Jim Devlin replied to Dan P's discussion 'New T1 therapy with no shots, no testing, no carb counting goes to phase 1 trials'
"Holger, I was diagnosed with T1 diabetes in 1952. Since then I must have been told at least twice per year that diabetes will be cured within five years. If there even was a cure it would be 10 years before the FDA approved it. The Feds still…"

Jim ...you would use the same insulin that use now as in the pump.

Once your settings are set in the pump you do not have to think much after that.

Your pump can be a as basic as giving yourself a shot or you can design it to be as personal as you are.

I have been a diabetic for 36 yrs and started the pump 4 yrs ago. I never thought much about taking shots and only after 30 yrs did I start to concider it. It was much to concider as changing this old dog new tricks is not easy.
I use to wake up low or high every morning and I was just so tired of waking up tired! All worth it.

Hi Jim! I was just about to send you the same link that Karen sent below. You can find lots of useful info there, including a JDRF study showing the usefulness of CGMS. Hope that it works out!!!

Diabetes Health online magazine published this sample letter you can use for CGM coverage. Perhaps something in the article will be of use to you!

I am not familiar with any studies, but I bet Gina Capone is. She's the person who led the charge on this year's CGMS anti-denial campaign. I believe I sent you the websites pertaining to her cause. I know they list some studies there. I just don't follow technical research news like that. You can also find her page on TuDiabetes by searching on our Members page. Sorry I can't be of more help on that point.

I apologize for not getting you to where you could find the Great Lakes Group. As of a moment ago it has 188 members. To find it, go to the home page. Scroll to the bottom. There aare several groups displayed but just a minute ago the Great Lakes Group was displayed. Click on it and find the "Join this group" link.

I use omnipoad and was told by the company that medicarewill not approve it asan insulin pump for some unknown reason. It is wireless, but does everything a pump does. have you had any experience with this or other irrational decisions made by medicare?
