Here's the dream device I want: an integrated CGM/Insulin-pump device.
Along with that, I’d like a food log with voice recognition capabilities. It should also be able to track other diabetes details, like:
- How much sleep did I get last night?
- Am I stressed out? Under the weather?
- Did I exercise today? At what time? For how long?
- Am I properly hydrated?
- How many days since last site change?
- How old is this insulin?
It would be really fantastic if the device could learn some of this information through observation. Maybe there’s an embedded pedometer or fit-bit that tracks movement?
This artificial pancreas is a good start.
