Does anyone know when The Combo pump will be sold in the US market. Is it Roche or FDA who seems to dragging their feet?

I do have one question for Rob however, whats up with the Roche/Dexcom co-marketing/alliance. Know about the future integration with Dex but was also hinted that Roche is selling/marketing the standalone Dex sensor and device as well... including possible offers for the sensors (out of pocket of course)Have not seen or heard anything about this or any promotional material

Hi Marie (and all :-))
Jake did a great job on updating! The only thing I have to add is that I will proactively update the group on this and other news as I'm able to discuss it.

Have a good day!

Well iv actually purchased an A-C Nano in CVS *AND* Glookoinc and Accuchek have released an IR adaptor for the Glookosync cable that allows you do download and send a pdf report on an IDevice (Ipod/Ipad).. and download your numbers.. INCLUDING the Nano (Yaaay)
Still a delay on some of the charting due to FDA (boo)

Rob, can you update us on what's new?

Comment by Rob Muller, Roche Diabetes Care on April 24, 2012 at 6:47am

Hi Mike,

I hear you, and I'm sorry about that.

I checked with Customer Care and apparently they were having some database access issues recently, which meant they had to ask more questions than usual.

I'm still looking into that particular question about the insulin. I'll let you know when I hear back.

In the meantime, have a good day. We'll try to do better next time. :-)

Kind regards,

Overall I am very happy with the Customer Care folks @ Roche. They normally seem to "get it" when I call every 18 months or so, or when I call to re-order supplies and can't remember my customer ID number, but.....

I called the other day because I was low and couldn't figure out how to work the multiclix device. I don't normally use the multiclix, but I was using my back-up meter and it has the multiclix in the case.

While I am trying to work my way through the phone menu system, I finally get a rep who puts me through a battery of questions. I stop her when she asks for the S/N of the meter.

In thinking about this interaction days later, I realize the thing that irked me MOST about the call was this question:

Are you still taking insulin?


Why is this a question?

End of rant - thanks
