    I did a brilliant review of the Aviva Expert earlier – I think it’s a great wee gadget. Limited only by your imagination, what diabetes gadget would you love to see available and in your hands now?

    For me it would be software that could analyse the mass of data produced by the pump and blood glucose meter and suggest possible tweaks to your doses, etc.

    I don’t know about you but when I download my pump / meter data I’m overwhelmed by graphs and figures. Maths ain’t my strong point.

    For me it would be a type of augmented reality app so that I could point my phone / meter / Novopen at a plate of food and it would calculate the carbs and (what the Expert does already) advise on dosage.

    Oh and a CGM that doesn’t require constant additional stabby tests.

    Simples.

    The blood glucose reading contact lenses which Neville reported here:

    would be cool – no stabbing required!

    I agree Tim, something which you could tell (by voice!! not laboriously typing in) everything about one of your says, or a series of days, with all the doses and food and exercise etc etc, and have it tell you exactly where your setting are right or wrong. Wonder how long that’ll be?

    By the way, do you mean you wrote a review about the brilliant Aviva Expert, or that you wrote a brilliant review about the Aviva Expert? I mean, it was a brilliantly written review, but I say old chap, bit big-headed, what?

    @lizz – I have an ego the size of Jupiter, so – yes – it was indeed big-headed! But when you’re as brilliant as me one tends to be. ;-)

    Whoa!

    OK, let’s try this again. For my next gadget I would like an app to accurately forecast this weeks six winning lottery numbers – not diabetes related but it’s worth a shot.

    Darn! You reminded me, I forgot to do the lottery yesterday! I’ve never done it before, but yesterday I was rung up in the morning to be told we had won the raffle at the pet shop (to support working dogs, so we bought a row) and mailed to say my book now has a publisher. I felt it was an auspicious occasion to try my luck anywhere and everywhere, but now it’s too late!!!!!

    Hurrah @lizz – I hope you’re going to mercilessly plug your book here :-) We like talented contributors!

    It depends, it’s poetry, not sure – well come to think of it there is a thread… Lol! It’s not about diabetes, it’s about endangered animals.

    Many congratulations on the publication of your poetry @lizz, I hope it sells zillions of copies! My ultimate diabeasties gadget would be non-intrusive CGM, not quite as important for me as for you T1 pumpers, but the ‘non-intrusive’ bit would be wonderful; no more pepper pot fingers!
