1Study in 240 people with T1D aged 6-70 including 2 weeks of standard diabetes treatment followed by 3 months of using Omnipod 5 in automated mode. Average duration of hyperglycaemia in adults/adolescents and children, standard therapy vs Omnipod 5 over 3 months: 32.4% vs 24.7%; 45.3% versus 30.2%. Median time to hypoglycemia in adults/adolescents and children, standard therapy vs Omnipod 5 over 3 months: 2.0% vs 1.1%; 1.4% versus 1.5%. Brown et al. Diabetes Care (2021). Study in 80 children with T1D aged 2-5.9 years including two weeks of standard diabetes treatment followed by three months of Omnipod 5 use in automated mode. The average length of night (12:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m.) with high blood glucose in children for standard therapy versus Omnipod 5 was 38.4% versus 16.9%. The average length of day (6h to 12h) with high blood glucose in children for standard therapy versus Omnipod 5 was 39.4% versus 29.5%. The median length of night (12:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m.) with low blood sugar in children for standard therapy versus Omnipod 5 was 3.41% versus 2.13%. The median length of day (6h to 12h) with low blood glucose in children for standard therapy versus Omnipod 5 was 3.43% versus 2.46%. Sherr J, et al. Diabetes Care (2022).
