  • Patent number: 11331051
    Abstract: A system and method to provide guidance for diabetes therapy includes determining glycemic risks based on an analysis of glucose data. The analysis includes visualization of a glucose median, the variability of glucose in a patient, and the risk of hypoglycemia. An Advanced Daily Patterns report includes a visualization of an ambulatory glucose profile and a glucose control measure. The glucose control measure provides a highly visible and understandable display of the glucose condition of a patient visually expressed in the categories of low glucose, median glucose, and glucose variability.

  • Publication number: 20220142524
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein relate to an analyte monitoring device having a user interface with a display and a plurality of actuators. The display is configured to render a plurality of display screens, including a home screen and an alert screen. The home screen is divided into a plurality of simultaneously displayed panels, with a first panel displays a rate of change of continuously monitored analyte levels in interstitial fluid, a second panel simultaneously displays a current analyte level and an analyte trend indicator, and a third panel displays status information of a plurality of components of the device. When an alarm condition is detected, the display renders the alert screen in place of the home screen, the alert screen displaying information corresponding to the detected alarm condition. Furthermore, the actuators are configured to affect further output of the analyte monitoring device corresponding to the detected condition.

  • Patent number: 11304664
    Abstract: A system and method provides a glucose report for determining glycemic risk based on an ambulatory glucose profile of glucose data over a time period, a glucose control assessment based on median and variability of glucose, and indicators of high glucose variability. Time of day periods are shown at which glucose levels can be seen. A median glucose goal and a low glucose line provide coupled with glucose variability provide a view into effects that raising or lowering the median goal would have. Likelihood of low glucose, median glucose compared to goal, and variability of glucose below median provide probabilities based on glucose data. Patterns can be seen and provide guidance for treatment.

  • Publication number: 20220000399
    Abstract: Systems, devices, and methods for detecting, measuring and classifying meals for an individual based on analyte measurements. These results and related information can be presented to the individual to show the individual which meals are causing the most severe analyte response. These results can be organized and categorized based on preselected criteria or previous meals and results so as to organize and present the results in a format with reference to glucose as the monitored analyte. Various embodiments disclosed herein relate to methods, systems, and software applications intended to engage an individual by providing direct and timely feedback regarding the individual's meal-related glycemic response.

  • Publication number: 20210225524
    Abstract: Systems, devices, and methods are provided that allow detection of episodes in analyte measurement, prompting a patient to self-report possible causes for the episodes. Correlation of possible causes with detected episodes assists patient behavior modification to reduce the occurrence of episodes.

  • Publication number: 20210161438
    Abstract: Generally, methods of analyte monitoring management, and articles of manufacturing related thereto, are provided. The methods include receiving analyte measurement data and analyzing the analyte measurement data for health related parameters. Recommendations are determined for creating or modifying a treatment program based on the analysis, and provided within a user-interface that enables a user to create or modify the treatment program. Further, generally, methods of for managing analyte measurement data, and articles of manufacturing related thereto, are provided. The methods include receiving analyte measurement data that represent data collected over a time period, and analyzing the analyte measurement data for analyte episodes within that time period. Threshold based episodes and/or rate-of-change based episodes may be determined.

  • Patent number: 11017890
    Abstract: An analyte measurement system includes one or more handheld analyte meters and/or measurement devices and a means for collecting data, preserving data integrity, and uniquely identifying patient data received from multiple sources. For example, provided herein is a means to uniquely identify patients and their data when the data is collected from one or more measurement devices. By providing a way to allow the patients to use multiple sources to collect data, the system described herein provides patients with more flexibility, which should encourage better compliance to protocols. Further, by having a way to uniquely identify patients' data without requiring a patient to only use one analyte meter, for example, data can be centralized and analysis can be done with more assurance that all of the patient's data is being considered in the analyses.
