RE: [IP] re: CGMS for consumers

Before reading these threads, about a week ago I was thinking about test
strips and their cost. Its ridiculous. Not only that, but you have to stop
What you doing to check yourself. In this day and age so to speak we should
Have something better. Would be nice to have something more permanent,
Even a hand held device like those mentioned before. I'm aware that many
that have had this problem for a long time see test strips as a blessing
And a real convenience. But I think the medical community can do better
And look forward to the day when testing is a passive thing.

Sorry to rant, but this problem is not going away, might as well make
It as convenient as possible.

Thanks for listening,,,,
