Do you like continuous access to your CGM BG data so that your DIY Loop WORKS?! Do you know that we might lose that access with Dexcom G7 (they will not tell us) - Abbott Libre3 has never allowed access?
WE NEED YOU TO ACT … IT MATTERS!
Please join me in a letter-writing campaign to fill their inbox with our comments and concerns! NOW!
“I live with insulin-requiring diabetes, an incurable chronic disease requiring continuous monitoring of blood glucose values and administration of insulin. It is imperative that access to my own devices remains possible. The ability to receive glucose values from my continuous glucose monitor and the ability to command my insulin pump to deliver insulin are already permitted and expected of me. In fact, if I don’t do these, I will die. So please do not let medical device manufacturers use cybersecurity as a pretense to prevent me from accessing my own devices.”
“When you put your name (or even if you post anonymously) consider including ‘pwd’ or ‘t1d’ or however you identify yourself as someone with diabetes, I.e. ‘Sally Smith, T1D’ so that they know our community has a voice”
If you do nothing else today, listen to my interview with Scott Benner and take action now, by letting the FDA know that taking away access to our data will do great harm AND asking others to do same, on your social media groups and pagea, in your local groups, and in larger ones.
In this podcast episode, we lay out the issue and WHY it’s such an issue. If you didn’t understand before, you will now!
This is not only about DIY looping… how do you like those watch faces you find so helpful? Sugarmate? Sugarpixel? Glowcose? And all the homemade versions of data displays that are used personally but are not on the market? Those would not have been possible without access to our own data.
Additionally, innovations in the DIY community are what have enabled the big companies to get their products to the point they’re at today, serving an enormous sector that doesn’t even realize it… and these innovations are constant.
It is important to act quickly, and it will only take a couple minutes.
