"OK, I will check out the usb sniffing. I think the omnipod controller actually mounts as a device on the Windows XP machine with an intermediate binary file object that then gets fetched by the software. I can deposit that for you. I don't have…"

"The reason it's secret is primarily because these companies don't want other companies to sell new products or services built on integrating with these devices without getting an opportunity to get revenue from licensing, at least. Patient…"

"Oh, the Dexcom and Omnipod and Medtronic devices are all unique. Re-using anything between them is like sharing data between an Android phone and a Windows phone and an Apple phone; they all have unique ideas about who and what you are and how they…"

"I'd like to adapt whichever of you python scripts is used to communicate directly with the device, and I can try to adapt it for the Dexcom and Omnipod (if I understand correctly what you are doing exactly). Maybe you can describe the exact…"

"Hi Mark! The decoding-carelink scripts only work with the minimed carelink protocol, not the Dexcom or the Omnipod. I have access to an omnipod, but have not acquired the time to attempt implementing it yet. I do not have access to a Dexcom. See:…"

Here's the thing. Many times, every day, I, an unqualified lay-person with extremely limited information, have to make life-or-death calculations that my body should be making automatically. I have to figure out the right ratios - of food, exercise (type, intensity and length), insulin bolus (dosage and timing), basal rates and stress levels - that will maintain my glucose level within a range that will keep me out of the emergency room.

Craig-
I sent you a friend request. I'm in Stamford too and see that you are looking for a new endo. Are you looking for one in Stamford? I can recommend a great practice.

Erin
