I think the Omnipod folks are working on one that has a truly integrated CGMS in the pod, but it is still in development. I use a Minimed Paradigm which will work with their CGMS, but it is a separate sensor/transmitter that communicates wirelessly to the pump. I don't have one, but am investigating getting one. My insurance company doesn't cover those, so it'll be an appeal process to get one.

Sorry, I had to stop in the middle of my comment and go to a it didn't make whole point was that during my distraught evening...I was frantically searching the internet for information and was frequently linked back to this seemed to be a very active/robust community....and I was able to get a lot of good personal feedback on devices.....and really was relieved to read what others had to say.

Well....I had a very upsetting discovery Wednesday night when I received my OmniPod pump in the mail...only to discover that it did not offer continuous glucose monitoring. I specifically asked that question to my endo who assured me that it offered that functionality. I about had a heart attack when I opened the control device and noticed that "integrated glucose monitoring" for them meant that you stick the test strip in the control device. My heart sank....I'm returning it.

hehe. yea, the ADA locally here doesn't seem to have much of a presence. I didn't even know that Nov 14 was diabetes day, since there was no local press about it or special activities. The only thing I heard about was that November was National Diabetes Month, and the focus of it was pretty much all T2.

Alot of the activity here revolves around activity in the Forums and individual blog entries. You can search the Forums easily and if you have a question, I'll bet someone has already asked it and started a good discussion on it. If not, ask the question yourself and someone will be able to answer it or direct you to the answer. I've been diabetic for nearly 40 years and think I have learned more here in the last 4 months. It's amazing.

Anyway, have a good one!

Hi Kristin, I see you're from my neck of the woods. There are some other folks from the general KC area around. Check out the Groups KCK Diabetics and Midwest Diabetics. There really isn't a lot of group activity, but you can see a list of folks who have joined and you can always feel free to start up some trouble yourself.

There's a lot of great people and info on here, so welcome!
