A new study commissioned by Dexcom has found that 84% of people surveyed agreed that having diabetes can negatively impact mental health.
The study also found that nearly all those living with diabetes (91%) believed that technology enables them to continue building a balanced lifestyle whilst managing diabetes.
“As a pioneer and leader in real-time CGM, our goal at Dexcom is to simplify and improve diabetes management for every person with diabetes,” says Ben Byrne, Dexcom Country Director of UK and Ireland. Dexcom CGM systems give people with diabetes a full picture of glucose numbers to help them better manage their condition – which, in turn can help them go about their day with more confidence and less stress. This Diabetes Awareness Week and beyond, we’re proud to not only support the diabetes community with our products, but also educate the broader public on diabetes and the physical and mental effects it can have.”
