Patient Stories

"I love my continuous glucose monitor because it enables me to do things I’ve always dreamt of doing, like sailing around the world"

Bastian, a German diabetic patient, always wanted to go and sail around the world, until he got diagnosed Type 1 diabetes. His Continuous Glucose Monitor allowed him to sail around the world.

Although skeptical in the beginning, Bastian's sailing crew did allow him to join after he showed them the actual device,  which would not only allow Bastian to verify his condition, but the entire team. This was convincing enough for the rest of the team to let Bastian on board of the boat and realise his dream.
