Re: [IP] two question: Upgrading your pump and the CBGM from Minimed???



I don't know about the Minimed CGMS, but I know that Animas has a real time
CGMS currently in clinical trials in Europe.  The CGMS in implanted much
like a pace maker.  The user wears a "watch" to receive the glucose
readings.  Apparently early results look promising.
