A Rube Goldberg Machine

Before we get started this is one the rare posts that you can share without violating my copyright. Along with all the data on CGM, Insulin pumps and drugs coming from ADA we’ve also seen some interesting data on the economic impact of diabetes. Now just to be clear from the start we do not have a clue how this issue gets solved. Our healthcare system is one big, disjointed...

Captain Obvious

With the ADA in full swing, virtually anyway, some key trends have emerged. First and this should be obvious by now CGM is the most transformative diabetes device ever.
