Re: [IP] closed loop system!



I don't claim to be completely knowledgeable about this, but I believe the
difference is that you now deliver your insulin subcutaneously causing it to
be slower acting as it has to be absorbed by the body.  With a closed-loop
system, the insulin would be delivered intravenously (as it is with a normal
pancreas) and therefore has an almost immediate effect.  So I would suppose
that one would be able to start exercising with a normal bg because there
shouldn't still be previous insulin on board.  I'm sure that someone will
correct any errors I've made.
