ILet Bionic Pancreas – No carb countings

iLet Bionic Pancreas

First, let’s give a recap to anyone who can’t remember what are insulin pumps and how they work.

Well, insulin pumps are used to administer insulin doses. These pumps work in place of insulin injections and we can say that these pumps have minimized the hassle of injecting insulin, especially for those who are suffering from type 1 diabetes and require insulin twice or thrice every single day.

Usually, these pumps deliver insulin using a small plastic tube. It’s worth noting that insulin pumps inject insulin directly into our bloodstream, so the process is quite effective.

Just so you know, there are some tubeless pumps as well, like OmniPod 5 G6 which are available in CGM Monitors’ inventory. However, the new iLet Bionic Pancreas comes with a smart algorithm and many people are finding it useful so let’s jump into its details.

What is iLet Bionic Pancreas?

It’s an insulin pump that uses a smart algorithm and does not require you to keep calculating your carbs. Instead, only tell iLet if the meal you are going to take has less or more carbohydrates than you usually consume and it will automatically determine how much insulin to inject. And yes, whether your sugar goes high or low, your iLet will cover you in both cases.

Remember that you need to have insulin available in the cartridge. Otherwise, iLet would not be able to inject insulin doses.

No more Calculations before Meals

Simply enter your meal announcement into the system and inform iLet if the amount of carbs you are going to consume is more or less than your usual carbs intake. This smart insulin pump will use this information and inject insulin accordingly.

In case you forget to enter this meal info:

In this case, iLet shall communicate with your CGM (Dexcom G6 or Dexcom G7) and give you the insulin dose accordingly. However, please note that you may experience high or low sugar levels in this case for a longer time as compared to if you have already informed iLet about this meal.

Do NOT announce after you have already consumed your meal, because this may result in overdose of Insulin.

Can I change the insulin amount myself?

No. Please note that all the doses are automatic. The iLet system keeps on learning your sugar fluctuations and will adjust the doses accordingly. You cannot change the insulin doses yourself. The maximum you can do is to disconnect the insulin pump.

Important

Please do not trick the system otherwise this blood glucose system will get worse.

Some extremely important tips to keep in mind:

  • Choose your meal on the basis of Carbs you are going to consume and NOT on the basis of total size of the meal.
  • Remember not to give any meal announcements just to consume more insulin (when you are not actually going to have a meal). This can result in severe problems.
  • If you decide to eat more, only tell iLet about the extra carbohydrates you are going to consume and not the carbs you have already consumed.

ATTENTION

After 30 minutes of taking a meal, your glucose is already rising and the iLet has already dosed insulin according to your rising CGM levels, even without a meal announcement. If you announce a meal during this time, extra insulin will be stacked which can result in severe hypoglycemia.

How to give accurate Meal Announcements to iLet?
