I read an excellent article yesterday, 1/5/21, that gives a summary of new innovations for tx of T1 using technology. New tech mentioned includes apps for bolusing from smartphones,
Tandem is expected to launch of new, smaller pump. ,“It’s a micro-pump hybrid of sorts, roughly half the size of the t:slim X2 pump and without any display screen at all.” There are other exciting developments such as the Dexcom G7 which is very slim. Many other developments are included in the article.

Tidepool Finalizes FDA Submission for Insulin-Dosing App

January 11, 2021

Tidepool, a nonprofit organization founded by diabetics, caregivers and healthcare providers, announced that it has completed its marketing submission to the FDA for the Tidepool Loop, an automated insulin-dosing app designed to help manage type 1 diabetes.

The agency has now begun the substantive review of the product, which could become the first Apple iOS app for automatic insulin dosing if cleared.

Tidepool anticipates that the app, which can connect to a variety of insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitoring systems, should be available later this year.

Pamela, Thanks! Tidepool’s app sounds like an exciting development. My wife & I are frugal. Frugality means I still use an older Samsung Android. Lately we’ve been talking about an upgraded phone for me bc of all the new tech that uses the patient’s phone. I still use G6 partnered with t:slim x2 not my phone. The development of Tidepool’s Insulin Dosing App which you posted adds weight to that consideration. Thanks for informing me & other forum members.
