AP, aka LGS in NEJM

Artificial Pancreas with kids at camp is the topic of  New England Journal of Medicine article just out called, Nocturnal Glucose Control with an Artificial Pancreas at a Diabetes Camp. It looks like they used the Medtronic Veo.



It is a report testing AP outside of the hospital. Reader digest version: Kids had fewer lows and better control with AP.

Very interesting, to see that study in Israel... more proof of how good the pudding is (wait, we're talking D-Devices, right?). Can't wait for the new Medtronic pump to get approved here in the U.S.... I SO want one! And look, science shows again: IT WORKS!!!
