Participating in Medtronic Minimed VEO and Enlite CGM SensorTrial

Yippee! I am going to participate in a four to five month trial that may put me on the Medtronic Minimed VEO, which has been available in Europe. The thing that makes me most giddy is the opportunity to try the new Continuous Glucose Sensors, called Enlite. YAY!

The Enlite CGM Sensor can be worn for 6 days and has a much different profile in terms of the size of the insertion needle and the inserter. YAY!

The VEO offers a Low Glucose Suspend (LGS) feature to halt insulin delivery when the CGM senses you are low. Both devices are long overdue to the American Market, so if I can help speed this sucker to market, SIGN ME UP!

I want this technology for me, but mostly I want it for my daughter. She is 11 now and middle school is so trying for a T1 kid. I can't hold her hand anymore, so I'd love it if the technology would give her more support.

I'll post more after my first appointment. Of course, there are lots of hurdles to qualifying, so cross your fingers for me!
