    It would certainly be nice if any meter worked with any pump. I hope this is what industry standards would accomplish. Don’t really care too much about FDA approval problems. I’d rather the FDA think carefully (slowly) about what’s safe than let a rush to market breed unsafe devices. The FDA needs high standards, too.

    Thanks for the good news Amy.

    Here’s another benefit. You develop a diabetes data bus. In theory anyone can connect to this and collect data for analysis. This opens up the market to independently created diabetes analysis software that could be game changing. It’s way, way overdue.

    At the meeting in Boston, they discussed standards for glucometers. The current standard for approval is to have 95% of the numbers withing 20% of a reference lab. Most of the commercial meters are better than that. The ADA wants much stricter standards and with stricter standards the price of doing a blood sugar can increase. They have had a number of meetings and it is still being discussed. Part of the discussion involves having different standards when the blood sugar is higher, middle range and lower.
