England To Try “Artificial Pancreas” Technology To Control Diabetes

England’s NHS is set to bring new technology to the scene to treat those who are having trouble controlling their type 1 diabetes. More than 100,000 people with type 1 diabetes in England and Wales may soon get access to “artificial pancreas” to help them stabilize type 1 diabetes.

The new method uses an algorithm to analyze the amount of insulin that the body requires. The insulin is provided automatically using a glucose sensor beneath the skin and a pump. It is so far “the best way to control diabetes,” some health experts mentioned. 

Mimicking A Pancreas

The latest technology to be offered to the public does the same and the patient can go off and live a normal life without having to check high and low glucose levels.
