FDA Warns Against DIY Closed-Loop Systems

FDA issued a safety communication regarding the use of unauthorized devices as part of closed-loop systems. Additionally, FDA said it has identified companies who are “illegally marketing components, such as unauthorized continuous glucose monitors that some patients may integrate into unauthorized automated insulin dosing systems.” According to the FDA communication, the warning is based on a report that a patient received too much insulin resulting in the need for medical intervention. Below, FENIX provides insight on the FDA communication including the potential impact on current closed-loop systems in development as well as thoughts on potential systems that are being marketed illegally.
