FDA Approves First Automated Insulin System For Type 1 Diabetes

img_7878

For diabetes patients, managing blood sugar levels through insulin pens, needles or pumps is a necessary hassle — but it might be far easier to handle going forward. The US Food and Drug Administration has approved the first automated insulated delivery device for type 1 diabetes, Medtronic’s MiniMed 670G. The gadget uses a sensor to detect glucose levels under your skin every 5 minutes, and supplies just enough insulin to keep your blood sugar stable. While you do have to trigger a manual insulin dose after meals, you generally won’t have to be as involved in the process as before.

The technology isn’t flawless. A trial only showed that the 670G works for 14-year-olds and older, so you’ll have to wait for subsequent tests to see if it’s safe for children aged 7 and up. It’s demonstrably more effective at maintaining safe blood sugar levels, but it’s not so effective that you’ll always be in your target range. And of course, this doesn’t help with type 2 diabetes, which is far more common — you’re stuck with conventional solutions in that case. Nonetheless, this is a big step toward a day when diabetes is more of a minor nuisance in daily life than a constant presence.

Mika Brzezinski who over and over argued, that although Hillary was amazing, fantastic, and unbelievable,  it was Donald Trump who walked away the winner politically because he was able to “connect” with the concerns of broad swaths of the electorate. If you want to see “UNBELIEVABLE” you have to view the VIDEO below just to understand the depths of Mika’s despair.. ………….Papa Mike

Charlotte Rioters Don’t Care If Shooting Was Justified

Via NY Post:

The Charlotte rioters didn’t know whether the controversial police shooting of Keith Scott was justified, and didn’t care.

They worked their mayhem — trashing businesses and injuring cops, with one protester killed in the disorder — before anything meaningful could be ascertained about the case except that the cops said Scott had a gun and his family said he didn’t.

Charlotte is the latest episode in the evidence-free Black Lives Matter movement that periodically erupts in violence after officer-involved shootings. The movement is beholden to a narrative of systematic police racism to which every case is made to conform, regardless of the facts or logic.

It doesn’t matter if the police officer is an African-American with an unblemished record and numerous character witnesses. This describes Brentley Vinson, the officer who fatally shot Keith Scott.

It doesn’t matter if the victim disobeys the police in a tense situation and acts in a potentially threatening manner. Despite cops with guns drawn yelling orders at him (and his wife shouting, “Don’t you do it”), Scott exited his vehicle and approached officers without raising his hands.
