Patient Case Study - Maria

Challenge

Controlling glucose levels in diabetes patients presents a dynamic, ever-changing challenge for care providers. Clinicians are expanding their definition of optimal glucose control to include not only A1c, but other metrics such as time in range, in order to decrease the frequency and severity of diabetes-related complications. Recent research has demonstrated that each 10% decrease in time in range is associated with a 64% increase in retinopathy occurrence.

Opportunity

Offer a lifestyle-friendly solution that encourages and enables strong adherence and wear time, with exceptional accuracy that is maintained for up to 90 days.  

Meet Maria

Maria is a 45-year-old Type 1 diabetes patient who was diagnosed at age 23. While she’s always known the importance of having a good A1c, her pursuit of that goal was sometimes at the expense of her overall glucose control, resulting in some hypoglycemic events that required treatment. A former Dexcom G5® user, Maria liked the accuracy it offered, but wasn’t happy with how often the sensor dislodged during work or exercise. After her doctor suggested trying Eversense, Maria quickly increased her time in range, while avoiding the serious lows that plagued her before. And, with three types of alerts—visual, auditory, and vibratory—Eversense provides Maria with early detection of lows, without interrupting her work day. After 9 months of using Eversense, Maria has improved her time in range (70-180 mg/dL) to 87% while almost completely eliminating serious lows.

The Eversense® Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM) System is indicated for continually measuring glucose levels in persons age 18 and older with diabetes for up to 90 days. It is intended to complement, not replace, fingerstick blood glucose monitoring. The sensor insertion and removal is performed by a health care provider. The Eversense CGM System is a prescription device; patients should talk to their health care provider to learn more. For important safety information, see https://eversensediabetes.com/safety-info/
