de Montford University survey helps design new insulin pump for the future | October 21, 2009

Diabetes is a common condition for which treatments are available but not always optimal. The therapeutic aim, using insulin, tablets, diet and physical activity, is to keep blood glucose within the normal limits. This is because the high glucose levels associated with diabetes may eventually lead to ill health with outcomes such as heart disease, stroke, pain and poor blood supply to lower limbs, kidney disease and blindness, although these problems may take years to emerge. These are the well-known complications of both the common forms of diabetes (types 1 and 2) and can develop even when a person with diabetes does their best to comply with their recommended treatment.
