FDA Approves Dexcom G5 for Insulin Dosing

Users of the Dexcom G5 Mobile Continuous Glucose Monitoring System (Dexcom G5) can now rely on the device to make diabetes treatment decisions using two finger pricks daily, not multiple ones, following the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) approval of expanded use of the device.

On Tuesday, the FDA granted the expanded indication. Users must still calibrate the device at least two times a day by testing a fingertip blood sample with a blood glucose meter.

NIH statement from Dr. Griffin P. Rodgers, Director, National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.

For many millions of Americans, diabetes is a lifelong burden. But it does not have to be a lifelong barrier to better health. This National Diabetes Month, the National Institutes of Health encourages people with diabetes and those who care for them to find the support they need, and for all people to gain understanding and offer support to those with this challenging disease.

Diabetes takes multiple forms. In type 1 diabetes, the body does not make insulin. In type 2 diabetes, the most common type, the body does not make enough insulin or it does not use insulin well. Both types can lead to heart, kidney, nerve, and eye diseases.

But people are not powerless when it comes to management of diabetes. Research led by NIH has shown that working to control blood glucose, or blood sugar, can have a lifelong effect on health, dramatically lowering the risk of many complications of diabetes.

NIH’s National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases remains at the forefront of pivotal research to prevent, treat and, one day, cure all types of diabetes, for everyone.

As President Barack Obama states in his Proclamation (link is external), if you have diabetes, or care for someone with the disease, you are not alone. Building a support network can help you stay healthy. And supporting a person with diabetes can start small. Ask your loved one to show you how he or she is managing the disease. What goals have been set?  What gets in the way of reaching goals? How can you help?

For people with diabetes, managing the disease is a balancing act, and your needs can change over time. Caring for your health is a matter of trying and learning what works best for you. Family, friends, health care professionals, and communities all belong on your team.

More information on diabetes is available through the NIDDK and the National Diabetes Education Program, a joint program of NIH and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The NIDDK, part of the NIH, conducts and supports basic and clinical research and research training on some of the most common, severe, and disabling conditions affecting Americans. The Institute’s research interests include: diabetes and other endocrine and metabolic diseases; digestive diseases, nutrition, and obesity; and kidney, urologic, and hematologic diseases. For more information, visit www.niddk.nih.gov.

About the National Institutes of Health (NIH): NIH, the nation’s medical research agency, includes 27 Institutes and Centers and is a component of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. NIH is the primary federal agency conducting and supporting basic, clinical, and translational medical research, and is investigating the causes, treatments, and cures for both common and rare diseases.

Treating The Diabetic In Your Life On Valentine’s Day

Treating The Diabetic In Your Life On Valentine’s Day

As with most holidays, the food offerings that Valentine’s Day bring can be absolute torture to a diabetic. While more than 100 million Americans deal with type 2 diabetics, a majority of our nation has no idea what it’s like to manage, or live with,  diabetes. Holidays are the toughest time of year because of all the sweets that rise to the surface and fill the aisles of our grocery stores. Not being able to enjoy the sweets doesn’t mean that diabetics shouldn’t be able to enjoy these holidays. The Metabolic Research Institute in West Palm Beach has found great ways for you to treat the diabetic in your life this Valentine’s Day.

CUT BACK ON SUGAR

Managing a healthy blood sugar level is hard when you’re a type 2 diabetic, but being diabetic doesn’t mean that sugar will kill you. Enjoying a small piece of cake, or a few pieces of chocolate will certainly not do a lifetime of damage to a diabetic. Straying away from the lectures, and allowing the diabetic in your life to enjoy a few sweets, is a great way to treat them.

KNOW THE RIGHT ALTERNATIVES

Diabetics don’t have to cut sweets out of their lives entirely, but they do have to know what are viable options for sweets, and which options do more damage than they do good. The primary alternative that people think of is dried fruit. While dried fruit does have the chewy texture that gummy candies do, and is still sweet, dried fruit is actually much more processed and contains more sugar, meaning it does more damage. Find sugar free candies or sweets to use instead!

Make sure that you show diabetic that you love, just how much you care. The Metabolic Research Institute works hard every day to find a treatment to this difficult, and life changing, disease. Making sure that you help any diabetics in your life maintain their blood sugar level, while still offering a way to enjoy the holiday, is already a great way to treat them!
