If you live overseas (Europe) - and one of the seven countries this device is coming to - then consider yourself lucky.
What I like so far in reading about it, is this sleek little CGMS doesn't even need you to test your own blood sugar (#BGNow) for calibration like many of the CGMS's that are on the market at the moment.
The display device takes a few seconds to take the readings from the sensor to show the results of 90 days of historical trends.
A few other details from the press release are:
- Disposable, water-resistant sensor can be worn on the back of the upper arm for up to 14 days
- Glucose readings can be taken as many times per day as needed or desired, with a painless one second scan
- Each scan provides a current glucose reading, 8-hour history and the direction glucose is heading
- The data generated by the system is designed to provide actionable trends and patterns that may help people determine how to modify food and other behaviors to better manage their diabetes in consultation with their healthcare professionals

I'm unable to post a picture of the device - so in order to see it ... go to this link - hopefully the Admin of Diabetes1.org will fix things up for me - since I have no control over my postings at time on this website - .... http://www.onlinetmd.com/medic...lt;/p>
