New insulin molecule can self-adjust according to a patient’s glucose level

Researchers from biotech firm Gubra and the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, created a  glucose-responsive insulin molecule that adapts to glucose levels of rats. When blood sugar goes up, the molecule becomes more active and releases more insulin. As blood sugar drops, less is released. The molecule was tested in rats and turned out to be effective. This is one more step forward to make the treatment of people with type 1 diabetes easier and safer. In the future, it will be possible for a person with diabetes to inject insulin less often, and thus, the life easier. While we are waiting for this life-changing breakthrough, don’t forget to check your blood sugar and protect your sensor with an adhesive patch!
