CES 2019: This Mobile Handset Aims To Simplify Type 1 Diabetes Management

id="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> The DBLG1 System aims to automate type 1 diabetes management.

Abrar Al-Heeti/CNET Diabetes can be a hassle to manage, Глюкометры but a new product wants to simplify the process by automatically delivering insulin to patients when it's needed.  

The DBLG1 System, by French company Diabeloop, links a continuous glucose monitor Глюкометры and patch insulin pump with a handset resembling cell phone. Every five minutes, a glucose measurement is sent via Bluetooth to that handset. An algorithm then analyzes the data in real time, taking into account the patient's physiology, history and Глюкометры data entries on meals or Глюкометры exercise to figure out how much insulin to administer. The system is designed for adults with type 1 diabetes.

More than 30 million Americans have diabetes, according to 2015 data from the American Diabetes Association. Of those people, around 1.25 million have type 1 diabetes. Patients often have to prick their fingers to measure their blood sugar and calculate insulin doses. But technology is helping to facilitate diabetes management by making it more automatic and precise.

Products like the Glooko's Mobile Insulin Dosing System, Глюкометры which was FDA cleared last year, can directly access a patient's blood glucose data from a glucose meter, cutting the need to manually enter fasting blood glucose levels. Other tools, like the Dexcom G6 -- the continuous glucose monitor incorporated into Diabeloop's DBLG1 System -- wirelessly sends a person's blood sugar readings to an app as often as every five minutes. The wireless Kaleido pump, the third component of the DBLG1 System, pledges to deliver consistent and accurate insulin doses to wearers.
