FDA clears an interoperable, automated insulin pump

By Jon Fingas, Engadget

It might soon be decidedly easier for Americans to manage diabetes -- the FDA has approved the sale of an interoperable, automated insulin pump for the first time. Tandem Diabetes Care's updated t:slim X2 can pair with a Dexcom G6 glucose monitor to dynamically adjust your insulin levels and keep you in a safe glucose range for longer. It can accommodate exercise and sleep, and the Dexcom tie-in spares you from having to stick your finger when you're either dosing yourself at meal time or calibrating.

The software needed to make this work will be ready in January 2020, although you can't expect to walk into a store and buy this. US law will still require that you buy the pump from (or on the order of) a physician.

This isn't the first time the FDA has cleared multiple devices to work together for automated insulin dosing. However, this new category could theoretically improve the quality of life for diabetics. You could keep your glucose levels balanced in a more seamless, pain-free way with equipment that should be easy to use. It won't be surprising if there's a surge of interconnected devices like this in the relatively near future.
