Re: [IP] closed loop



Sorry to post the entire message, but I think it is relevant.  I think that,
because the glucose release is an autonomic function, most people would not
have any problems with lows.  However, from what I understand, long term
diabetes causes an impairment of that particular function.  These people may
have problems with it.  Just my opinion.
