A Great Thing!

Could the day come when I can leave Vince alone overnight or for a long period of time without too much worry? Honestly, it depends on a lot of factors, however, it seems we are getting one step closer to this becoming a reality. This new device that is in the early stages of being created would bring glucose sensors to a new level. First of all, it is not inserted under the skin. It sits on top of the skin on the abdomen. There is also no calibrations with finger sticks and no warm up time. This allows the user to wear it as often or as infrequent as they want. Best of all, they say that it transmits to your smart phone with the data. Once an alarm sounds, if the user does not attend to it, you can have the device set up to automatically call a phone number you program. The person would be called and alerted that the user is not responding to the alarms on the device. This would inform the person on the other end that the user could potentially be in trouble. This is yet another potential godsend just as the Minimed Revel pump and sensor has been for Vince and I. I hope this becomes available soon!
