In an extended feature, we look at Medtronic’s MiniMed 670G system, a hybrid closed loop. We talk to developers as well as Rob Howe, who is someone who has been using the system for nearly a year. Plus, there’s been a royal visit to Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge where Dr Roman Hovorka continues his work on an artificial pancreas. Plus there’s lot of lovely food info — from seasonal snacks to festive favourites like cabbage and sprouts (OK, so maybe not everyone’s favourite!). While David Andrews tells of his diabetes kit while handling his Type 2 diabetes, as well as his second career as a luthier. Season’s greetings!
