucose, and when blood glucose meters are used in trials.
The novel technology could be a game-changer for patients with diabetes.
A statement from the EASD and the ADA indicates that modern insulin pump technologies could be further improved by adopting a more rigorous, standardized and transparent approach to safety.
The FDA has approved the Animas Vibe insulin pump and continuous glucose monitoring system for patients with diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes patients experienced improved glucose control and less hypoglycemia with use of an artificial pancreas vs. sensor-augmented pump therapy.
Roche announced the launch of Accu-Chek Aviva Expert system, the first blood glucose meter with a built-in insulin calculator.
Patients with type 1 diabetes may improve glucose control while reducing the frequency of hypoglycemic episodes with the arrival of the artificial pancreas.
