Diabetes Treatment: Novel and Future Modalities

Article excerpt

The aim of advanced diabetes technologies is to develop effective devices and systems for the treatment and prevention of diabetes and related complications. These technologies include insulin pumps and other insulin delivery devices as well as continuous glucose monitors (invasive and noninvasive sensors). Combining these systems into a closed-loop system will hopefully enable optimal diabetes control with minimal patient interventions and comprise the "artificial pancreas".

Insulin remains the most powerful agent we have to control diabetes, when used appropriately in a basal/bolus format, near-normal glycemia can be achieved. Novel insulin analogues and improved insulin delivery devices along with glucose sensors will revolutionize diabetes management. …
