Thread: MySentry - MM CGMS users

  1. #1

    Default MySentry - MM CGMS users

    Did you all see this on the focus groups offered at FFL this summer?:

    MySentryTM
    Company: Medtronic Diabetes
    Location: Coronado E
    Time: 11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
    Open to: Everyone

    MySentryTM is a glucose monitoring system that enables parents and loved ones that have family members that utilize insulin pump technology and sensor technology to have glucose levels transmitted to display units anywhere in the house. As your child or significant other sleeps, the display until will alert when glucose levels exceed low or high thresholds, giving you peace of mind from the comforts of your bedside table or other rooms in the house.
    It is possible that this means they expect the product to be released by then? Are they allowed to show products that are not through the FDA approval at FFL? Could it finally, finally, finally almost be here?!

    By the way, I sent an e-mail to Medtronic asking about this. I expect to receive a non-answer shortly.

    ETA: I like the sound of display units, plural. I wonder if you could buy an extra display unit for the nurse's office at school?!

    I emailed MM about this last month, and they confirmed that it is called the Sentry, and was in clinical testing this Spring at certain locations in the US. Did not hear when they plan to release it. It can not come soon enough.

    I would order it on the SPOT if they had it available at FFL! I'm sure they won't, but I'm excited that they're having a focus group on it anyway. Definitely one I'll attend.

    I wouldn't even wait for insurance to clear, I'd pay OOP for that in a second.

    I haven't heard back from Medtronic yet, but my rep e-mailed me back. She didn't have any new information besides that they are having a national sales rep meeting at the endo of this month, and maybe she'd know more then.

    Default Updates?

    Has anyone heard any updates about this coming out? Has it made it through the trials? Is it available in other countries?

    Awesome! Maybe they are close. I did go to a session at FFL once from Dexcom that talked about stuff they were thinking of designing.
