New device to help manage diabetes
A new device may help some people with managing diabetes.
Scientists have made big progress on a "bionic pancreas."
Doctors say the wearable, experimental device monitors blood sugar and automatically gives insulin or a sugar-boosting drug as needed.
Doctors tested it for five days in adults and teens with type 1 diabetes.
It improved blood-sugar control more than standard monitors and insulin pumps did.
The device was developed at Massachusetts General Hospital and Boston University.
