An ‘Artificial Pancreas’ system using pumps and monitors to improve blood sugar control in diabetes patients has been tested in a medical trial by researchers from Britain’s Cambridge University and shown to keep blood sugar levels within the normal range 60% of the time.
Children with Type 1 diabetes were given a matchbox-sized monitor and a like-sized pump fitted with a tube to deliver insulin into the body. The device was able to stabilize blood sugar and reduce the amount of time that blood sugar remained at a dangerous level by half.
