Re: [IPk] Continuous Glucose Monitoring



Hi Terry

My immediate excitement was the day you posted your first message and I 
wrote immediately.  .  Unfortunately it has taken all this time for my 
message to appear.  I have been reading your subsequent reports and can see 
the difficulties.  There is obviously a lot more work to be done on this. 
It's a shame as when you first wrote I was thinking about buying one.  I 
have now read that there are other makes beginning to be talked about. 
Please keep us informed about your tests.  Your fingers must be so sore.  I 
feel for you.

June
