I have a mixed response for the comment...although I understand the humor. The fact is, if you depend on a medical device to stay alive, if it does not work, for whatever reason, it can cause death.
One example has to do with a BG meter problem caused by interaction between the chemicals used in the test strips and chemicals used to treat kidney disease. Several deaths were reported from the treatment used to manage the incorrect BG readings, both at home and in the hospital.
The strips are now off the market and have been recalled and have been replace with new strip chemistry and patient warnings. That is why a Meter is classified as a Class 1 medical device.
The CGM has several warnings on the packaging about not depending on the device for measuring BG, only a monitor should be used to measure BG.
By the way...fact, insulin leaves no trace after a heart attack caused by overdose and low BG in non Ds. The trick is finding a way to get it in the body w/o leaving a mark...mystery writers go crazy with this one.
I do have to tell you that I am a T1D (40 yrs) and work for a company that makes meters, strips and CGMs.
Keep the humor coming, it's good for the sole.
