Artificial Pancreas Could Be Answer For Diabetes

(Huffington Post) There’s good news on the horizon for those who suffer from diabetes: a new technology that enables the creation of an artificial pancreas could replace your insulin shots and automatically regulate the body’s levels with nothing for you to worry about on your side...
 Those who suffer from Type 1 diabetes may be able to replace painful insulin injections with an artificial pancreas instead. The artificial organ includes a sensor that automatically tests blood sugar levels and adds insulin as needed to sustain the body.
Current devices can only do one thing: monitor glucose or administer insulin. But the artificial pancreas can do both, effectively offering a solitary solution to help curb a worldwide pandemic.
You can thank researchers at the Cambridge University for this invention. Following the clinical trials, patients agreed that it was a better way for them to manage the symptoms of this disease.
