More and more people are developing diabetes due to the fact that we tend to eat a lot of junk food and sugary products. When it comes to type 1 diabetes causes the pancreas to secret little to no insulin. The disease affects the body making you lazy and sleepy.
Many specialists are conducting studies in order to find a way to help people with diabetes have a normal life. Despite the fact that treatments for this disease have evolved over time diabetes can’t be cured. That is why researchers are trying to figure a way to help diabetes patients.
Many believe that they found a way to “cure” type 1 diabetes. An artificial pancreas could be the best treatment for type 1 diabetes. The technology has evolved and some companies are already developing artificial pancreases.
The artificial pancreas which is believed to cure this disease is the size of a phone and the people who use it will carry it around just like they do now with their insulin pump. Despite the fact that the artificial pancreas can help people, they still need to follow a strict diet and exercise regularly.
The specialists mentioned that compared to the insulin pump, the artificial device can correct a mistake that was made. Just a few months ago the FDA approved this artificial organ.
The researchers mentioned that people who are going to use this artificial organ need to test their blood sugar two or three times a day in order to know if the device is working properly. People will have a better life once they start using this device. This is if the tech companies start to produce it and if it is a success.
We’ll just have to wait and see if they are able to produce this device. People mentioned that they don’t believe that this is a cure but it can help them cope with this disease better than any other treatment. Technology is very important for medicine because it helps specialists develop better treatments for people who suffer from some diseases.
What is your opinion about the artificial pancreas? Do you think that it is going to be effective?
