Please excuse my pessimism but this does not appear to be a breakthrough.

They are just adding computer algorithms to the current hardware. They do not mention how to address the huge accuracy problem with today's CGMS systems. I actually stopped using CGMS because it was too inaccurate. My a1c was 6.5 with CGMS and 5.9 without.

Also William Tamborlane is quoted in the article as saying "You don't have to get the perfect system to make a tremendous advance and make it considerably easier to live with diabetes". He is obviously NOT a Diabetic or else he would not advocate using an imperfect system that delivers a hormone capable of sending your body into shock.
