    Thanks again Amy for a great summary of what’s going on at ADA. The design on the new Dexcom looks nice, I just wish they’d kept the value to the right of the graph. That layout means they’ve lost vertical space so reading older BG values is harder because the graph’s compressed. It’s a pity that the vertical scale can’t be reduced, I imagine that the FDA wouldn’t allow it. The colors should help. I look forward to learning more about it.

    I tried the IBG Star meter. Did not like it at all. First off, not easy to use.
    Second, strips not covered by insurance.
    Third, for me personally it keep reading my blood sugar incorrectly.

    I’m a big fan of new technology, but this device is not all that.

    IBGSTAR meter reads between 17 and 20mg/dl
    higher than my Freestyle flash. If doesn’t work if your phone has an iPhone Bumper. I always get code 7 and “This Accessory is not Supported by iPhone” errors. You also have to start the IGBSTAR application before plugging it into your phone or it will not download the data. Too many bugs that needs to be worked out. I returned mine.

    My favorite bit of all that you wrote is that Insulet is apparently admitting they were wrong about how to IOB (hinting that Minimed was right) and will change their system to reflect that. Now the Omnipod will be a perfect piece of machinery for me.

    I always look forward to this round up after you attend the ADA!!! Thank you, once again, for such a great recap!

    The IOB issue with the pod was a dealbreaker for us a few years ago. I’m happy to see that Insulet has listened to consumer feedback and implemented changes as far as IOB is concerned.

    I have heard rumours that the Dex Gen4 sensor has only a 6 month life once started… Can you find out if that is true?

    I’m not surprised about the issues between Regence Health and Medtronic. Medtronic is a rip-off IMO and I will never go back to them no matter how ‘great’ their products are. The JDRF supports them and now that they won the lottery (17million) the $250k per year ‘donations’ to the JDRF finally paid off.

    It’s interesting to hear about the AP and to see the picture you posted and so my question is; How does this improve quality of life with T1? I also find the point about the CGSM and it NOT being a cure for hypoglycemia but the literature seems to imply it is. Just like they seem to imply the AP will ‘cure’ you of managing diabetes.

    Dexcom just announced they got CE Mark Approval for the G4, so they can start to market it in Europe and other places. I don’t expect we’ll see it in the US anytime soon.

    What happened to the nano pump from Debiotech? Any news? The first prototype was in 2008, since 2010 no news…

    Thanks for all the great info. on these products. I was just curious if you saw the transdermal insulin patch (u-strip) from Transdermal Specialties? I believe it works with a pump. I would love to know what you thought of it or if you spoke to them. Thanks again!!!

    Thanks for the updates! Great stuff! Any updates on the availability of the Animas Vibe (Animas/Dexcom hybrid) in the US? It’s been available in Europe for some time and it can’t be here soon enough for me!!
