    Whew! That’s a whole lot of info!!
    Thanks –
    The LADA thing was interesting…
    And my favorite conclusion… “Maybe the next round of research here ought to be on how we can make adult diabetes care more like the nurturing world of pediatric care?”

    Thanks for the comprehensive report. I had a chance to play around with the tandem pump a few weeks ago. Looks and feels great! But the software was not approved yet and there’s no meter to link to it. Still, when my current warranty expires . . . maybe . . .

    What about anything wiorthwhile in the field of encapsulation by Diatranz Otsuka Limited (DOL) – formerly LCT Technologies and Nuvilux and Viacyte?

    Where are we with betacell regeneration, transplantation and beta cell supply?

    Oral insulin or any delivery methods NOT Sub-Q?

    The techy stuff is cool but it doesn’t impact the arduous task of managing this insidious illness.

    Thank you for your GREAT report, it is so helpfull when you can’t travel to ADA.

    You all are very lucky, in Latinoamerica we dont have so many options, but when we know that these kind of stuff is already in USA market, we can ask for in labs and companies .

    Amy, thanks so much for your awesome report. Is there a link to the latest news from DAISY regarding infant feeding and risk of type 1? I want to see that and can’t find it…

    I saw the post talking about getting a new pump when the pump’s warranty is out. Check your insurance carefully. I have BC and they denied my request. My pump has been out of warranty for a couple of years now.
