Dexcom, a global leader in real-time continuous glucose monitoring, is inviting members of the diabetes community to express their unique journey with diabetes by creating custom Dexcom CGM patches via a new website.
To kick off the activities in the UK and Ireland, four of Dexcom’s local Celebrity Warriors – celloist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, England rugby player Henry Slade, fitness influencer Eoin Costelloe and model Roxy Horner – have designed their own custom Dexcom CGM patches, showcasing their personal stories to help people with diabetes feel seen and heard wherever they live.
Henry Slade commented: “Raising awareness of diabetes has always been important to me. I had great role models growing up, especially watching my dad successfully manage his diabetes while continuing to play sport, and I’ve learned there’s nothing you can’t do. The patch I’ve designed is a testament to this.”
Dexcom is asking those with diabetes, their family and friends to visit UK.SeeDiabetes.com to design their own custom patch illustrating their personal diabetes story. Dexcom will also be giving away patches to the first 500 designs in the UK and Ireland.
