Coming Soon: The Artificial Pancreas

Can you imagine wearing an artificial pancreas in the year 2018? Well, we have the panel of all panels regarding all the current developments in the artificial pancreas space. These worldwide leaders and superstars who are on the cutting edge represent and have done research on the multiple AP systems in development: Animas, Tandem, Bigfoot, Medtronic, etc. What the heck will we do with all of our free time if we don’t have to think about our diabetes and being in the zone all day?

    Hello,

    We have a friend with Type 1 diabetes who has reached the end of the road -he is not yet 50 years old, has a transplanted kidney, he was on a waiting list at McGill in Montreal for an islet transplant (Islets of Langerhans) when the government cancelled the program. He is no longer able to control his glucose levels and his transplanted kidney is in difficulty. His doctors recommend the Medtronic 670G. He was ready to go to the USA to get the pump, but they refused him because he is not American. The pump is not yet approved in Canada.

    Can you help??
