Abbott and WeightWatchers partner on diabetes care

Abbott has announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with WeightWatchers to help people living with diabetes.

The companies will work together to integrate WeightWatchers’ diabetes-tailored weight management program with Abbott’s FreeStyle Libre continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) products to help them better understand and manage their diabetes and weight. Through the partnership, participants can receive glucose insights from the Abbott FreeStyle Libre sensor-based technology that show the impact of food choices, along with WeightWatchers’ diabetes-tailored nutritional guidance, helping users to achieve healthier living goals.

Jared Watkin, SVP of Abbott’s diabetes care business, said “By combining our world-leading FreeStyle Libre glucose monitoring technology with WeightWatchers’ number one doctor-recommended weight loss program, people with diabetes, in particular, those with Type 2 diabetes and less intensively managed by doctors, can have the insights they need to take control of their health.”
