Glucose Meters with Built-In Automated Bolus Calculator: Gadget or Real Value for Insulin-Treated Diabetic Patients?

A practical review of the paper published in Diabetes Therapy 2013 by Ides M. Colin and Isabelle Paris, followed by discussion and sharing of case studies around the value of bolus calculators. 

DO BGMs with a built-in bolus calculators improve the willingness and the ability of insulin-treated patients to make adequate therapeutic decisions and positively impact the metabolic control and the quality of life of users? Or are they simply a gimmick that will appeal to certain people with diabetes.

A panel of HCP’s involved in diabetes management will offer their perspectives and share case studies and experience.

Success in the next steps to prevent hypoglycaemia

Speaker: Clinical Professor Tim Jones 

Dr Jones is Head of Department of Diabetes and Endocrinology, Princess Margaret Hospital for Children, Perth, Clinical Professor at the Institute for Child Health Research, University of Western Australia and holds an NHMRC Practitioner Fellowship.  

This presentation includes a review of Low Glucose Suspend (LGS) integrated technology with new evidence showing the reduction of hypoglycaemia with sensor augmented pump therapy using automated insulin suspension. The clinical need to prevent hypoglycaemia will be emphasised given it is considered to be a major barrier to effective glycaemic control.  Professor Jones will also discuss new Australian research on impaired hypoglycaemia awareness, as well as specific populations suitable for sensor augmented pump therapy with automated insulin suspension. Given ongoing research towards developing the closed loop ‘artificial pancreas’ system, the presentation will also  focus on the progress  to date including Predictive Low Glucose Management (PLGM) theory combined with case studies from the PiLGriM study showing PLGM therapy in action.

Topics covered:

Topic 1: Update and review on Low Glucose Suspend (LGS)

Topic 2:  Hypo unawareness and specific indications

Topic 3:  A focus on new developments in preventing hypoglycaemia
