My miracle device It would be normal for a diabetic, or parent of a diabetic to want the invention of a new device for the treatment of diabetes. They would want a constant glucose monitor that would seamlessly communicate with an insulin pump in real time. They would want that CGM to be accurate to within +\- 5 points (I'm reasonable, right). This glorious unit would be the size of a small bandaid, so that it would not cause undo attention. The sensors involved would only need to be replaced every six months, but would not be susceptible to infection. That is what most people would want. Me? I want a new microscopic transmitter that looks like Donald Trump and is directly injected into the pancreas. Its only function would be to tell the pancreas to do its job or it will be fired. That what I want!

Wouldn't be great if you could invent such a device?? Keep on dreaming and thinking. You may be the one who sets this idea into motion.

Got to agree with you there:) How about a small device that reads the bg numbers and zaps the pancreas when it isn't working right so that meds arn't needed? For me that would be awsome:D

kind of like a pacemaker for the pancreas?

So right. I'm all for simple solution. You know, something that gets the job done and needs no work on my part. After so many years of doing this, I want to let go and have it done for me, no more insulin:) I know, wishful thinking.

I love my CGM sensor. I should have gotten years ago. I have recently received mine. My A1C went from 8.7 to 7.1. I would recommend it to anyone having trouble getting their sugars under control. It shows where you would need more insulin and where you would need less. LOVE IT!!!!!
