Type I Diabetes: Research Efforts For Faster Acting Treatments

 

Insulin is necessary for the body to be able to use sugar. A diagnosis of type 1 diabetes means that your body is no longer producing insulin. Current treatments require patients to inject insulin at least 30 minutes prior to eating, which means that they must follow a strict and regimented dietary schedule. While we have come a long way in the management of Type 1 diabetes, scientists are working hard to develop even better treatments.

 

One such potential advancement is faster-acting insulin treatments. Faster-acting, or “meal-time”, insulin treatments would mimic normal pancreatic function, giving patients more flexibility in when they administer insulin and, therefore, when they can eat. Additionally, faster-acting insulin could help reduce hypoglycemic episodes, which can lead to severe complications. Lastly, advances in faster-acting insulin treatments could help accelerate the development of an artificial pancreas, a solution, which could eventually cure diabetes.

 

Here at Medical Research Group of Central Florida, we are participating in these efforts to develop new, faster-acting insulin treatments, and are looking for research volunteers with Type 1 diabetes. Research volunteers will be compensated for their time and travel. Most importantly, research volunteers will help the advancement of type I diabetes treatment.  

 

Please contact us if you or your loved one has Type 1 diabetes and might be interested.
