[IP] Minimed's new continuous glucose sensor



Hey everybody!!

This is really exciting.  Yesterday (the 17th) Minimed submitted for FDA
approval, its new, continuous, subcutaneous blood glucose sensor.  This would
work with a cannula (just like the pump) and check glucose every 10 seconds
and give 5 minute averages.  It would have an alarm to warn the user of low
blood sugar!!!

The initial use of this product is intended for physician diagnostic purposes
but they are to follow soon with a general consumer model.  

My husband ran across the info on www.nasdaq.com and I just now checked
minimed's website and the same article is there.

Check it out!!   www.minimed.com
                  Then go to "what's new"

I'm so excited I can hardly stand it!
