A Blood Glucose Monitor Designed With Consumers, Not Patients, In Mind
-Sony Salzman Lonny Stormo was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in his mid-30s.

How Glucagon Could Be the Next Frontier in Managing Type 1 Diabetes
-Sony Salzman For most people with diabetes, glucagon forms an important part of our emergency kits. As a medication, it treats critically low blood sugars.

Three New Apple Watch Features for People with Type 1 Diabetes
One Drop announced its latest Bluetooth blood glucose monitor will transmit readings directly to most Apple Watches, and two other features that may help the diabetes community.
Moving the Needle on Insulin Delivery
Imagine a wristwatch that pulses insulin through the skin without a needle pricking the skin. “No pain. No site changes. Less consumables,” says engineer Nitin Saluja, PhD, co-inventor of this proposed insulin delivery system. It would work like an electronic pancreas, communicating via Bluetooth to a continuous glucose monitor. A sensor, used separately, would track...

In the 90s, researchers had...
