DRWF Podcast: The benefits of CGM devices for people living with diabetes
He added: “Insulin was discovered just over 100 years ago. CGM has only been developed just under 20 years ago, but it is only within the last six years that we have CGM technology that really is beneficial. The current technology basically replaces finger prick testing so that is a more recent change. In addition, the cost of CGM early on, when it was a much smaller market, it was expensive and now it is very approachable.”
Representatives from Dexcom team will be exhibiting at the upcoming DRWF United Through Diabetes event on Saturday, 16th September at Chesford Grant, Kenilworth where they will also be facilitating a CGM workshop.
On the role of working with charity organisations, Jake said: “Charities and patient organisations are incredibly important because they are an independent advocate for better care. Charities play an incredibly important role in advocating for access to the technology.”
