OK. With the improvement of the Freestyle strips and Dexcom 7 integration, I may go for this set up. I had thought it would be the PING, but I go with those who move ahead.

Hi, I live in UK and started using Dexcom 7 plus on its own along with jabs. Jabs in states maybe seen as a step backwards but i find just have the Dexcom on its own has made a huge difference to quality of life and hba1c which has just come back as lowest in 30 yrs. It is truly an amazing step fwd in diabetes\ management but try without pump and it is even better. I tried pump and it wasnt for me. Chris

Any updates? How far away is this integration?

According to my Dexcom rep, Insulet filed with the FDA on Monday 5/3/2010 for the OmniPod/Dexcom integrated PDM. Can't wait! Maybe a Christmas present?

My daughter is now using the Omni pod and the Dexcom CGM independently, which is working great but I can't wait for them to be integrated so that she'll have one less thing to carry. We find the Dexcom CGM remarkably accurate. My understanding is that it's been submitted to the FDA for a while and they are just awaiting approval. In Dexcom's annual report they say that they are expecting to be integrated (approved) by the end of 2010. I don't know anything about combining the pod with the cgm sensor, I don't think they can, they need to be 3 inches apart but I do know Omni pod is working on making the pod 1/3 smaller. I think this is just awaiting approval too hopefully by the end of 2010.

There will still be two separate insertion sites. The pod's canula still needs to be 3 inches or more away from the CGM sensor and they have different lifetimes. The technology isn't good enough to put them in once device unless it's huge and we go back to sensor insertions (and restarts) each time we change pods. This just isn't worth it. They're working on better technology but right now I wouldn't even want them combined!
