The Diabetes On-line community is all a buzz this morning with the news that the FDA approved the OK (a.k.a., clearance)for the Dexcom G4™ PLATINUM CGM.
Basically this means that for those who purchase/upgrade, etc to the Dexcom G4™ PLATINUM will be privy to a transmitter that when worn will be able to transmit within a 20 ft range to a sleek receiver; choose from a variety of different colors (not to mention alarms & melodies,) all while carrying a receiver that's only 1/2 an inch thick and works with The Dexcom Studio software.
And according to the press release:
Clinical trials report up to approximately 19 percent improvement in overall accuracy for the Dexcom G4 PLATINUM compared to the Seven Plus, and approximately a 30 percent improvement in accuracy in the hypoglycemia range (i.e., when blood glucose is less than 70mg/dl).
As far as form, function & diabetes technology go, the Dexcom G4™ PLATINUM is looking and sounding VERY COOL.
