thats the one that is like a pager that you wear all the time right? with the tubing? it would be cool if the tube could be neon or UV reactive...then youd be all cyborg n shit.

well, either way, here's to better health, eh?

Plastic is pretty much always going to fluoresce under UV. That's sweet, Rev. You will be a much happier man with that thing.

One thing to watch out for is that the insert site can lead to more fat cells at that spot. A small price to pay for better glycosylated hemoglobin levels and less highs and lows.

heh, yup. . . that would rule. I've wornt the infusion set's and they're suprisingly comfortable.

when it finally get's insurance company approval, it has an implanted blood glucose monitoring system that radios the state of your blood sugar to it.

But I don't have the $1K for the tester or the supplies as of yet. . .
