I have a Dexcom G4 (which I’m very happy with) and an Animas pump (also happy).
I’m not sure I’m ready to DIY loop, but I am ready to use technology to help support my decisions and to make predictions about where my BG is heading.
I’m intrigued by xdrip but I’m not clear about exactly what it is. Is it a way for Android phone users to get dexcom info onto their phones and smartwatches? Is it an app that takes dexcom data plus pump data and user inputed data and uses it to support decision making and to show richer information than a dexcom receiver alone? Is it primarily a piece of a DIY loop system? I’ve done some quick google searches, but I’m afraid it’s not clear to me.
Another question that is part of this. Right now, I don’t have a smartphone. If I choose an iPhone, would I find apps that show dexcom data and support decision making? Is xdrip a better app than the ones available for iPhone or are there similar apps for both?
Thanks so much for your collective help with this.
