Tandem Diabetes Care Announces Publication of Real-world Basal-IQ Predictive Low Glucose Suspend Technology Data in Diabetes Technology and Therapeutics Journal
“This data supports the overwhelmingly positive feedback we hear from our customers using Basal-IQ technology and the clinical improvement people often report experiencing after initiating its use,” said
Summary of Hypoglycemia Data Published in Diabetes Technology and Therapeutics1
A retrospective analysis was conducted using deidentified data from the t:connect® diabetes management application. The analysis included data from patients ages 6 and up who had used Basal-IQ technology for at least 21 days between
Use of the t:slim X2 insulin pump with Basal-IQ technology led to an immediate and sustained reduction in hypoglycemic events. In the sub-analysis of people who used a CGM-enabled t:slim X2 pump prior to initiation of Basal-IQ technology, introduction of the feature reduced the mean time spent below 70 mg/dL from 3.0 percent to 1.76 percent, which represents a 45 percent relative risk reduction of hypoglycemia. The sub-analysis of those with nine weeks of Basal-IQ technology use showed that mean time spent below 70 mg/dL decreased sharply on the first day of use and remained low (1.74 percent) over time. Other outcome measures included time in range, mean glucose, hyperglycemia, and total daily dose.

About the t:slim X2 Insulin Pump with Basal-IQ Technology
The simple-to-use t:slim X2 insulin pump with Basal-IQ predictive low glucose suspend technology uses glucose values from an integrated Dexcom G6 continuous glucose monitor to predict and help prevent lows with zero fingersticks*. The t:slim X2 pump includes advanced features like a large color touchscreen, rechargeable battery, Bluetooth® wireless technology, USB connectivity and watertight construction (IPX7)2. It is capable of remote software updates using a personal computer, offering the potential for in-warranty users to access new features as they meet necessary regulatory requirements3. The t:slim X2 pump is up to 38 percent smaller than other insulin pumps and holds up to 300 units of insulin.4
