Not nearly as experienced as say Jim or Richard... none the less I've got far more than just a little experience diabeteswise. We all do in this group.

 

Given your experiences this far... what do YOU expect, want someone to finally create that should exist but apparently does not yet???

 

You have at least 20 years as a diabetic... what do you need that has not been done so far?

For example how bout a meter that is NOT temperature sensitive?

How bout a tiny carrying case that's insulated enough somehow to prevent the temperature from effecting the meter just long enough for us to use it, when the car is apparently "too cold"?

G2 is a start.

My wants - integrated CGMS and Insulin Pump all with one site. Still scared of the closed loop...not sure how they are going to overcome exercise and other beyond regular activity. Shutting down insulin won't help the fact that it lasts from the initial time given.
a combined closed loop system would be awesome. and if they could "sense" rapid glucose changes like the cgms's do already then maybe they can pull it back before then. or maybe they can use another vial with glucose in it.
There Is a clinical trial at the Mass General Hospital or there was last year. It incorporates both insulin and glucagon. I have not heard any results yet. It would be awesome!!!
Hello 870allamerican:

Thanks for playing...

Not being a chemist, you lost me. (: ( Know what insulin is/does, the same for glucagon. How do the two incorporate with each other beyond (@)#@*#)@ waaaay too much insulin, need glucagon to stop his/her seizure aspect???
Stuart
It would most likely use a cgm to monitor your sugar and base the dosages on that. If too low it may stop giving basal and give glucose and if too high it would adjust dose to bring back to normal range. I have heard they were working on a system like that for a while.
Also they are developing a new insulin that starts to work much quicker then the ones on the market today. They want it to alomost be like insulin a pancrease would produce.
Hello Brock:


Insulin starting to be absorbed/working FASTER than in 15 minutes?!?!!

A METER incapable of "technical error"; too cold, too little blood, too damp, low battery, .
