Dexcom CGM on American Idol (Video)

Dexcom CGM citing on American Idol!

Not sure how many folks are still hanging with American Idol in what feels like it's 900th season but if you were watching last night - you would have seen the Dexcom CGM make an appearance.

A musician named Adam Lasher was asked, "Is that your phone" when judge Keith Urban notices something clipped to his guitar strap, Adam responded by saying, "no I'm diabetic... it's my robotic pancreas you could say". It seemed to me that Adam was trying to explain what his CGM was without going into a long description when he called it a 'robotic pancreas' but then he does a very good job of describing what his CGM does, though he never calls it by name. The judges go on to say that Robotic Pancreas would make a great band name.

After the chatting is finished Adam plays an original song. Oh and by the way... he's Carlos Santana's nephew. Enough of my describing something that you can just watch, get clicking and see for yourself. Spoilers, Adam makes it to the next round so maybe we'll be seeing more of his Dexcom CGM on television again. 

Don't miss my new podcast interview with Adam!

Facebook was abuzz with parents talking about how great it was for their kids to see someone on TV using the diabetes tech that they do, I wonder if Adam knows how many children and parents he made happy tonight by not hiding his Dex? Thanks Adam!

Pretty cool seeing the Dex on American Idol, can't wait to show Arden!
