The second roundtable of the year focused on Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM). Dr. Katarina Braune, a specialist in pediatrics and diabetologist with proven expertise in digital health, delivered a keynote address with the following insights:
Continuous Glucose Monitoring…
- helps people of all diabetes types, ages and genders.
- improves clinical outcomes and the quality of life.
- reduces the incidence of emergencies and inpatient admissions.
- generates valuable data as a base for therapy optimization.
- is a new therapeutic standard in insulin therapy.
- undergoes continuous development (accuracy, size, user experience, functions, etc.).
- is an essential component of closed-loop systems.
- can also help people with (or without) other glucose metabolism disorders.
The OPEN project, in which Dr. Braune plays a leading role, was also discussed in detail. It is a project on "do-it-yourself" or open-source technology for automated insulin delivery in diabetes. In addition, questions concerning the future of glucose monitoring were of great interest to all participants.
