New Insulin Pump Spells More Freedom For Diabetics

Sitting on the bleachers at Peninsula High School, a lacrosse helmet and stick beside him, Scott Phillips glances at fingers scarred from nearly six years of daily blood sugar tests. Phillips was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at 12 years old, and the day-to-day ordeal of managing Type 1 diabetes have been at the back of his mind ever since, he said. Now, he’s one of the first recipients of a new type of insulin pump that doctors say could be a huge step forward for diabetics managing disease. Peace of mind The pump, developed by medical technology company Medtronic, has been dubbed by some an “artificial pancreas” because of its ability to monitor a patient’s blood sugar and automatically adjust the amount of insulin it administers in response to an increase or decrease in glucose levels. The system doesn’t function exactly like a normal pancreas — users still have to monitor their blood sugar regularly and give additional insulin before meals. But for people with Type 1 diabetes, whose pancreases have stopped producing insulin that the body uses to process sugar from foods, it’s an improvement over other available options. “There’s not ever anything I thought, Continue reading >>

    My new endo wants me to consider a Medtronic 630G + CGM. I'm currently on MDI. She is suggesting this one because it turns off the insulin if one goes low. Does anyone have any experience with this? I've not worn a pump before so any words of wisdom/opinions would be appreciated.

    It's a pretty new pump! I have only seen 2 user reviews and 1 hates it and the other loves it. I do recommend an insulin pump as long as one knows how to use it. The pumper needs to be the one that manages all things that happen with it so I would not connect this 630 pump to me. I do not want my pump to make decisions regarding turning off my insulin.

  3. i don't know about this.
    I have a pump and a separate CGM.
    Is this pump/CGM covered by Medicare or a Medicare supplement?
    thanks,

Insulin Pump Hacker Says Vendor Medtronic Is Ignoring Security Risk

Jerome Radcliffe scared a lot of people — including himself, since he is a diabetic — when he showed how easy it was to hack an insulin pump from a distance at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas early this month. At the time, Radcliffe didn’t disclose the names of vendor names or models. He withheld the information to stay within legal boundaries, to protect himself, and to make sure he did not arm criminal hackers with the means to undertake the actual hacks. Today he revealed in a conference call that the company in question was Medtronic and it has not acknowledged that there is a security risk. “I chose not to disclose the details to protect the public safety of diabetics,” he said today in a conference call. But that was before he ran into a brick wall with Medtronic. Now he has worked with the Department of Homeland Security and the Computer Emergency Response Team to contact the vendor of insulin pumps. He said he expected to get honest, public disclosure from the vendor about what it would do to fix the problem. “I expect a company to be truthful with any press statements and to do fact checking,” he said. “I expect a comprehensive solution in a Continue reading >>
