I wanted to share with you the very exciting news that FDA
recently approved the first clinical trial in the U.S. of an artificial pancreas system to
be performed outside of a hospital! See
the JDRF statement for more details. It’s great to see the research advancing and FDA
helping to make it happen!
You can also read the statement the
University of Virginia put out.
That is awesome! Makin progress. My daughter was diagnosed on Dec 19th 2011 and I pray a cure is found soon!!
This is awesome!
Hurray, Our child who is now 41 years old was diagnosed at age 7. We kept promising him that things would get better. Hopefully this will enable him to die of old age and not diabetes complications. Blessings to all.
How do you get in the trial?
This is fantastic! How do I get in the trial?
I am a type 1 diabetic using a insulin pump and it makes my life a little easier, but it would be so great to have a artificial pancreas. I am a a firefighter and I love my job, but I worry about my sugar dropping while working. I hope one day I myself could experience what it would be like to be normal again. I know I'm not the only one who would love to part of these trials. I pray everyone gets this chance!
We have 2 type one and four type twos in our family this is awesome news.
Would love to get information on how to get into the trial!
I have been living with my juvenile diabetes for five years now and it's news like this that keeps me hanging on to the hope that a cure will be found.

I would like to know if there are any studies currently taking place for patients having a difficult time keeping A1C down due to his mothers chronic illness of Multiple Sclerosis and complete chaos in our lives right now.

a prescription for the contunuous Glucose Monitor.
