University of Exeter Medical School. 'The benefits of using intermittent real-time, non-invasive continuous glucose monitoring
in insulin treated frail elderly adults'
(BA Hons RGN, Dip Diabetes)
I understand all too well the difficulty of older adults living with Type 2
Diabetes in Nursing and Residential care receiving insulin therapy.
However, in view of the recent interim findings of the NATIONAL
ADVISORY PANEL ON CARE HOME DIABETES (NAPCHD)1 which
includes references to monitoring of Blood Glucose in Care Homes,
we can now support you with a practical and easy to use
Non-Invasive, Needle-Free skin patch for continuous glucose
monitoring which is invaluable in tracking blood alucose daytime levels
to minimise the risk of hypoglycaemic associated falls and identify the
risk of night time hypoglycaemic episodes avoiding hospitalisation.
We are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of an
individualised nutritional plan for frail older adults with Type 2 Diabetes
and can offer a one-to-one nutritional support service.
