Re: [IP] mm glucose sensor

Hey Guys,

I just received my minimed 507 introduction video in the mail (I'm using
the 506, now) and I was wondering about this "implantable insulin pump"
that is being used overseas.  I wonder, does anyone know if it is used
along with this glucose sensor?  Is it for doctors only, or are they
passing this thing out on the street?
