Abbott is now selling its Lingo continuous glucose monitor in the UK. The gadget has been designed to help users track glucose spikes or dips and provide personalized recommendations to reduce them. Each biosensor can be worn for up to two weeks, with insight provided in an accompanying app.

The Abbott Lingo, a glucose monitor, is now on general sale in the UK. The company claims to be the leader in continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) technology, helping users understand the effects of their eating, drinking, stress, and exercise habits on the body. Abbott suggests that possible benefits of reduced fluctuations in glucose levels include higher energy levels, increased focus and better quality sleep.

The minimally invasive Lingo biosensor sticks to your arm with adhesive and a needle slips under the skin, providing real-time insights into your blood glucose levels. The sensor needs to be swapped every two weeks, and, according to a study conducted by Abbott, over 90% of users agree that the application is painless. It is worth noting that Lingo is not intended for medical use or diabetes management. You can use the accompanying Lingo app to view trends and find personalized recommendations for improving your well-being. The app is currently only available for iOS users; it remains to be seen whether or when the Android equivalent will launch.

You can now buy the Abbott Lingo Discovery pack for £89 and the Progress Pack for £300. The Discovery pack contains a single continuous glucose monitor and provides a two-week subscription to the app-based Lingo Program. The Progress pack contains four CGMs for two months of use and a subscription of the same length to the Lingo Program; the plan will then auto-renew at £120 per month.
