    Meet the newest insulin pump: all about “twiist” with Sequel CEO Alan Lotvin

    This week, the newest pump coming to the market is called the twiist. It’s a very different shape – circular with a top half that twists off – with very different software – Tidepool Loop. The company behind this pump – they’re called Sequel - wants to be different as well, hoping to offer solutions to bigger issue than basal and bolus rates. It’s very ambitious and we have a wide ranging conversation about it all with Sequel’s CEO Alan Lotvin

    The FDA took down this teen’s free bolus calculator. He needs your help to bring it back.

    The FDA took down this teen’s free bolus calculator. He needs your help to bring it back.

    There used to be a lot of bolus calculators in the app store, maybe you’ve used one and haven’t updated it in a while. Don’t try now.. it’s likely been pulled. Apple and the FDA are cracking down on this types of tools – no unreasonable, right? But surely there are more coming.. how hard can it be to create a simple insulin bolus calculator that’s FDA approved, easy to find, easy to use, free, and doesn’t require you buy anything else? Turns out, it’s pretty darn hard. We’re talking about that today with the inventor of such an app with an interesting story – he’s still in high school.
    My guest this week was diagnosed with type 1 at age 13 – and while he and his family were calling in every blood sugar to help their doctor make adjustments, he thought there should be a better way. So Drew Mendelow created T1D1. I’ll let him and his parents Laura and Mike tell you more about it and what makes it unique.
    It was recommended by his doctors to other patients and the word spread – they had tens of thousands of downloads. But in 2021, the FDA started cracking down on these kinds of apps and Apple pulled it. Drew has been working toward approval ever since and they’re pretty close.

    Diabetes Technology: Expectation vs Reality with Dr. Stephen Ponder

    Diabetes Technology: Expectation vs Reality with Dr. Stephen Ponder

    Diabetes technology is getting better and better. We have automated insulin systems that link pumps and CGMs, and smart insulin pens that have precise calculations and reminders. It’s been quite the evolution over the past few years! But outcomes – time in range, A1Cs, aren’t exactly where experts thought they might be. I’m talking to Dr. Stephen Ponder about why that is, how a social media post he shared about this caused a strong reaction, and what does work for better long term outcomes.

Stacey Really Gets It

As a longtime PWD, I really value the perspectives shared by the parents of kids with diabetes. Stacey’s insights, humility, and honesty as a parent are as valuable as her segments reporting diabetes news. Great podcast!

UNCTroutman ,

Stacy finds great guests with expertise / experience that add value. A no-fluff but great listen!
