The New Medtronic Enlite Glucose Sensor

Medtronic Enlite Sensors Reviews Are in

So recently Medtronic released the much talked about Enlite Glucose Sensor to much chatter and fan fare.  Unfortunately for the folks in North America said sensors are still awaiting FDA approval, sorry guys!

I was fortunate enough to see the new sensor up close and personal when visiting the Medtronic European HQ back in March but as I don’t use a pump, I’m assured that I am light years away from a CGM.

Meanwhile back over in the Europe the sensors have hit the shelves are some reviews are in:  Go check them out!

Anna over at  http://insulinindependent.blogspot.com/ reviewed the sensor here Medtronic ‘Enlite’ CGM sensor launch just don’t mention “bum cheeks”.

Update: Anna at Insulin Independant has posted an update with her Enlite Sensor trial!

Alison over at http://www.shootuporputup.co.uk/ remarked Did the sensor (En)lite up my life?

Update:Alison  at ShootUp has also posted an update with her Enlite Sensor trials and tribulations!


If have come across a review of the new Enlite sensor, please do share (we like sharing) either by contacting me directly or leaving your comments below.

I’ll also leave some images for your perusal enjoy!

    Thanks for linking to the reviews. Since things are so slow on this side of the pond, it’s nice to know things are advancing somewhere!

      You’re welcome Lorraine. As you mention things take time and whilst the FDA may slow the process down I guess they are only trying to make everything as safe as can be however frustrating and/or damaging it may be for the end user/patient.

      Learning about the whole reimbursement issue that face companies such as Medtronic is quite baffling and the added complication we have here is that a product/device/drug may well be approved for Europe as a whole but it is still up to the individual countries. Nightmare!! 【ツ】

    […] that is trying to innovate within the insulin pen market, especially given when the buzz is in pump/cgm technology.  I for one look forward to trying out this product especially as we all know Multiple […]
