- No carb counting- Instead of carb counting everything on your plate, the iLet just needs an estimate of the carbs in your meal — Usual for me, More or Less.
- No corrections- The iLet makes the corrections for you. If you’re trending high, it will automatically give you more insulin to bring you back in range. If you’re trending low, it will reduce your current insulin dosage.
- ILet algorithms- The “Bionic” part of the iLet that communicates with your CGM and makes all the insulin dosing decisions—no carb counting, no correction factors, no adjustments.
- No pre-set basal rate- iLet learns your needs and automatically adjusts your basal rate on the go.
- Simple setup- No settings are required to be entered or adjusted—the iLet system only needs your weight to get started.
- Small but mighty- Small (2.3” x 3.5” x 0.6”), lightweight and easy to put in your pocket or clip to your clothing.
- Talks to your Dexcom CGM- Your iLet device communicates directly with your Dexcom G6 to know where your glucose is headed.
- Water resistant- If you drop your iLet in water—no problem! It’s protected in up to 12 feet of water for up to 30 minutes.
After startup, the iLet learns about YOU – your basal insulin needs, how to correct you to target, and how much insulin you need for your meals. The goal of the iLet is to reduce the burden of diabetes management.

What is the difference between Medicare and Medicaid?
Medicaid is an assistance program. It serves low-income people of various ages. Medical bills are paid from federal, state and local tax funds. Patients usually pay no part of the costs or very little for covered medical expenses, although a small co-payment is sometimes required. Medicaid is a federal-state program. It is run by state and local governments within federal guidelines, so it varies from state to state.
Medicaid es un programa de asistencia. Atiende a personas de bajos ingresos de distintas edades. Las facturas médicas se pagan con fondos procedentes de los impuestos federales, estatales y locales. Los pacientes suelen pagar poco o nada por los gastos médicos cubiertos, aunque a veces se exige un pequeño copago. Medicaid es un programa federal-estatal. Lo gestionan los gobiernos estatales y locales dentro de las directrices federales, por lo que varía de un estado a otro.
