Tandem answers your questions about the newly approved and not- yet-released Basal IQ system. The FDA took a lot of people by surprise by approving it with the Dexcom G6.

We talk to Tandem's Molly McElwee Malloy about how the system works, when it'll be available to T:Slim users and what's next for the company. Malloy addresses why Tandem decided to pursue integration for Basal IQ with Dexcom's G6 when it had been initially submitted to the FDA with G5 technology.

Plus, in our Know Better segment this week, a Koala with type 1 may become the newest Dexcom poster child. You might have seen Quincy on social media.. now we’ll hear from his caretakers at the San Diego zoo.
