How T1D Athlete Fiona Wylde Uses the InPen to Manage Her Diabetes

– Sponsored Feature –

Fiona Wylde spends most of her waking hours on the water. As an award-winning Stand Up Paddle Boarder (SUP), she goes hours without stepping foot on land. While this may seem challenging enough on its own, enter: Type 1 diabetes (T1D) – something she never lets get in her way.

An intense sport involving hours of exertion, stopping to give yourself an injection in the middle of the ocean is less than ideal. But, with the help of Companion Medical’s InPen and the Dexcom Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM), Wylde is able to manage her disease on and off the water.

“I wanted something that would give me more data so that I could be more accurate with my injections, and actually for me the biggest thing is knowing how much insulin is still on board when I’m heading out in the water so I don’t end up with a random low,” Wylde explains.

An insulin pen that automatically sends insulin doses to an app on your smartphone, featuring insulin-on-board (IOB) tracking and a dose calculator, just like a pump, to avoid stacking and provide more accurate dosing. No buttons, no recharging, no downloading, and no identifying prime doses – the InPen does it all automatically.

Want aggregated insights to show your doctor? Not a problem – the app creates 90 day reports with graphs to give you a snapshot at your past three months.

“I’ve always said, ‘you’re living and thriving even with Type 1 diabetes,'” she said.
