Kevin replied to Gail's discussion 'Bionic pancreas ....' in the group Dexcom Users
"In my opinion, the weakest link is the CGM. While most of the time the accuracy is pretty good, there are situations where the accuracy is way off (half to 2x the value from a blood glucose meter). Not sure what your experience but I centainly…"

Jeff replied to Kevin's discussion 'Animas Ping and airport security' in the group Animas Insulin Pump Users
"If you read the blurbs you find that we are not supposed to take the pump through either the metal detector (magnetic Fields) or the newer x-ray systems. When I had the minimed I ignored this and went through the metal detector and never had a…"

"Can someone tell me what machines my ping is safe to go through? Every time I take it off the airport security act like it's ok to walk through the gate detector but I am afraid to. I know it can't be exposed to x-rays but what about that…"

We started a new Pennsylvania specific group (

And- I was thinking that eventually we should have a philly meet up for all us at TuD.
Maybe Bowling for Blood Sugars? Get together, socialize, test, and try to see who can most closely match blood sugar value with bowling score. Winner gets... something to be determined.

Happy Wednesday, guys- I hope your sugars behave today.

Hey Kevin! How are you? Are you doing The Walk for the Cure in Phila. on Oct. 25th? Would be nice to get a group together!

What about the actual sensor. Like on your abdomen or leg?? Any problems with it sticking to you?

Hi kevin, thanks for adding me. I was wondering where you have found is the best place to put your dexcom sensor? Especially while riding.

Yeah I spoke to Animas today and it's just something I guess I'll ahve to get used to. I don't care too much for the single reports. I like them to be together to see bolus and basal and numbers all in one wash. Guess I'll have to logg afterall.

Hi Kevin... question for you. I started on the Ping today on my own. Can you not recall BGs off your pump? Only off the meter and do you have to download them both? Also if you do not want to put the food data base on the pump can you still use it off the meter? I have to sit down with the books more but my eyesight isn't good. :o( That is why you should wait on formal training huh. ha ha ha Been pumping over 15yrs now though so I just thought I'd hook up anyway. Thanks Sandy

Hi Kevin. I actually don't live in columbia, but when I signed up, it required my zip code. I do live about 60 miles from there, but I figured no one would have ever heard of my little town.
Great a1c!!

Ah, ok. I'm also working in pharma in RTP (although I do biostatistics and at a different company). And yeah, the weather here is not so bad. It may snow tonight, but was in the 60's yesterday and should be in the 60's again by this weekend. :)
