  • Study results showed that the iLet Bionic Pancreas increased time in range for adults with type 1 diabetes. BP significantly increased the percentage of time adults with T1D had blood glucose levels between 3.9-10.0 mmol/L70–180 mg/dL when compared to multiple daily injection (MDI) or pump usage.
  • Medtronic announced the enrollment of study participants for the crucial Bluetooth Enabled MiniMed™ 780G advanced hybrid closed-loop system. This new technology features the delivery of automated correction boluses when users experience or are predicted to experience prolonged high BGs. Medtronic also announced that it initiated the pivotal trial for its next-generation Guardian™ Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) sensor, created to improve accuracy, reduce sensor calibrations and enhance overall user experience.
  • New, evidence-based recommendations for time-in-range targets have been determined by an international panel of diabetes experts striving for accurate parameters for CGM blood glucose level goals in both research and clinical settings. While the panel explains that CGM-based targets must be personalized to meet the needs of each individual, there is a general consensus on recommendations based on data from large pre-CGM clinical trials, CGM randomized controlled trials and expert opinion.
  • Abbott announced new data showing use of its FreeStyle Libre system significantly reduced hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) levels for people living with type 2 diabetes on intensive insulin therapy. The results were analyzed from retrospective, real-world data in three countries across Europe and showed a nearly 1% drop in A1c from 8.9% to 8.0%.
