Autopilot for diabetics

Dear Sir or Madam,

The autopilot has become very useful in aviation: The human pilot leaves flying to a computer and only needs to intervene in special situations. Many diabetics, however, face the contrary problem: They have to intervene quite often when their blood sugar becomes dangerously high or low. They could really use an autopilot that takes care of their blood sugar most of the time. Read in our current interview how an artificial pancreas could accomplish this.

Have a safe week!

Antibody-coated, drug-eluting stents (AB-DES) feature an exterior coated with immunosuppressant drugs and an interior that is coated with antibodies to accelerate the adhesion of endothelial cells. In theory, this makes it possible to shorten the duration of therapy with blood thinners, which can mean relief for patients from an already difficult situation.

Poor self-management may result in a dangerous lapse in blood glucose levels. Yet external factors can also contribute to diabetes being out of control. An artificial pancreas system could offer relief.
