    Thanks, Brenda. Bummed that the article states "late this year or 2017". Not sure we want to wait to buy a new pump until then!

    They were hoping to release it the end of last November and be shipping by February. Obviously that didn't happen. The last I heard a couple weeks ago is the FDA wanted 2 things cleared up and the person I got my information couldn't tell me any more than that. The jest I got is Medtronic wants everything very hush hush. Supposedly the programming is pretty cool and beyond anything else out right now. Our pump is out of warranty and we're anxiously awaiting something to happen soon.

    As of today, it's not yet submitted to the FDA for approval.

    That will likely happen soon, but it probably won't be approved until end of 2016 or even early next year.
