GNSentry, il lettore per FreeStyle Libre che non ti aspetti

Era nell’aria da tempo, complice la necessità di avere un Libre con letture continue e allarmi, e un dispositivo piccolo, leggero e facilmente portabile senza dover fare acrobazie e usare particolari accorgimenti per evitare distacchi, disconnessioni e configurazioni complesse.

Se Blucon e MiaoMiao giungevano da noi dopo un lungo viaggio intercontinentale, GNSentry è stato prodotto in Spagna, precisamente a Valencia, ed è acquistabile da qui per ora ad un prezzo di lancio. Insomma un lettore latino, pulsante e caldo, che dietro ha una storia di amicizia e impegno. Il progetto, messo a punto dopo un lavoro lungo e prove durate tre anni, è nato per aiutare un amico con una figlia affetta da diabete di Tipo 1. Tre amici, esperti nel campo dell’informatica, hanno provato e riprovato senza sosta, hanno cercato con tenacia la migliore soluzione per dotare Libre con allarmi e letture continue. Le versioni del “braccialetto” e della sua app sono cambiate nel tempo, per arrivare a quello che oggi sembra un leggero nido per far dormire Libre e genitori.

Confezione

Il lettore, spedito a DeeBee dal produttore per i test, arriva in fretta, in una scatola munita di sigillo. Buon segno!

Contenuto

Oltre al lettore, nella scatola troviamo un cavetto micro USB (ebbene sì, si ricarica mediante la classica presa), una graffetta per resettare, simile a quelle usate per togliere la SIM dagli smartphone, le istruzioni d’uso e tre fasce di diverse misure dotate di velcro.

Non servono adesivi (che sono a rischio di allergie), né gusci, tantomeno fasce aggiuntive. Il lettore ospita il sensore Libre al suo interno, riparandolo anche da urti e strappi. Ha un foro per il reset che serve almeno la prima volta dopo averlo caricato, pronto per metterlo in funzione.

Peso e dimensioni

Se a prima vista sembra più grande dei suoi predecessori, Blucon e MiaoMiao, messo a confronto, risulta essere non solo meno ingombrante, ma una soluzione molto più facile da portare, almeno sul braccio.

MiaoMiao con Kiwi e GNSentry a confronto

Ormai la leggerezza si gioca sui grammi.

Impermeabilità

Il dispositivo, con un bel nome complicato, ma da noi già battezzato “el gato“, sembrava sensibile all’acqua visto il normalissimo lo slot di ricarica.

Invece, oltre alla certificazione CE, ha anche quella IP67. Quindi  resistente all’acqua dolce a 1 metro di profondità per 30 minuti.

Compatibilità

L’app messa a punto dal team spagnolo è compatibile con quasi tutti i cellulari Android e iOS. Per ora, come d’altronde tutti i suoi concorrenti, il lettore dialoga con FreeStyle Libre, in attesa di decriptare Libre 2, per ora disponibile solo per alcuni pazienti in Germania.

Dopo averlo caricato cominciamo a provarlo, per ora solo ed esclusivamente con la sua app.

Non resta che darci appuntamento al prossimo articolo, con i primi test sul campo…

«My week with Libre 1, Libre 2 and xDrip+. That’s one I prefer»

First I would like to thank Deebee.it, specially Fabrizio Casellato and Irida Cami, the opportunity to test Abbott Freestyle Libre 2. Without them, this comparative test would not be possible.

Who am I?

My name is Sérgio Silva, I’m from Terceira island (Azores – Portugal), I’m 36 years old, I’m an IT technician and paraglider. My Diabetes appeared since I was 16 years old (1998). By August the 7th, 2018, I create the Portuguese Facebook group, entitled DiabéT1cos (www.diabet1cos.pt). I’m a user of an artificial pancreas (AndroidAPS + Accu-Check Combo) since August 2018 and I’ve recently collaborated in the translation into Portuguese of xDrip+ and AndroidAPS.

English translation by Sara Santos

What is the comparative test?

The objective is to compare Libre 1 with Libre 2, using official readers with the Libre 1 data, with Miao Miao and xDrip+ (with calibration plugin Dactrisae, recommended by the app development team for transmitters such as Miao Miao and Blucon). The Contour Next One meter is used to measure blood glucose with a capillary test.

It is important to note that since using the FreeStyle Libre (January 2018), it has been almost a general rule for the sensor to show lower values than the capillary test. So, most of the time, when it indicates that I’m in “Lo” when I can even be with 80 or even 90mg/dL. Let’s see how it goes now with Libre 2…

How will it be performed?

To ensure a more reliable comparison:

  • The two Libres on the same arm, relatively close to each other since the readers only read the sensor corresponding to the version of the reader;

  • Sensors with same expiration date: 2019-07-31
    • Libre 1: LOT 180909Q
    • Libre 2: LOT 3515698

  • Sensors placed and activated at the same time (unlike what I usually do). I did not put them in 24 hours before activating them, as this way it is possible to check the reaction of Libre 2 on the first day of use following what is officially recommended..
  • Software: xDrip+ build 22 febbraio 2019 withTicwatch E as”collector”.
  • Contour Next strips:
    • LOT DP7KPEC01A – Expiration date: 2019-10

  • Readers:
    • Libre 1: 2.2.13/0.94
    • Libre 2: 1.0.0.12/1.03

Performed tests

  • Comparison of capillary test values with Libre 1, Libre 2 and xDrip+
  • Check the Libres readings when the blood glucose value is updated on xDrip+.
    • In situations where:
      • Stable Blood Glucose
      • Fast ascent/descent
      • Slow ascent/descent
  • Final comparison of sensor usage; average of 7 and 14 days.

Let’s start!

Sensors activated on February 22nd, 2019 at 11pm.
NB: Values in parentheses represent the difference between the blood glucose value and the capillary test result.
All values are in mg/dL.

1st DAY – February 23rd

First Reading 23/February at 00h

  • Capillary: 102
  • Libre 1: Error “Try to read again in 10 minutes”
  • Libre 2: 89 (-13)

Libre 1 presented the error “Try in 10 minutes”, I was testing for 30 minutes and the error continued. I thought it would be better to remove it and place a new sensor.
That way, there wasn’t much time wasted comparing it to Libre 2. When I removed the sensor I noticed that the tip of the flexible strip of the sensor was crooked (I did not have one with the same expiration date as the Libre 2). I activated the sensor around 00:30, taking the first reading and calibration around 2:00 in the morning… I fell asleep and could not do the test one hour after activation.

And at the end of the 7th day, Libre 1 ends up dying, the readings were already strange on the 1st of March, and then it ends up giving a reading error, so that the reading is repeated in 10 minutes and after a while there is an error so that the sensor can be changed. There was supposed to be a second part of the test, with comparison of the 14 days, but in this case I end up staying only for the first 7 days.

Statistics for the first 7 days

Averages of the difference between the finger test and the values presented in the 26 tests performed (not counting the first test, since Libre 1 did not present values in the first result):

  • Libre 1: -17.12
  • Libre 2: -6.12
  • xDrip+: -0,73

Average of 7 days

Libre 1: 87
Libre 2: 98
xDrip+: 105

A1c

(converting the average of the Libre readers as an estimate)

Libre 1: 4,83%
Libre  2: 5,44%
xDrip+: 5,3%

xDrip+ calibration chart for the 7 days of use

TIR (Time in Range)

Range of the target: 70-170

  • Libre 1: Above: 2%. In range: 67%. Below: 31%
  • Libre 2: Above: 1%. In range: 75%. Below: 22%
  • xDrip+: Above: 2%. In range: 91%. Below: 5%

Patterns of 7 days

My conclusions

In my opinion, Libre 2 behaved much better than Libre 1 and I noticed this in the first 24 hours. As I said before, they end up being the most critical hours in relation to the values presented. After the initial 24 hours, and as usual, Libre 1 always showed much lower values than the test result on the finger and xDrip+. In turn, Libre 2 indicated higher values than Libre 1 and closer to the capillary test. Observing my results, Libre 1 would spend most of the time in hypo, which does not correspond to the truth. Therefore, if I trusted only Libre 1 (without capillary tests) I would always be correcting a non-existent hypo, which in turn would increase the laboratory test of my A1c. I still trust the values of xDrip+ and if I didn’t, I wouldn’t be able to use artificial pancreas. After all, all decisions regarding the amount of insulin are analyzed at each result received, every 5 minutes.

In this test, we can also see that many of the irregular values of xDrip+ have an influence on the malfunction of Libre 1, which ended up dying after 7 days.

In order of preference:

  1. Libre 1 + Miao Miao + xDrip+ solution
  2. Libre 2
  3. Libre 1
Is Libre 2 an alternative to Miao Miao with xDrip+?

My answer is no! It is not an alternative, neither far nor close, who was waiting for the Libre 2 not to have to buy the Miao Miao, in my opinion was a waste of time.

Libre 2 is a FGM (Flash Glucose Meter), instead of Miao Miao that converts a Libre into CGM (Continuous Glucose Meter), which makes it necessary to pass the reader through the sensor to have the value in an episode of hypo or hyper.

It seems that the only data that is transmitted by Bluetooth is the information to trigger the alarm. A curious thing happened to me only once and I don’t even know how I did it, I could see in my mobile phone, in the Bluetooth menu a device called “ABBOTT56456” (the numbers weren’t these, because I couldn’t memorize them), but right after that it disappeared. Is there anything planned to connect to the mobile phone, when near the reader, as a warning for hypo or hyper?

The alarms on the xDrip are silenced for a certain time, by default 30 minutes in the hypo and 2 hours in the hyper, the time that supposedly takes us to get out of a hypo and the insulin acts in case of hyper and, in case we continue in hypo or hyper, the alarm rings again. In the case of Libre 2, it is played only once in each episode, that is, if you have hypo and silence the alarm, it will only ring again when you leave the hypo and enter it again, which in a night hypo and in the middle of tiredness and sleep, may not have great effectiveness in preventing serious episodes. On the other hand, I understand how it is not possible to calibrate Libre 2 and how it happens to me to have values always lower than the capillary test, Libre 2 would be beeping for most of the day. Another available alarm refers to the distance of the reader in relation to the sensor for more than 6 meters, which really must have the idea of alerting that we may not be being monitored, in cases of hypo and hyper, but I keep thinking, if I get so far away, how will I hear the alarm? If I leave home and leave the reader behind by forgetting, how will I hear the alarm?

And how will remote monitoring of glycemia be done? As far as I can see, to date, it will be just like in Libre 1, using LibreLink on an NFC-enabled mobile phone to pass the phone through the sensor to read the value and then transmit it to the follower, who uses LibreLinkUp, but without receiving the graph of the day and only the value seen at the moment.

It’s curious that Libre 1 was released more than 2 years ago in Portugal and the two apps are not available for download at Play Store (Google) or App Store (Apple) in Portugal.

What about the calibration?

It’s unavailable in Libre 1 and 2… as seen in this test and by the average of the tests performed at some time of the day, the xDrip+ with calibration is much closer to the value of the capillary test and the Libres are not.

We remember that these are not absolute conclusions, but relative to the experience of the writer. To draw safe conclusions, Diabetes Technology Society tools to calculate risk around MARD need more data points (this article reports 26).
The values presented by xDrip are more often higher than capillary glucose: this, especially when used with an AAPS system, could create a risk of overdosing insulin.
Thanks to Tim Street for the precious feedback.

Dexcom G6 vs Eversense XL vs Dexcom G5. Part one.

We tested the two Dexcom top sensors and the Eversense implantable sensor. That's what happened.

Author: Mario Migliarese

Saturday is always my favorite day, working week ended, the prospect of a Sunday with my family. Perfect day to start the test. It will certainly be challenging, it will take great attention and spirit of observation, but I’m sure it will be worth it. I’ll use my faithful Eversense, Dexcom G5 and the latest arrival at Dexcom’s house, the long-awaited G6, at the same time. I had a little initial hiccup with the apps because I’m running everything on the same mobile phone.

Here they are, all together after a daring trip, in Italy and beyond. Eversense, already implanted on July 24 remains obviously in the arm, and I put the other two “guests” on the abdomen. One on each side, so to have an identical site for both of them.

Inserting the G6 is dramatically easier. One click and it’s done. Too bad there is still an impressive amount of plastic to dispose of, nothing to do with the other sensors. It is not to be underestimated, because in my opinion preserving the environment is very important.

To avoid early detachments, given my very busy lifestyle and the fairly old Dexcom G5, I preferred to use a veil of Mastisol to increase grip.

At first glance the G6 will last longer. As it was designed, very close to the patch and not tilting like its brothers born earlier, you can hardly get caught in the clothes. I may be used to Eversense, which once removed the transmitter is as if it were not there, but I must be very careful not to take the two Dexcom away drying after a shower or during a game.

I’m amazed by the initial alignment of the three sensors, I can’t believe the very few points of difference between the different technologies. I may seem exaggerated, but it’s really exciting:

Eversense: 127
Dexcom G5: 121
Dexcom G6:116

The dance of glycemic values begins to change pace when (on purpose) I eat a cookie in the middle of the morning. And this screen says it all.

Eversense: predictive warning of hyperglycemia
Dexcom G5: oblique arrow on rise
Dexcom G6: stable arrow

Eversense is immediately reactive in perceiving the ascents and descents, the G5 follows it closely and the G6 more slowly. But we’re talking about a few minutes, not more. And I don’t know if this could also depend on the sites where I inserted the two Dexcom.

But also between the two sensors of the house Dexcom I see differences: the G5 tends to be more “ready” to climb, while in the descents happens the opposite. The newcomer is more ready.

I noticed that the two Dexcom hold the rod a bit higher than Eversense, the values are a few points away, but up.

Glucometer: 110
Eversense: 106 (deviation from the glucometer: -3,5 %)
Dexcom G5: 120 (deviation from the glucometer: +9,0 %)
Dexcom G6: 134 (deviation from the glucometer: +21,8 %)

Undoubtedly, the juiciest observations are those related to out-of-range blood sugar levels. It’s interesting to see what happens during hypoglycaemias. So, I specially made a slightly abundant bolus (don’t do it!). Here is the result:

Eversense: 66
Dexcom G5: 72
Dexcom G6: 66

Note: I have only calibrated Eversense and the Dexcom G5: seeing this precision is really amazing!

And if the blood sugar levels were acceptable during the day, on Saturday evening, thanks to a dinner with friends, a prolonged hyperglycemia put the whole system to a hard testing. I let you imagine a “singing” night between Dexcom alarms and Eversense vibrations. To preserve my nervous system, we decided to remove the alarms from the two different twins and have them followed at a distance by someone else on the DeeBee team. Sick common half jubilation? Was that the saying?

But I’ll talk about this sweet night concert in the next article…

My first two weeks with Miao Miao and his app

This article has been translated with an automatic algorithm. We are looking for volunteers to translate our free services and articles into English. If you are interested, please contact us here: info@deebee.it.

I had the opportunity to have Miao Miao a few weeks ago and realized that in order to use it immediately I would have to learn… Chinese. A language not very close to mine. Being tough in nature, I did not pull back.

I couldn’t wait; I got stuck with impunity and I did! It took a few days before I could use the app with my iPhone. Apart from the language difficulty, which can be overcome as soon as the English version is released, the app is quite complex. But it is also complete and, in addition to the usual options, gives the possibility to exchange information and compare notes with other people who use it.

Day by day, I have understood more and more and my enthusiasm has increased. Within two weeks, I had my blood sugar readings every 5 minutes, there were no problems or disconnections. And that’s not all: blood sugar values were also transferred in parallel to Apple Health.

To my surprise I realized that after two weeks and a few hours of use, the remaining capacity of the battery was 60%!

The second FreeStyle Libre in CGM is being tested with my Samsung S4 mini with xDrip + (special). After 5 days and 4 hours, the battery still shows 80%.

If the communication between xDrip + and Miao Miao remains as good and stable as the original Chinese app, it will be a really wonderful thing! And I would be even happier if Miao Miao were integrated into Glimp!

Glimp for Web. From today also shared statistics with diabetes therapist and much more

This article has been translated with an automatic algorithm. We are looking for volunteers to translate our free services and articles into English. If you are interested, please contact us here: info@deebee.it.

Only two weeks have passed since our readers started using Glimp for Web, the latest project by DeeBee. it, the result of careful programming work that allows us to see the FreeStyle Libre sensor’s remote blood glucose in a completely new and extremely easy way. No complicated procedures, but a simple DropBox account and sensor values will be visible from any device.

The many suggestions and the great interest (more than 5000 accesses already made on the portal) have given a new boost to our accelerator. We have added new options and services, useful for both management and data sharing. Obviously, as always, the services are free and extremely simplified, in full DeeBee spirit.

Let’s see in detail what’s new!

Stats

A new button appears in the portal: statistics button. By pressing it, you access the dashboard that provides information about the patient’s blood sugar history.

Summary

The first information is shown on the summary table, which shows the most significant values: average blood glucose, median, percentages that indicate how long we have been in hypoglycemia and hyperglycaemia, standard deviation, and the inevitable glycemia estimated. All this, divided into three columns representing the short, medium and long term.

Distribution

The percentages that, remember, give us a relative representation of the period spent in the target, are then reported visually, through three cakes concerning the last week, the last month and the last quarter.

Percentages

Very useful for correcting both the basal bands (for microinfusions) and the boluses, they follow the three graphs that report the five significant percentiles: the band between 10° and 90° in light colour, the band between 25° and 75° darker and, finally, the demarcation line of the 50th percentile of blue colour. The closer and narrower the bands are, the more homogeneous the blood sugar management is with varying days; the more bands converge towards the blood sugar target, the better the management.

Sharing with diabetes therapist

With the new service, it is possible to share these statistics with your diabetologist: simply provide him with the user and password of his Glimp system (which is based on DropBox, of which we suggest the creation of an ad hoc user). In this case, the statistics will also be available to the doctor at the following address:

www.deebee.it/glimp?mode=stats

Variable range

If your therapy has different ranges, simply access the portal settings and change the hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia thresholds.

International unit of measurement

Given the increasing diffusion of DeeBee. it and Glimp, a final pleasant surprise concerns users from countries where blood glucose values expressed in milligrams per decilitre (mg/dL) are not used, as we do. Also among the settings, it is now possible to change the units of blood glucose measurement in millimoles per litre (mmol/L) which, let’s remember, is the one adopted by the International System and, as such, represents the reference standard worldwide. If mmol/L is selected, the statistics will also be redrawn in the new unit.

Future developments: translation (and the search for translators)

What will the future hold for us? Surely, the ability to view the portal of Glimp for Web also in other languages. We take advantage of this to remind you that on Deebee. it it is already possible to choose the language of view of our articles. To do this, simply choose the language from the side menu “drop-down” in the upper left corner. If you are reading from your smartphone, you can find the “curtain” scrolling towards the bottom.

Are you interested in joining us, helping us in translations? DeeBee. it is constantly looking for volunteers of any nationality who translate articles into their native language.

Nel nostro gruppo affrontiamo ogni tematica inerente il diabete (non solo tecnologia ma anche leggi, sport, alimentazione, accettazione, gestione quotidiana, L104, ecc., sia per adulti che per bambini).
Enjoy!
