November is Diabetes Awareness Month (in fact the 14th is World Diabetes Day) so this announcement seems timely.
In late 2017 I was involved in conducting a survey of the Australian DIY-looping community. It’s taken a very long time to get this through the peer-review and publishing process, but now our article discussing the results has been published in the Internal Medicine Journal (the official journal of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians). It’s in the “Brief Communications” section of the journal.
Hopefully the publication of “Appearance of Do-It-Yourself closed-loop systems to manage type 1 diabetes” will expose some more doctors to the concept of closed-loop systems!
Note that unlike many journal articles, our article is not hidden behind a “paywall”. It is available for open access.
Of course the local population of loopers has grown massively in the year since the data for this article was collected, but it’s just another facet of the information we continue to push out to the local HCP community.
