Insulin Pump With Blood Sugar Sensor May Improve on Injections

id. "It's really the patient who is motivated and gets the proper guidance who can use this technology most effectively."

Short- and long-term blood sugar trends and patterns can also be downloaded from the device for viewing by the patient and doctors, Bergenstal noted.

Though often lumped together, type 1 and type 2 diabetes are in many ways different diseases. In type 1 diabetes, formerly called juvenile diabetes, the pancreas stops producing insulin, the hormone that enables the body to convert sugar and starches found in foods into energy.

About 5 percent to 10 percent of people with diabetes have type 1, according to the American Diabetes Association. Tight blood sugar control can minimize the risk of long-term complications, including kidney failure, blindness and nerve damage.

"It's important for people to realize there is a real change in the long-term outlook for the health of people with type 1 diabetes, and that's what this new technology represents," Wolpert said.
