Infinite possibilities

The flexibility and control that an insulin pump provides can significantly improve the quality of life of someone with diabetes.

Get started today for life with more freedom and fewer worries.

How does it work?

The hybrid closed-loop system works using Diabeloop’s DBLG1, a handheld device which receives data from the Dexcom G6 Continuous Glucose Monitor. DBLG1 relies on real-time glucose data, personalised parameters, and self-learning to adjust Kaleido’s basal rate or to deliver a corrective bolus, for optimised management of type 1 diabetes.

What is a Hybrid Closed Loop?

Diabeloop’s DBLG1’s algorithm intervenes to keep your glucose levels within target range: it takes into account your current and previous glucose levels, along with your meals and activities (recorded by you) to determine the insulin delivery.
DBLG1 device sends data automatically to the cloud-based service YourLoops. You and your healthcare professional can access your data 24/7 via the cloud. No more searching for the right wire! It’s so simple.

How the self-learning algorithm works

The system needs just four pieces of info to get started, and once they’re entered into the system by you and your healthcare professional, DBLG1 self-learning algorithm has everything it needs to run, calculate and adjust your insulin dose as often as every five minutes, whenever it’s needed!

Insulin delivery decreases or stops when your glucose levels are running low and stops or decreases in case of a predicted risk of hypoglycemia. It increases when your glucose levels running high and maintains when your glucose level is stable – the perfect recipe for stable glucose levels and more time spent living your best life!

How the algorithm makes decisions

Glucose level is dropping low

When the hybrid closed-loop system detects or predicts that the glucose level is dropping low (hypoglycemia), it can temporarily reduce or suspend insulin delivery completely to prevent your glucose levels from dropping even lower.

Glucose levels is under hypo threshold

If the system continues to detect a significant drop in glucose levels and suspects that you’re headed for a severe hypo (nobody wants that!), it may take more aggressive actions, like suspending insulin delivery entirely, sounding alarms and giving your some helpful advise to eat some rescue carbs.

Glucose level is running high

When the system detects that the glucose level is running too high (hyperglycemia), it can increase insulin delivery to help bring your glucose levels back within the target range.

Glucose level is stable

In a situation where glucose levels are relatively stable within the target range, the
system will make smaller adjustments to insulin delivery to maintain this stability and keep you cruising.

      1. The Dexcom G6 sensor and transmitter are water resistant and can be submerged in water up to 8 feet (2.4 metres) for up to 24 hours without problems when installed correctly.
      2. Finger sticks are still required for diabetes treatment decisions if symptoms or expectations do not match readings.
