Type 1 Diabetes Patients To Be Offered Transformational Wearable Technology In England


All the patients suffering from the Type 1 diabetes in England are going to be offered wearable technology for the purpose of monitoring the blood sugar levels in just seconds, and the gadget, which is a size of coins of 2 pounds can be placed on the arms of the patients and are constantly checking the levels of their glucose.

With the app, the user can scan the monitor in a second and can also get a reading, which has been telling them whether the blood sugar levels are at an appropriate level, and the monitors are also going to be rolled out to all the Type 1 patients as compared to the past, when only three in the five patients were available.

The Diabetes UK said that, the decision had been transformational for the people suffering from the condition. Chris Askew, chief executive of Diabetes UK said that, what they are seeing today has been a key shift in thinking, which has been a move for recognizing that technology has been an integral part of the diabetes management, which is not a simply added luxury.

Dr. Paul Chrisp, director of the centre for guidelines at Nice said that, most of the people find that, the finger-pick testing for diabetes to be painful and very time consuming and the introduction of this technology for all the people living with the Type 1 Diabetes is going to be decreased considerably.
