Re: [IPu] " Costs pose hurdle for diabetes monitoring devices"



Hi Liz,
Yes I agree ... Inhaled Insulin seems like "a fad" to me.
It won't give a basal type insulin and is unable to account for Dawn 
phenomena ....  Then there is my sore throat / bug etc at the moment ... So 
that would be 2 days "resetting" injected insulin rates until I was well 
again ?
Mmmm, I don;t think so ....

Some in the US are getting many more days than "recommended" on their Dexcom 
or CGMS systems.

There is a huge amount of discussion on the international board about paying 
/ non paying insurance companies for this technology ....  Will list more 
when my 2 current email systems are amalgamated !

Warm Regards,
Janette
