Connections. They are at the core of most of the things we treasure in life. They are vital to establishing our families, friendships, work, intellectual pursuits and much more. When the right ones are made, possibilities -- and even worlds -- expand, fueling progress and improving lives. Providing AID Where Appropriate Which is why we are establishing connections -- with companies and technologies -- that bring AID and convenience to those living with diabetes. This is an important step to streamlining daily diabetes care. By connecting our integrated continuous glucose monitors (iCGMs) with other diabetes partners, to become an automated insulin delivery (AID) system, we’re giving people more time to spend living a happier and fuller life. For years, managing diabetes involved frequent time- and thought-consuming tasks undertaken around the clock to ensure glucose levels were within acceptable ranges. The introduction of iCGM systems, like FreeStyle Libre 2 and FreeStyle Libre 3, revolutionized testing, allowing users to get accurate glucose readings and trends without painful fingersticks.1 Unlike a blood glucose monitor reading, these systems capture and show additional data insights into where glucose levels were, are at currently, and where they are heading. But what if that data were connected to an algorithm that determined how much insulin was needed? And then to an insulin pump that automatically delivered it in the background? The more behind-the-scenes work done by innovative tech, the less hands-on involvement by people with diabetes who have many more interesting things to think about. No more constant concern about checking numbers, figuring out insulin dosages and getting it onboard. Such is the promise of integrating our FreeStyle Libre 2 and FreeStyle Libre 3 tech to become part of an AID system and taking the guess work out of insulin delivery.
