Kaufman is grateful for the new advances in technology but believes the best is yet to come: Dr. Kaufman is leading the development of an artificial pancreas.
“We have come a long way, and the reality of an artificial pancreas is in sight,” she writes. “The end result will be the near-perfect control of glucose levels without much human intervention.”
