Things have been a little quiet in our video review hub, the DiabetesMine Test Kitchen, lately. But today we're excited to announce publishing of a long-awaited review of the Nightscout / CGM in the Cloud solution. This is the first "do-it-yourself" system we've reviewed, that isn't a commercial product. But clearly, this DIY system, which allows users to view and share continuous
glucose monitoring data on a variety of devices, has swept the type 1 diabetes community.
In case you're not familiar, it's associated with the whole #WeAreNotWaiting movement of patients taking matters into their own hands, building new useful solutions from existing technology.
Joanne Milo, a longtime type 1 and author who blogs at The Savvy Diabetic, does an excellent job explaining the value of Nightscout and why she loves using it, despite a few downsides.
Don't miss her great 5-minute overview!

And we hope you'll check out our whole growing collection of product reviews, by and for people with diabetes.
