    This bionic pancreas is not a cure. It is exactly what it sounds like. A bionic pancreas. Which is kind of what we have now, but with a couple of weak links. We are one weak link, and our crippled glucagon response is the other (that last one is complicated, and beyond the scope of this post).

    A bionic pancreas is what is achieveable now and what we need.
    It’s a diabetes-mind vacation, a bionic friend you have to control bu you can trust.
    The Boston trial achieved a mean glucose during 5 days of 128, it’s a HbA1C of 6.
    Milions of PWD with HbA1C of 6, can you figure ?!

    So its another redirection of funds meant for a cure into another piece of machinery that simply amounts to a band aid. Not to mention, this AP is not an eat and forget about it miracle. We will still need to maintain a diet and check our blood sugars, maybe not as often, but we need to make sure the CGM is still accurate.
