$VVOS What to Know About At-Home Sleep Apnea Tests

When one is asleep, the body’s muscles, which include the chest and throat muscles that help in breathing, relax. Obstructive sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that causes breathing to stop involuntarily as individuals sleep. The disorder may cause individuals to wake up with a dry mouth or headache or even feeling tired. It may also cause serious health issues, including stroke and heart disease. A good way to determine if you’re having trouble breathing is to carry out an at-home sleep apnea test.

This test involves the use of a breathing monitor, which is worn and used to track an individual’s breathing effort, oxygen levels and breathing. However, it doesn’t record everything that’s monitored in an overnight sleep study. An overnight sleep study offers a thorough assessment of sleep problems. The study usually takes place at a sleep center, which has a sleep technologist present to capture signals such as leg movements, muscle tone and brain waves for sleep.

Individuals who have specific neuromuscular, breathing or heart problems may be better suited for an overnight sleep study.

Johns Hopkins Sleep Medicine Program clinical director Susheel P. Patil states that individuals who gasp, snort or snore; are obese or overweight; and are sleepy during the day may benefit from an at-home sleep apnea test. However, individuals are advised to discuss their options with their clinical provider before conducting any tests.

So what should one know about the at-home sleep tests?

  • It doesn’t rule out sleep apnea

Unlike at a lab where a physician monitors you, at-home tests may be inaccurate as sensors may fall off during the night.

  • It is convenient.

In comparison to a sleep study at a clinic, at-home sleep tests are less expensive and are used for only a night.

  • It detects breathing patterns using sensors.

These sensors include a probe placed over an individual’s finger to measure oxygen levels as well as other sensors that are placed on one’s chest and abdomen to measure the rise and fall as they breathe.

  • It needs to be prescribed.

Your physician needs to prescribe the test as it’s not an over-the-counter test.

  • They don’t monitor sleep.

From the name, one may assume that these tests monitor an individual’s sleep. However, this isn’t the case, as the sleep test monitors breathing parameters, which will be used to assess whether an individual suffers from sleep apnea. These breathing parameters include the effort it takes to breathe and whether an individual’s breathing is shallow.

To ensure you get accurate results from the test, it’s best to sleep on your side. This is because sleep apnea is usually worse when individuals lie on their backs. Once you get a definitive diagnosis of sleep apnea, don’t despair. There are a number of products and treatments developed by companies such as Vivos Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: VVOS), which can help you on your journey to recovery if you have mild or moderate OSA.

$NMRD Desperate for Solutions, Diabetes and Obesity Healthcare Sectors Find Answers, Hope in Innovative Tech

NetworkNewsWire Editorial Coverage: Navigating today’s healthcare systems can be overwhelming. Outrageous costs combined with complex processes have created a healthcare system renowned for overpriced inefficiency; PolicyAdvice reported that in 2018, the global healthcare market topped $8.45 trillion, which represents about 10% of GDP in developed countries. Clearly the industry is desperate for solutions that both improve health outcomes and lower costs. As with many sectors, those solutions are found in technology. Savvy companies operating in the space are recognizing the power healthcare technology (healthtech) and medical technology (medtech) wield in offering next-generation innovation that answers the call to both flatten the healthcare spending curve and provide patients and providers with treatments that work. Already in place prior to COVID-19, the healthcare tech trend has only accelerated adoption of self-diagnostic and remote solutions that have been welcomed by all. Some companies, such as Nemaura Medical Inc. (NASDAQ: NMRD) (Profile), are focusing on specific areas of unmet medical need, including diabetes and obesity. Nemaura is joined by other astute companies, such as WW International Inc. (NASDAQ: WW), Teladoc Health Inc. (NYSE: TDOC)DexCom Inc. (NASDAQ: DXCM) and DarioHealth Corp. (NASDAQ: DRIO), who are also recognized leaders in these sectors as they work to provide effective, cost-sensitive solutions.

  • UNC study reports only 12% of participants attain optimal metabolic health, resulting in increased risk for diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
  • Nemaura Medical’s proprietary BEAT(R) diabetes platform offers affordable innovation, effective treatment.
  • After soft launch, Nemaura inks deals for 200,000 units with rolling forecast of 2 million sensors over next two years.
  • When partnered with predictive technologies such as AI and machine learning, the future for NMRD platform appears to be vast and diverse.

Distinctively Different from the Rest

The importance of metabolic health on the quality of life cannot be overestimated. Many experts in the field point to five health markers — medicine-free readings of blood glucose, triglycerides, cholesterol, blood pressure and waist circumference — as key indicators to watch and measure. A seven-year study by University of North Carolina researchers reported that only 12% of Americans achieve optimal metabolic health, with poor metabolic health often increasing the risk for diabetes, heart disease, stroke and associated comorbidities. The report noted that patients struggling with obesity posted the poorest results, with only 0.5% of individuals in this group achieving optimal metabolic health.

Unfortunately, the rise in obesity, defined as a body mass index over 30, is fueling an upward trend in diagnoses of diabetes and prediabetes, which are characterized and defined by poor glucose control. Often preventable, diabetes and its increasing prevalence is a cause for concern. The National Diabetes Report indicates that 10.5% of all Americans — and 13% of adults — have the disease, with an incredible 34.5% of Americans identified as prediabetic.

Those numbers are no less alarming worldwide, with 463 million people diagnosed with diabetes globally. Data from the World Health Organization indicates that 3.4 million people worldwide die from diabetes each year, although the actual number of deaths attributed to the disease may be difficult to ascertain because diabetics often suffer from myriad health problems including damaged heart, blood vessels, kidneys, eyes and nerves.

For the past decade, Nemaura Medical Inc. (NASDAQ: NMRD) has focused on developing the world’s first daily-wear, noninvasive glucose sensor and integrated healthcare app. The company’s BEAT(R) diabetes platform, including its proprietary sugarBEAT(R) CGM and proBEAT(TM) offerings, combines noninvasive glucose data processed using artificial intelligence (“AI”) and a digital healthcare subscription service.

These solutions are distinctively different from others in both form and function. The platform is designed to use an integrated approach that supports and enables individuals to succeed in their efforts to lose weight and reverse diabetes or prediabetes. In addition, Nemaura combines an integrated app with proprietary intellectual property and know-how, including more than 30 approved or pending patents across multiple patent families, resulting in a metabolic health program that stands apart from similar options such as NOOM, etc.

The platform was designed to provide Nemaura with the opportunity to diversify, using the exclusive offerings to expand into both horizontal and vertical markets. The company has announced the successful soft launch of its CE-approved medical device in the United Kingdom and is reporting interest from potential partners in Europe and Middle East; diabetes and obesity are widespread in both of these regions. The UK licensee has already ordered more than 200,000 sensors and forecasts a further 2 million for the next 2 years.

The NMRD system can also be adjusted to tackle the complete metabolic health spectrum and other markets, including monitoring body temperature, lactic acid levels, and alcohol and drug ingestion. When partnered with predictive technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, the future for the platform appears to be vast and diverse.

A New Take on Tradition

While continuous glucose monitoring (“CGM”) isn’t new, Nemaura has a new take on the traditional treatment. The company has developed a powerful system complete with mass-market sugarBEAT CGM sensors, analytics, personalized coaching and a metabolic health app. Particularly of note is the company’s innovative sensors. Most sensors available today are invasive, requiring the insertion of a one-centimeter-long filament in the arm, which must remain in place for up to two weeks.

Nemaura’s proprietary sensors require no penetration of the skin. The sensor is simply placed on the surface of the skin much like a Band-Aid. In addition, Nemaura’s sensors do not need to be worn for extended periods. In fact, those dealing with diabetes, prediabetes or obesity typically only need to wear a sensor for a few days each month. What’s more, the individual chooses the time and day, simply disposing of the sensor after use. Fewer sensors used for fewer days means lower costs of disease management.

Data transmission takes place in real time every five minutes, with glucose profiles only needed at the end of each month to keep in check. Patients using the WhyWait program receive guidance for diet and exercise adjustments based on self-monitored blood glucose (“SMBG”). The original weight-loss program was developed at the Joslin Diabetes Centre, with more than 12 years of clinical success; Nemaura’s BEATdiabetes program replicates the same principles and ideas in a virtual platform shown to result in durable weight loss without loss of muscle mass.

Changing the Benchmark

The benchmark for diabetes management for years has been HbA1C, a measure of the amount of blood sugar attached to hemoglobin, which is in red blood cells and carries oxygen from lungs throughout the body. Unfortunately, non-CGM collected HbA1C levels are only averages that can produce the same result while varying significantly during any given period. It can be compared to a math equation, with infinite ways to arrive at “7” (i.e., 5+2, 9-2, 11-4, 1+6, etc.).

One key benefit offered by Nemaura’s CGM-based system is the ability to track the actual time that glucose levels are in a normal range, called time in range (“TIR”). For HbA1C, this can be defined as anywhere between 3.9 and 10.0 millimoles per liter (mmol/l). Providing a way to record when and how much blood sugar is outside that target range can be significant in disease management. That information can provide understanding and the ability to control TIR, which can lead to a reduction in diabetes complications.

Capturing Attention, POs

With its innovative and power technology in place, Nemaura expects to offer meaningful improvements in HbA1C, blood cholesterol, blood pressure and sustainable weight loss — and at an affordable price. Studies show that each case of diabetes costs employers and insurers more than $9,000 on average every year; that number is significantly greater than the $1,200 cost reported for nondiabetic individuals.

The innovative tech and cost-saving numbers appear to be capturing the attention of those in the industry looking for solutions. A soft launch of NMRD’s BEAT diabetes platform in the United Kingdom resulted in purchase orders for 200,000 sensors along with rolling POs forecast for 2 million sensors in the next two years. The platform has just been launched in the United States as a wellbeing device called proBEAT, with a PMA filed with the FDA as well. In addition, the company is reportedly in negotiations with several third parties regarding its sugarBEAT and BEAT platforms.

A Market Demanding Consideration

While diabetes and obesity may not top the list of most exciting investment opportunities, the size of the market, totaling some 1.5 billion people currently and rising, certainly demands consideration. Although the diseases have been traditionally difficult to treat, technology is fueling a new optimism that change is in the air.

WW International Inc. (NASDAQ: WW), a human-centric technology company powered by the world’s leading commercial weight-management program, has teamed up with Zoom Video Communications Inc. for the launch of WW’s Wellness That Works(TM), a new app for Zoom that delivers an embedded experience, seamlessly integrated within Zoom meetings. This new in-product app is now available in the Zoom App Marketplace. WW’s Wellness that Works app for Zoom encourages users to adopt healthy habits from their virtual meetings — behind the screen and beyond — no matter where they are.

Teladoc Health Inc. (NYSE: TDOC), the first and only comprehensive virtual care system, has partnered with DexCom Inc. (NASDAQ: DXCM), the leader in real-time continuous glucose monitoring (“CGM”), to offer joint Livongo for Diabetes and Dexcom members CGM-powered insights, a new set of features and reports that help members more easily visualize their health information and understand how lifestyle decisions affect their blood glucose levels. By combining Dexcom CGM data with additional signals from Teladoc Health, including activity data and food intake, CGM-powered insights offer members a complete health profile and recommendations that support ongoing diabetes management.

In addition, DexCom has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) for the Dexcom Partner Web APIs, enabling invited third-party developers to integrate real-time CGM data into their digital health apps and devices. “FDA clearance of our real-time APIs further solidifies Dexcom as the leader in interoperable CGM, giving Dexcom users even more choice in how they view and interact with their glucose data,” said Dexcom chief technology officer Jake Leach. “The new APIs will help seamlessly integrate the power of real-time Dexcom CGM data into some of the leading diabetes and digital health solutions.” Several prominent diabetes and digital health companies have been invited to access the real-time APIs and are already in the testing and development phase.

DarioHealth Corp. (NASDAQ: DRIO), a pioneer in the global digital therapeutics market, announced a new study at last month’s American Association of Diabetes Care and Education Specialists annual conference demonstrating the impact of Dario’s intelligent personalization platform. Dario’s latest presentation examined the impact of personalized clinical interventions delivered in real-time through the company’s digital therapeutics platform. “Digital therapeutics can play a key role in driving meaningful behavior change when the member experience is truly tailored to follow each person’s unique journey. This research is another example of how Dario is able to adapt and respond to our members using a combination of real-time data and clinically guided, highly personalized interventions to drive healthier behaviors and deliver better results,” said DarioHealth chief medical officer Omar Manejwala, MD.

Healthcare is at a crossroads, with a deep market demand for both innovation and economic awareness. Companies that can meet that demand and bring new solutions to the space are certain to command attention.

$EXN Electric Vehicle Demand to Boost Silver’s Price, Market

Guardian Vaults business development manager John Feeney revealed in a report published last week that despite silver struggling to perform at the moment, the metal should attract new investors in the near future as it became clear that the Fed wouldn’t tighten monetary policies given the lower-than-expected employment figures released in August.

Currently, the metal is going for about $24 per ounce. Normalizing interest rates or shifting monetary policy would have negative consequences on the economy, which is why the Federal Reserve will not be taking any action on this.

International monetary policies support precious metals, which include silver, whose industrial demand is steadily growing day by day. PV solar power has been a key pillar in the demand for the grey metal, with Feeney noting that the electric car market represents an important growth sector for silver.

In the report, the business development manager stated that silver should be seen as a metal for the future as its industrial applications grow with increase in the use of electric vehicles and greater renewable energy adoption. Feeney explained that the grey metal’s monetary history was evident even today, with investors flocking to the metal as a safe haven during unpredictable times, which greatly benefited the metal’s price. He noted that despite this, the main driver for silver’s future demand was in the new growth sector of electric cars and its different industrial applications.

He added that the metal’s use in electric vehicles was projected to increase to more than 89 million ounces by the year 2025 based on data from the World Silver Institute. Its demand is also expected to increase by more than 100,000 ounces by the year 2030. This, Feeney noted, was a huge deal, given that the metal’s supply outlook remained stable, which meant that a decent deficit in the silver market would be observed in the near future as electric car adoption became widespread.

Feeney advised investors to focus on the grey metal’s long-term bullish fundamentals, instead of its short-term volatility. He explained that sharp drops in the price of the metal should be viewed as opportunities, as the price itself didn’t signal a change in the metal’s long-term fundamentals. He also noted that silver was a unique metal that wouldn’t be easy to replace by an alternative, as electrical efficiency was the main objective, adding that investors should be confident in the long-term tailwinds that would benefit the metal’s market as they were probably much stronger than those for gold.

As the demand for silver picks up as a result of its use in the electric vehicle industry, mining companies such as Excellon Resources Inc. (TSX: EXN) (NYSE American: EXN) (FSE: E4X2) are likely to deliver greater shareholder value.

$WTER Hemp Industry Experts Say Regulations Would Boost Sector

For nearly a century, hemp has been at the mercy of prohibitionist policies that outlawed the cultivation and sale of industrial hemp in America. But after the 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp and allowed states that were interested to create hemp programs, a robust industry quickly grew around the plant. By the end of 2020, the U.S. hemp industry had generated nearly $10 billion in sales, partly due to the rising popularity of cannabidiol (“CBD”), a hemp extract said to have potent medical properties.

However, the industry is barely regulated by the federal government. Each state has its own rules, leading to a patchwork of hemp regulations across the country, and the relevant authorities still haven’t created a comprehensive regulatory structure for hemp. Stakeholders and lawmakers have urged the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) to craft hemp regulations, but the federal agency has been dragging its feet. In the wake of the FDA’s rejection of a proposal to allow the sale of full-spectrum CBD as a dietary supplement, industry leaders say hemp would benefit a great deal from regulation.

Priyanka Sharma, cofounder of Kazmira, a Denver-based, industrial-scale producer of CBD isolate, says that regulation would raise the bar for high-quality production and manufacturing processes and ensure customers get products with safe ingredients. FDA approval would also provide sellers with the most-effective product format, Sharma says, allowing for much-needed toxicology and safety studies on hemp extracts such as CBD. According to Jeniffer Knaack, the senior director of compliance and science at Koi CBD in California, hemp products deserve just as much legitimacy as other botanical supplements. Federal prohibitionist policies against cannabis and hemp have created significant barriers to research, commerce, and investment, she says.

Federal regulation with a focus on science and research into hemp extracts would ensure the U.S. hemp industry is grounded in science and put the safety of the consumers first, says Knaack. Mark Montgomery, the cofounder and CEO of Tennessee-based NuSachi Holdings concurs, stating that the only reason there are bad actors in the CBD space is that hemp does not have any standards of operation or product quality. High production standards require investment in talented staff and suitable technology, and companies that hold themselves to high standards will be at a disadvantage compared to the bad actors that would rather make a quick buck at the expense of customers’ health.

Emily Leongini, a regulatory attorney with the FDA and a partner at Los-Angeles based Arent Fox, says the myriad of different hemp rules in different states provides a significant challenge for companies that want to expand. Not only is modifying products to meet contrasting standards in different states not commercially viable, but it also exposes them to consumer class litigation risks. Leading CBD industry actors such as The Alkaline Water Company Inc. (NASDAQ: WTER) (CSE: WTER) would prefer operating conditions in which such unnecessary risks are avoided, so federal regulations would be a welcome development.
