a note from GaryA quick note from Gary…It’s In The Way That You Use It

Back in 1986, Eric Clapton’s song “It’s In the Way That You Use It” was a big hit.  I was in college at the time, probably falling asleep in classes, and just getting used to life with diabetes.  Little did I know that those song lyrics would apply so perfectly to my practice in 2018.

Case in point:  Insulin pumps, CGMs and hybrid closed loop systems represent marvels of biomedical engineering, yet most people who use these devices fail to achieve the kind of results implied by the smiling faces on the brochure covers.  That’s where we come in.  Our clinical team specializes at helping folks to truly benefit from these and other mechanical marvels.  As we like to say, “Don’t just survive… THRIVE!”

For instance, we’ve put together a comprehensive tips/pointers guide for 670G users to help our patients overcome some of the struggles that they face in “Auto Mode”.  And we’re always available to help fine-tune basic pump settings and get the most of out the latest CGM devices.  We can also discuss off-the-radar options such as Open-APS and the Loop app.  In fact, you might enjoy my latest Think Like A Pancreas blog comparing FDA-approved devices (like the Medtronic 670G) to do-it-yourself systems (like Looping).  Our team has used and instructed patients on both, so we can offer you insight on the pros & cons each has to offer.

Anyway, enough about us.  I hope you enjoy this month’s edition of Diabetes Bites.  If there is anything we can do for you or a loved one to improve life with diabetes, please reach out.

By |May 29th, 2018|
