Mmmm, I don't think I'd like that -- I wouldn't want to be infusing a
dye into my skin. I can just see how strange I'd look with assorted blue
splotches on my belly!

Plus there would be the problem of how would a dye influence the
absorption and action of the insulin. I can see a long, expensive FDA
proceeding here, that Lilly probably wouldn't want to undertake.

How about some kind of sensor in the connector part that alerts you to
air bubbles?
