    Gil, what a wonderful invention! I’ve had type 1 Diabetes, since I was 15 and I’m now 41 with some minor complications. Living with diabetes has been very difficult for me, it is something you live with daily. However, after reading your article, wow what an amazing concept. If you need a clinical trial PT, please count on me, I’d love to participate!!!

    So, many people suffer from this illness and the complications are deadly. Good luck and I know you’ll make it…….

    I’ve been a type 1 diabetic since I was 14, I’m 66 now & using a Minimed pump which seems to have gone dormant w/regard to improvements. It’s unlikely, but I hope I’m still around when you bring this to market – it addresses the things I find as problems to my Paradigm pump. Nice thinking…

    Hi Meg, Joanna, Bob,

    Thank you for the kind words. We’re in middle of a v. c. funding process, while continuing our engineering efforts in a very tight budget.
    I don’t know when it will be in the market. All I know is that once properly funded, we will file with the FDA/CE/etc in less than 3 years.
    After that, well, the ball is going to be on the feds’ side of the court. Let’s wait and see what they’ll do with it.
    Regards,
    Gil

    Gil, I would JUMP at the chance to be part of your test group! I’m 39 years young, and have had T1D for 35 years–dx’d a few days shy of my 4th birthday. I started using the OmniPod system in May 2011, and while it’s been a total lifesaver, and I absolutely LOVE IT, the concept and components of your Pancreum closed-loop system is something I’ve been dreaming of–and hoping for–for a LONG time. In all seriousness, I would love to be part of your Pancreum project. How *CAN* I help out, become part of a test group, etc.? I look forward to your response. –Sarah J. marks

    I hope your product development is progressing well. I have been living with T1 Diabetes for 38 years. I started using Omnipod 3 years ago and recently needed to add Dexcom’s CGM to my therapy due to unawareness during extreme lows. I dream of a device that will adjust automatically when my blood sugars go too high or too low. I would love to help in your research. Please keep me informed when you are ready to test your product!
    Keep up the great work!

    It’s always great to read about new products for the diabetic industry. I have been Type I for 35 years (I am 43) and my daughter for 6 years (she is now 11). I have suffered many complications- multiple heart attacks, strokes, 10 stents, major depression and so much more. This sure sounds as something that would control sugars and an A1C of 5.5. If you need human subjects contact me. As everyone says “when”? Thanks!! Robert

    Hi Robert, Cheryl and Robert G.,
    Thanks for the comments. We are still working on while searching for funding from venture capital firms. It’s hard to say “when” because of that financial limitation, but we are not giving up yet.
    Cheers,
    Gil

    I’ve been watching your website and have noticed some changes. But still hoping for the product to go on the market. I have T1 diabetes for 41 of my 43 years. Got started on the Dexcom some one and a half years ago. Its helping but not to the degree that your device could. If you are looking for more test subjects for your device please add me to the list. Hoping that you’ll have something in 2014… Thanks, Rob

    I was researching CGM devices and ran across your website. This is so exciting and would be GREAT to have very soon!!! My husband has been a diabetic for 20 years and my son for 11 years, both of them are currently wearing Omnipods. They both love them but we do still struggle with my son’s sugar levels, part of it is his age (13). Please keep us posted on your progress as this is some exciting news and if you need people to try your product out we will be waiting in line.
