Smart Insulin Patch Could Revolutionize Diabetes Treatments

This smart insulin patch, if proven safe and effective in human trials, would revolutionize the patient experience of diabetes care.


In experiments, a one quarter-sized patch successfully controlled glucose levels in pigs with type I diabetes for about 20 hours,  researchers said. The pigs weighed about 55 pounds on average.

This new development could revolutionize how glucose levels are monitored in diabetes patients and deliver insulin doses when necessary.
