Why is no medical establishment or any pump company doing a sanity check on the data they are getting?No doctor even questions if someone is CORRECTLY calibrating a sensor, if they are using the current blood sugar reading to calculate a meal bolus, etc....I do NOT believe the pump/sensor/meter combo is anywhere near "good enough" to make a decision about someone's care, I am ONLY suggesting that something which would upload all available data, do a "sanity check" on it (look at the papers from…See More

Thank you for the friend request Yerachmiel. Let me tell you something about me. My name is Gary and I am a mid-fifties Type 2. For years I neglected my diabetes until finally I was unable to ignore it any more.
These days I have my diabetes controlled, well, at least if it’s actually possible to control diabetes. I keep my weight in check with diet and exercise and I am totally insulin dependent. I use an insulin pump, a Medtronic Revel 723 to be precise.
I am a father to two grown men and a grandfather to two boys ages 3 and 6. I have been married for over thirty years to my beautiful wife.
They say you are known by the friends you keep, I feel pretty good about my friends here at TuDiabetes.
Gary
