The FDA Just Approved the Artificial Pancreas.


We are always excited about new technology and medical breakthroughs, but this is some of the most exciting news we’ve heard in a while! On Wednesday, September 28th, the FDA approved the first automated insulin delivery device, or “artificial pancreas.”

Why is this news so great? Well, this first-of-its-kind technology allows people with type 1 diabetes to experience a greater degree of freedom by offering continuous monitoring of their glucose levels. This task is currently a 24-7 responsibility required of patients with type 1, but with the new artificial pancreas, the individual would only be required to manually administer insulin after meals and to alert the device when they are exercising.

This incredible device is projected to become available in the Spring of 2017, and we couldn’t be more thrilled!
