Medical Equipment Hacks

Has anyone seen the recent news concerning the ability of testers to hack into Medical Implant Devices (including Insulin Pumps). Apparently they wer able to "reprogram" a pump device from as far away as 300ft, instructing the pump to deliver its entire Insulin content in one go, this without ever having to ID themselves, or the pump device. This sounds pretty scarey to me.http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-17623948See More

What Happened???

I have been "Pumping" now for about 3 months and with the continued help of my NP have been able to get my levels down to a reasonable number for some considerabel time now. Initially my levels were all over the place, highs, lows, loads of alarms and the whole process was time consuming and worrysome. But the pump regime has taught me to control my sugars much better, I "count carbs", in fact I am trying desparately to reduce carbs and the last time I ate bread, pasta, rice, potatoes was…
