From pretty reputable sources, although nothing can really be verified! LOL! You all may know a lot of this already but I'll throw it out there anyway: 1. Next generation Omnipod Pods WILL be smaller, even though they'll be integrated with Dexcom. 2. Dexcom is almost finished working on a very small implantable sensor which would only need to be replaced each year. It does require an office visit to a surgeon and would leave a 2-inch scar. Probably only for adults, I imagine. 3. We've all heard the Navigator transmitter will be made smaller, and we got that again. Many of the speakers think it's the most accurate sensor currently available but that improvements in the next generation MM will be great. 4. Lots of progress is being made in the area of prevention and restoration of beta cells for very new and early diagnoses. Specifically, infusing Anti-CD3 for 14 days consecutively in a person with a new diagnosis prevents further beta cell destruction for an entire year. They are now trying to see if further infusions of Anti-CD3 at the one-year mark will delay it for another 12 months. 5. Scientists are finding that the encapsulated islet cells (LCT) are breaking down faster than they thought and are much more prone to immune system destruction than previously thought. Some people are also having a "poor reaction" to the seaweed/algae (not sure what that means and I didn't get a chance to ask) 6. 50% of new onset T1D occurs in people older than 18 now! 7. The rate of T1D diagnosis is increasing by 3-5% each year for the past several years. They don't know why. Currently it occurs in about 1:300. I know there's a LOT more, but at one point my notes look like chicken scratch! My DH took copious notes so I'll get his later and see if there's anything else I can find that's interesting or new enough to post.
