#WeAreNotWaiting is a social media hashtag about people with Type 1 Diabetes, or their parents, who are not waiting for the insulin pump and CGM companies to give them remote access to their own/child’s CGM data. This movement has created Nightscout, a full end-to-end solution for allowing someone to remotely monitor CGM data.
We are not waiting…
…for our child to be safe during sports
…for our child to safely have a sleepover at a friend’s house
…for a peace of mind that our children are safe
…to give our children a better chance to succeed at school
…for endocrinologists to assemble disjointed pieces of the data puzzle
…for the regulators to regulate
…for a cure
