How the Omnipod DASH® System may be associated with a reduction in complications of Type 1 diabetes1

When patients living with Type 1 diabetes struggle to reach their recommended glycaemic goals, it may lead to serious consequences2. The Omnipod® System may lead to improved glycaemic control3,4, and a better Quality of Life5. The Omnipod® System was also associated with reduced frequency of acute complications of Type 1 diabetes such as hypoglycaemia and Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA)1.

The Omnipod® System was associated with significant reductions in severe hypoglycaemic (SH)* episodes for people with Type 1 diabetes vs multiple daily injections (MDI)1†‡

Retrospective observational study

A retrospective observational study from the German and Austrian Diabetes Registry (DPV) showed that at year 3, the frequency of severe hypoglycaemia requiring assistance was significantly lower in Omnipod® System users compared to MDI users (annual rate of severe hypoglycaemia was 4.1% for Omnipod® System users vs 6.3% for MDI users).

The frequency of severe hypoglycaemic coma was low (1.7% with prior treatment), but continued to decrease each year over the 3 years of tubeless pump use (1.4% at year 1, to 1.1% at year 2 to 0.5% at year 3).
