To all our Danish friends!


One of Beat Diabetes Foundations three focus areas is ‘Health Tech’, to facilitate the lives for people living with or related to all types of Diabetes. Even though we have studies and lots of research showing that medical devices can contribute to a longer and better life, we have a long way to go.  

In the Nordic region the majority of people diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes are not offered CGM (Continuous Glucose Monitoring) or a sensor that we use to monitor glucose. The CGM helps you to manage your Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes with fewer fingerstick tests. The sensor measures your glucose levels 24 hours a day and it can be monitored on your device or smartphone. 

Even though there are over one million people diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in the Nordic region, there are very few who know about what CGM is. These people are not normally offered this type of device, even though we know that it can contribute to a longer and better life. The unequal care is a fact in this case! We are therefore incredibly happy to see that our friends at Abbott have started their ‘fritvalgsordning’ in Denmark, meaning that you have the possibility to convert your current testing material into access to sensors. 

We know that this will increase the quality of life for Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetics in Denmark. Read more about it: HERE
