Glucose Control Therapies
Finding simpler and more advanced ways to help people living with type 1 diabetes control their blood glucose levels is one of the best ways to improve lives today. With recent advances in technology, approval of hybrid-closed loop systems and new drug classes being investigated, there has never been a better time to have diabetes. Glucose control therapy research focuses three core areas:
- Artificial pancreas (AP) technologies such as the recently approved Control-IQ from Tandem Diabetes Care
- Next-generation insulin classes such as ultra-fast insulin, and “smart” insulin that can automatically react to the changes in the blood glucose levels
- Investigation into other drug classes such as SGLT inhibitors to improve blood glucose management
Helping people with type 1 diabetes (T1D) manage their blood glucose levels not only lowers the risk for future complications, it makes every day easier to get through without constantly worrying about your numbers!
