Another Eyewitness Testimony; Lesley Berchtold Tells About Her UVA APP Trial — She Is the Cure, Too!

1 Comment

The future of improved diabetes control is coming fast; it’s kinda like the small light at the end of the tunnel. The light is a freight train carrying the Artificial Pancreas Closed Loop solution currently being tested and in trials at the Center for Diabetes Technology at the University of Virginia and 4 other leading universities in the world.

Artificial Pancreas Mobile Technology

One of the possible “brains” that will safely power the Artificial Pancreas Closed Loop system via an ordinary “smart phone.” Once in use, the quality of life and health improvements will be amazing for Persons With Diabetes (PWD).

With Full Disclosure and Much Credit — Here is a recent Podcast done by my friend, Tony Rose, who is a veteran contributor to the Diabetes Online Community (DOC), a fellow PWD and someone I called when I was starting Werthecure.com  this year.

“In this episode of the Blogging Diabetes Podcast I talk to Lesley Berchtold about her history with diabetes and more recently, her in and out patient trial at UVA for the Artificial Pancreas. It was an eye opening interview that I certainly learned a lot from and appreciate Lesley talking about her experiences,” Tony blogged earlier this month.

If you’ve got feedback, comments on the APP or wish to “blog” about something in this space — let me know. It’s an open forum for Type 1 diabetes, research and clinical solutions and for the people who are living and thriving with this chronic disease. We R the Cure.

Diabetes doesn't define me; it inspires me to define the future for individuals living with autoimmune diseases like Type 1 diabetes. -- Mike Anderson, diagnosed 1998.

  1. Thanks for the link Mike! I really enjoyed talking with Lesley and learned quite a bit about the APP. I was skeptical at first, but after talking with Lesley was more of a believer of the AP.
