Infographic of the Medtronic Star 3 Clinical Trial

I like that trials like this one pave the way to validate the use of diabetes technology to help with diabetes management. Now we only need to work on making the technology accessible. Here’s to JDRF for what they are doing to make this happen for the Artificial Pancreas through their efforts in DC!

Thanks for the link! Interesting study. Also interesting where the goals of the study are oriented. I looked up “national average A1C or US average A1C” a couple of weeks ago and it was something like 9.2, although the citation seemed to be from 2002ish so who knows where we are now w/ the further collapse of the economy and subsequent uberrationing of test strips.
