Those of you that are signed up for a trial or have participated in a trial, please offer a lead on how I can do the same.

So has anyone done an AP trial? What was it like?

Comment by S Woodward on May 15, 2014 at 5:33pm
Will they have to redo all studies if the AP is ready to using ultra-rapid insulin. I would not use it w/o it running ultra-rapid. Of course it may require a new algorithm, or would it. If so would it have to be released using outdated insulin?

Not sure how to get in a chat room, have never done it. but I am in St. Louis will get it at 8 pm I have no experience with the artificial pancreas but am very interested. I have a group of Type 1 diabetic women who meet monthly who are quite interested and would be great candidates

Zierra, it's going to be in our TuDiabetes chat room on the Home page - it's available 24/7, but we're going to try to keep the focus there on the AP for that hour tonight.

How do I log in or attend?

Comment by Lianna on May 14, 2014 at 12:19pm

I am hoping to be enrolled after the summer for the AP. Love to hear from others that have already done a trial. I will be 15 min. late, but I will be there for the chat!

I've signed up. How does this work? I don't have the fastest internet connection. Hope that's not a problem.
