A prospective power couple: Tandem Diabetes Care and Dexcom

by

The marriage between Dexcom, a leader in continuous glucose monitoring systems, and Tandem Diabetes Care, the developer of the t:slim™ Insulin Delivery System, the first ever touch-screen insulin pump, may produce the first innovative, effective, trendy diabetes management system.

Although Tandem is relatively new to the diabetes scene, the joint venture is a smart move. To marry up with Dexcom is killing two birds with one stone. The customer base of Dexcom is interested in tight control. Trends, whether glucose readings or tech gadgets, are on their radar. Tandem Diabetes Care President and CEO commented, “Tandem learned that design and ease-of-use are critically important to people with diabetes”.

The one-stop-shop of tech savvy, stylish diabetes management is imminent now that these two have been formally coupled with a Development and Commercialization Agreement.

The fairy tale of Marc Anthony and J. Lo hasn’t worked out. However the unison of Tandem Diabetes Care and Dexcom may be wildly popular with the in crowd and long lasting!
