6 New Diabetes Products To Look For In 2017

6 New Diabetes Products To Look For In 2017

If we learned anything about diabetes products in 2016, it’s that progress can happen faster than we anticipate. The diabetes community was stunned in September when the FDA announced that it had approved Medtronic Diabetes’ MiniMed 670G system, the world’s first pump/sensor system to be able to dose insulin on its own. (Advocacy works!) One of the most exciting things about the approval of Medtronic’s 670G is not only access to the groundbreaking device itself, but the path it paves for similar products – by many companies – to win approval as well. (We’re keeping an eye on Bigfoot Biomedical, Inc, the company that back in July of this year enrolled its first patients in a clinical trial for the Bigfoot smartloop automated insulin delivery system.) Now, as this year comes to a close, we’re listening to the buzz that continues to build around the new diabetes technology coming our way in 2017. The new year will bring a slate of highly anticipated products, including milestone devices like the OneTouch Via (a bolus-only delivery patch) and the above-mentioned Medtronic MiniMed 670G system (widely regarded as a rudimentary artificial pancreas). We’ve rounded up descriptions of some of the most exciting diabetes products expected to hit the market in 2017, followed by an approximate timeframe of when they’ll become available to the public. Sure, what we really want is a cure in 2017, but we’ll take improved quality of life, thanks to new devices and tech, with tremendous gratitude. Animas G5 Integrated Vibe Insulin Pump and CGM System What it is: This pump integrates Dexcom G5 technology with the Animas Vibe system. It’s especially exciting because it’s the only pump of its kind that is available to patients with type one diabetes as young as 2 ye Continue reading >>

The Animas® Vibe® Insulin Pump & Cgm System

The Animas® Vibe® Insulin Pump & Cgm System

3 In a clinical trial, the overall mean absolute relative difference (MARD) between sensor readings and YSI values was 13%. In other words, on average Dexcom G4® PLATINUM sensor readings and YSI readings differed by only 13%. From a study of 60 patients using the Dexcom G4® Sensor with a hand-held receiver first calibrated at 1-hour and then approximately every 12-hours following. Similar overall performance has been seen with 1-hour and 2-hour initial calibration. The transmitter and receiver used in the Dexcom G4® Sensor clinical trial were different than those used with the Animas® Vibe® system, but the Dexcom G4® Transmitter and Animas® Vibe® pump function similarly to the transmitter and receiver used in the trial but with a 2-hour initial calibration. The Animas® Vibe® Insulin Pump and CGM System is intended for the delivery of insulin and for continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) for the management of insulin-requiring diabetes. The Animas® Vibe® System’s CGM, which includes the Dexcom G4® PLATINUM Sensor and Transmitter, is indicated for detecting trends and tracking patterns in persons age 2 and older. The system is intended for single patient use and requires a prescription. Contraindications: Insulin pump therapy is not recommended for people unwilling or unable to test their blood glucose four to six times per day, unwilling or unable to see their healthcare professional regularly, or whose vision or hearing does not allow recognition of pump alerts, warnings, and alarms. The Animas® Vibe® Insulin Pump must be removed before MRI or CT scan, and the Dexcom G4® PLATINUM Sensor and Transmitter must be removed before MRI, CT scan, or diathermy treatment. Taking acetaminophen-containing medications while wearing the sensor may falsely raise sensor Continue reading >>

Animas Vibe Insulin Pump | Animas Uk & Ireland

Small, sleek, and waterproof for up to 24 hours at 2.4m * Colour screen, waterproof, CGM-enabled insulin pump. The Animas Vibe Insulin Pump is the first Dexcom G4 PLATINUM CGM-enabled insulin pump to have a high-contrast colour screen. It delivers rich information, too. Coloured trend arrows and lines show where your glucose is heading and how fast, so you can consider this information, along with the results of fingerstick testing, to help guide therapy adjustments. Unlike other insulin pumps, ours are tested and proven waterproof at 3.6 meters for up to 24 hours.* So you get uninterrupted insulin delivery while swimming or taking a bath, and peace of mind when theres unexpected contact with water. When used with an Energizer L91 Lithium battery the Animas Vibe System lasts for up to 3-4 weeks. Our insulin pumps are compatible with all insulin infusion sets using standard Luer lock connectors, so you are free to find the one that fits you best. Our insetTM II and insetTM 30 are all-in-one infusion sets combining the inserter and infusion set in a single, portable unit. They are a snap to change anytime, anywhere. The Swiss-made motor of the Animas Vibe System can deliver tiny, precise increments of insulin for fine-tuned insulin delivery. The pump delivers a small basal increment (0.025 U/hr) across all the available basal rates (0.025 U/hr to 25 U/hr), to precisely meet your changing needs. Our low bolus increment (0.05 U) helps precisely match insulin with food intake, and corrects high blood sugar readings. Our pumps can calculate a bolus amount to cover the carbs in food (ezCarb), and automatically calculate a correction dose of insulin based on the latest blood sugar reading (ezBG). The Dexcom G4 PLATINUM Sensor is the most accurate in the market today.1,2 Know y Continue reading >>

Animas Corporation To Close Operations And Exit Insulin Pump Market

Animas Corporation To Close Operations And Exit Insulin Pump Market

Company will work with Medtronic as a partner-of-choice to help ensure a smooth transition for patients on insulin pumps Animas has selected Medtronic plc (NYSE: MDT), a world leader in diabetes, as its partner-of-choice to facilitate a seamless transition for patients, caregivers and healthcare providers. Patients using an Animas insulin pump will be offered the option to transfer to a Medtronic pump. Patient safety and continuity of care is of utmost importance and Animas will continue to provide customer service, training and warranty support, including providing pump supplies that are used in conjunction with the Animas® Vibe® and OneTouch Ping® insulin pumps, through a transition period. “We recognize that patients living with diabetes rely on our products to provide critical care, and we want to reassure them that we will be with them every step of the way throughout this transition,” said Valerie Asbury, General Manager of Animas Corporation. “Our number one priority is ensuring patients have a seamless experience as they transition to Medtronic. For over 30 years, Medtronic has been a global leader in the treatment of those living with diabetes, and we are confident they will provide outstanding support to our patients and their healthcare teams.” “We are incredibly grateful to our patients and healthcare partners for the trust, confidence and loyalty they have placed in Animas products over the last 12 years,” Asbury said. “With changing needs of customers, rapidly evolving market dynamics, and increased competitive pressures, it proved too difficult to sustain the insulin pump business and we decided to pursue an exit of the business. This decision was extremely difficult and comes following the extensive exploration of all other viable option Continue reading >>

How Much Do Diabetes Supplies/medications Cost In The U.s.?

How Much Do Diabetes Supplies/medications Cost In The U.s.?

While everyone’s diabetes treatment plan, medications, and technology may be different, there is one thing we can all agree on: diabetes is expensive. In two previous posts at The Perfect D, I gave some sense of what the bare minimum of care for a U.S. adult with Type 1 diabetes would be and also financial resources and programs to help with the financial burden of living with diabetes. However, this post is about how much it could cost an adult with Type 1 diabetes if they used the technology and medications that are currently out on the market (and thought of as “the latest and greatest”) and paid out of pocket with no insurance. Research on this topic has shown me that: 1) prices can fluctuate wildly, so it pays to shop around and 2) there is a very big gap (financially, medically, and technologically) between the bare minimum and “surviving” and actually utilizing the tools and latest technology that is out there. So, the hypothetical person for this exercise is a Type 1 adult in the United States who weighs 60kg, just like the other calculation post I did. Ground Rules These prices are accurate on the websites I have referenced for December 1, 2014. They may change, they may add shipping, they may not offer the services, technology, or drugs on their website after this is posted. These prices are not a guarantee. They are to be used as a reference. The listing of prices/websites on this post does not mean that I endorse the company or product or service. I have not listed all the products available on the market for people with Type 1 diabetes. I have listed major ones to give you an idea of major manufacturers’ costs for the products that are available for general public viewing. I did not call any companies and ask for pricing. Why? Because I believe Continue reading >>

Animas Vibe Brings Dexcom Cgm Onto The Pump Screen

Animas Vibe Brings Dexcom Cgm Onto The Pump Screen

twitter summary: Animas Vibe brings Dexcom CGM onto the pump screen, eliminating the need to carry a receiver. Plus, a guide to choosing a new pump. The Animas Vibe insulin pump will begin shipping in the US this month following FDA approval on November 25. The pump can talk directly to the Dexcom G4 Platinum transmitter, bringing CGM data right onto the Vibe’s screen and eliminating the need for a separate Dexcom CGM receiver (though one can still be used, if desired; see below). The advance represents improved convenience – combined viewing of CGM and insulin data allows for better real-time decision-making, as well as more comprehensive downloads. The Vibe is the first pump on the market to integrate Dexcom CGM, and it has received good reviews since it first became available in Europe in 2011. Aside from integrating the Dexcom and a few changes to the user interface, the Animas Vibe is largely identical in look, feel, and design to its predecessor, the OneTouch Ping (available since 2008). This piece discusses my experience trying out the Vibe over the last few weeks, assesses upgrade/cost details, and evaluates some key factors to consider for those choosing between the six different pumps now available (Animas Vibe, Asante Snap, Insulet OmniPod, Medtronic MiniMed 530G, Roche Accu-Chek Spirit Combo, and Tandem t:slim). Dexcom CGM Data on the Animas Vibe Biggest wins CGM value + Insulin-On-Board screen provides an outstanding real-time snapshot of current glucose/insulin state; one button push to access. One fewer device to carry around (but if desired, a separate G4 Platinum receiver can be used along with the Animas Vibe). Very simple setup to get G4 Platinum data on pump. Areas for Improvement CGM trend-graph screen is harder to read and lower resolution than Continue reading >>

Onetouch Vibe™ Plus Insulin Pump Earns Fda Approval And Health Canada License And Is First Pump Integrated With The Dexcom G5® Mobile Continuous Glucose Monitor

Onetouch Vibe™ Plus Insulin Pump Earns Fda Approval And Health Canada License And Is First Pump Integrated With The Dexcom G5® Mobile Continuous Glucose Monitor

New system to enable exceptional glucose measuring accuracy and precise insulin delivery for even the most insulin-sensitive people with diabetes CHESTERBROOK, Pa., Dec. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Animas Corporation, part of the Johnson & Johnson Diabetes Care Companies (JJDCC), announced today that it has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval, and Health Canada's authorization for the sale of the OneTouch Vibe™ Plus Insulin Pump and Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System for the treatment of patients age two and older living with diabetes. The OneTouch Vibe™ Plus is the first and only insulin pump integrated with Dexcom G5® Mobile CGM technology, combining accurate and precise insulin dosing technology from Animas with the most accurate CGM sensing technology from Dexcom. This system will enable patients to see their glucose reading at all times either on their pump or using the Dexcom G5® App on their smart phone, and to deliver the precise amounts of insulin they may need from the pump. The Dexcom G5® Transmitter collects blood glucose readings from the Dexcom sensor and wirelessly sends them to the patient's OneTouch Vibe™ Plus Insulin Pump screen and compatible smart device using the Dexcom G5® Mobile System and app. This will enable patients using the pump and their caregivers to access CGM data wherever it is most convenient for them, and to make informed diabetes management decisions. In addition to the primary smart device, glucose data can be shared with up to five people utilizing the Dexcom Follow App. "People living with diabetes will no longer have to pull out their pump to read their glucose readings. By having constant access to glucose readings on their pump and now their smart devices, the OneTouch Vibe™ Plus will give Continue reading >>

Insulin Pump Options For Current Animas Customers

Insulin Pump Options For Current Animas Customers

Johnson and Johnson announced on October 5, 2017 that it is exiting the insulin pump business and will no longer make and sell the Animas Vibe and OneTouch Ping insulin pumps in the U.S. and Canada. Diabetes Daily shared what Animas pump users need to know including information on who is affected and what to do if you currently have a warranty or are out of warranty. If this affects you and you are now looking into insulin pump options, there are replacement programs from Medtronic, Tandem, and Insulet. Animas has partnered with Medtronic for this transition, but insulin pump users should realize that they do have a choice in which insulin pump they use and they should think about the features of each pump, how each pump may best aid in diabetes management, and which of the programs offered by Medtronic, Tandem, and Insulet may benefit them. People with diabetes should also contact the insulin pump company they ultimately choose as a replacement to make sure they understand all the fine print as well as speak with their insurance company to determine coverage of supplies, etc. Medtronic Medtronic’s program is available to current Animas customers. Options differ depending on when the Animas pump warranty expires. Highlights: MiniMed 670G is available for U.S. customers MiniMed 630G is available for Canadian customers Highlights for warranties expiring on or after September 30, 2019: You will transition to the MiniMed 630G insulin pump This option will be available beginning May of 2018 This will be at no cost at that time To switch to a Medtronic pump before May 2018 or the warranty expiration, you can use an in-warranty upgrade program called Switch2System Visit Medtronic’s page for Animas customers for more information.

Fda Approves Animas Onetouch Vibe Plus

Fda Approves Animas Onetouch Vibe Plus

Read Insulin Pump Helps Woman Escape Kidnapping. In late December 2016, Johnson & Johnson announced it had gained FDA approval for the (read carefully) Animas OneTouch Vibe Plus. Whats the major difference between the two systems? This insulin pump system is integrated with the Dexcom G5 CGM technology. Got that? The Vibe used the G4, and the Vibe Plus uses the G5. Dexcom had a similar kind of regulatory year in 2015, when it announced FDA approval for the G4 in January, and approval for the G5 in August of that year. As Diabetes Mine reported at the time of the G5 approval, the swiftness of FDA approval caught even Dexcom execs off-guard. Read The Pros and Cons of Pump Therapy. There are, of course, a lot of similarities between the Vibe and the Vibe Plus, which was also approved by Health Canada. Both have the selling point of being approved for use by children ages 2 and up, and both allow the ability to monitor glucose readings on the pump and on smartphone devices. The biggest difference is that Vibe Plus users dont have to carry a separate receiver for the CGM end of the technology. The Vibe Plus approval news allowed Johnson & Johnson to close out the year on a good news cycle. Earlier in the year, the company warned customers th at the OneTouch Ping was theoretically vulnerable to hacking, according to a Reuters report . A security firm had determined that a hacker standing within 25 feet of a pump user could trick the pump system into giving an insulin dose if the Ping was in a wireless setting. While such a risk was extremely low, it represented the first time that a medical device company warned customers of hacking risk. There have been no reports of similar concerns with the Vibe pump systems. A commercial release date for the Vibe Plus has not yet been se Continue reading >>

Getting My Vibe On With Animas, After Years Of Anticipation

Getting My Vibe On With Animas, After Years Of Anticipation

For two weeks during the holidays, I test-drove the new Animas Vibe combo device (Animas insulin pump plus Dexcom continuous glucose monitor) approved by FDA just over a month ago. We appreciate this opportunity for a trial-run of this exciting new device before it officially hits the market in the coming weeks. This is only the second combined insulin pump-CGM product ever made available in the U.S. (after Medtronic’s system), and the first to include the popular Dexcom G4, and it’s been a loooong time coming; Dexcom and Animas first announced their joint-development agreement back in January 2008, and this integrated system was launched overseas in mid-2011. There’s been a lot of buildup here in the States, before and after Animas filed with regulators in April 2013, so I had high hopes going into this two-week trial. {Disclosure: JnJ supplied me with the full system and supplies to last circa 16 days. As always, this was under the agreement that they would have no influence over what we say or write.} In the words of my awesome Animas educator during my training in late December: You can think of this system in terms of a dwelling — the two components used to be separate housing units, but now they co-exist under the same roof and are more like different rooms within one big home. Now anyone using it gets all the benefits of that combined home’s plumbing, heating, air conditioning, and so on. I found that there are good and not-so-good things about the Vibe, and as with everything, opinions will vary. Sadly, nothing wowed me personally about the Vibe, and even the built-in CGM isn’t enough to convince me it was worth the wait, or convince me to purchase this system for myself. Keep in mind: I’m coming at this from more than a decade of happy Medtronic p Continue reading >>

Insulin Pump Rundown

Insulin Pump Rundown

Choosing an insulin pump doesn’t have to be an overwhelming process. Should you go with a more traditional pump where you can monitor your insulin levels directly? Are you looking for a model that works with a BGM monitor and allows you to administer insulin via a remote? Maybe you need a pump that offers integration with a CGM system. What about size? Color? To use tubes or not to use tubes? Presenting the options so you can find out what pump best fits your lifestyle is our goal. So, with several models on the market, let us help you sort through the choices by taking a look at what’s available and breaking down the various features of each. We’ve separated the pumps into four categories: pumps that incorporate or work with a Blood Glucose Monitor (BGM) and offer Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM), pumps with just CGM capability, pumps with just a BGM, and standalone pumps that don’t work with a BGM or offer CGM. Hybrid Closed-Loop System The 670 G system is the newest member to the Medtronic pump family and the first hybrid closed-loop system. In other ways, it is a like a “basal modulator” where you have to still bolus but it predicts your basal rate. Every 5 minutes, the auto-mode option (hybrid closed-loop) automatically adjusts basal insulin delivery based on your sugar levels to keep you range. It is excellent at catching lows because it stops your insulin dosage 30 minutes before you reach your pre-selected low limits, then it will automatically restart insulin when your levels recover. Possible concerns: excessive alerts and extended menu that needs clearing. Only approved for ages 14+ because it has a total daily dose requirement of at least 8 units a day. Feeling of loss of control of management with closed-loop system. Pumps with BGM and CGM ca Continue reading >>
