RE: [IP] The new Paradigm Pump w/ continuous glucose monitoring

Alderson Wrote:
So telling a device that your glucose level is really 52 when it  
thinks you are 104 because of a rapid drop in ones glucose level  
would confuse it because it will be using your input to adjust how it  
interprets the levels it is measuring in the fluid under your skin,  
and that fluid may not have had any significant changes yet due to  
the rapid drop. While on the other hand inputting a blood sugar that  
has been relatively stable for a longer period of time like a morning  
value or before meals will let the device do its subtle adjustments  
with more stable data i.e. The interstitial fluids will have had the  
needed time to reflect what the rest of ones body is really  
experiencing as far as glucose is concerned.

I follow your line of thinking, but does this mean that the Paradigm  
CGMS is unusable in cases of rapidly changing BG, even after  

What happens after exercise or a high glycemic meal? If the CGMS  
never calibrates under conditions of rapidly changing BG, how can it  
detect it after calibration?
