Joe White replied to Jeff Dempsey's discussion 'Animas Ping Release date guesses for USA' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"My guess is the 1st or 2nd quarter of 2013. I would hope that they held informal talks with the FDA, saying the pump is like the 2020 or one touch ping without the remote control. We will be using the Dexcom G4 cgm, which you need to approve before…"

Jeff Dempsey replied to Mary's discussion 'Transmitter replacement cost' in the group Dexcom Users
"You mean these technologies that we have been clamoring for, and Dexcom had to: 1. Invent it at risk to the company and investors 2. Get it through the testing process, so no one would be harmed by the technology, and it did what they intended it to…"

Jeff Dempsey replied to Jake's discussion 'Mac downloads and why you dont see it for Diabetes devices' in the group Dexcom Users
"Jake, I understand the FDA approval process, heck, I have to deal with the FAA at work, and they rightfully want an proven, solid answer for the general population, but since this is for statistical analysis, so I'm not to worried about getting…"

"The Vibe will get released in the US a couple of weeks before Dexcom releases the next generation CGM."

"OK, I checked... 10-15% of machines are Macs."

Jeff Dempsey replied to Jake's discussion 'Mac downloads and why you dont see it for Diabetes devices' in the group Dexcom Users
"Jake, As a Mac convert (and loving it), I cannot agree more with you. When 5-10% of machines out there are Macs, and there are alternatives to using Windows on it, it becomes a business decision for the creators of the software. On the testing…"

Jeff Dempsey replied to Laddie's discussion 'Started my Ping today' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Yeah... I'm using EZ Manager+ in a virtual machine on a Mac. I'm not sure why, but the pump manufacturers think that we live in 2002, and Windows XP is the latest and greatest out there."

Laddie replied to Jeff Dempsey's discussion 'Animas Ping Release date guesses for USA' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"I find it easier to believe that Type 1 diabetes is an extremely difficult disease to cure and that no one is hiding that cure in a dark closet. I truly do not believe that there are conspiracies out there to delay technology in order to sell test…"

Jeff Dempsey replied to Biedronk's discussion 'How to get "service dog" status for self trained DAD?' in the group Diabetes Alert Dogs
"I suggest the ActiveDogs vest. Cooper has the one with the under-vest and saddle bags that hold the glucose tablets and a meter (be sure to keep the meter in the case, as the vest gets a lot of use/abuse). I also asked them to sew velcro on, so I…"

E-J Ohler replied to Jeff Dempsey's discussion 'Animas Ping Release date guesses for USA' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"You are correct, but a diligent pumper or MDS'er without CGM will a minimum test 12/day to 15-17/day to keep basal and bolus as tight as possible. With a CGM you are requested 3 to 4/day and I probably do 5-6/day to keep the CGM honest as every…"

Jay replied to Jeff Dempsey's discussion 'Animas Ping Release date guesses for USA' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"Zoe, you are 110% correct! All of the CGM material I have seen says NEVER base insulin doses on a CGM. The CGM materials explain in detail the reason for this. So, it has nothing to do with selling test strips. I still use about 10 per day. Also, I…"

Jeff Dempsey replied to Jeff Dempsey's discussion 'Animas Ping Release date guesses for USA' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"I like my Dexcom 7 for testing out basal performance. If I test at the beginning (like, before I go to bed) and when I wake up, and the numbers are close, I interpolate for the fasting basal (assuming I didn't eat for the last 3 hours before…"

Laddie replied to Jeff Dempsey's discussion 'Animas Ping Release date guesses for USA' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"NorCal's nurse consultant is much more pessimistic than my Animas rep who is smart enough not to suggest a date. I was told that the target for filing with the FDA is January 2013. They obviously needed to wait for the Dexcom G4 approval before…"

Zoe replied to Jeff Dempsey's discussion 'Animas Ping Release date guesses for USA' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"I don't think CGM's are meant to replace regular testing (or test strips)."
