Medtronic made two announcements today. One expected and one not expected.
- The expected announcement of sales of the 770g pump in the US. Medtronic has signaled that as early as November Medtronic will start shipping the 770 insulin pump. The 770 pump is approved for us with children as young as 2.
For those who do not know the 770g will connect to apple or android telephones to record and transmit blood sugar results.
It will not allow dosing from the attached cell telephone and it will have the same algorithm as the 670G…
The pump be the first step in a future more advanced upgrade. Which may be done using a software upgrade.
as part of the announcement, the 770g pump will no longer support the present Ascensia Diabetes, meter. in its place the 770g will support a roche’ meter.

And now my disclaimer.
I am a Medtronic ambassador. My opinions are my own. They did not pay me to say nice things. OK, they sent me a shirt and a cup but even I am more expensive than that.
