A sustained and controllable insulin release system

Diabetes is a disease that affects a great deal of the population, and one of the ways to combat this disease is through the use of insulin. Scientists in Japan have been working toward creating an insulin system that is both sustainable and controlled. It is unclear what the results of this research will be, due to the lack of research subjects, but it will be interesting to see if it affects the world in a positive way.

Key Takeaways:

  • The prevalence of diabetes is increasing around the world.
  • The best treatment for diabetes is the delivery of insulin into the body that is both controllable and sustainable over time to manage blood glucose levels.
  • Their current research focuses on combining SPRA technology with another development of their own that allows for better control of insulin release.

“In 2016, the World Health Organization estimated that 422 million people had the disease as the rate of obesity also increased.”
