Seeing as there's a bit of interest, I might set up a blog
Pump doesn't do blood testing, that'd be the 'holy grail' closed loop system (tests and delivers insulin according to needs). Pump mimics what would normally happen, so it's continually giving you insulin so you don't need a basal. You don't do any injections, just change the cannula every few days. As Dickbarton of this parish put it to me, think of it as 1 injection every 3 days, whereas I'd normally be doing somewhere around 20ish!
I have heard that there are some implant testers being worked on and thee is some limited success where they last a month before needing to be replaced. Results are blue toothed to a reader
Also, speaking to the guy from Roche, he said there is development with 3D photography for calculating carb content of food. Tell the device your eating, say, pasta, point the device at it, press the button and it works out the carb content from the size of your dinner!!!!
At work at the moment (hence on here ), so will finish up and then sort a blog out
