Insuline oltre l’insulina

Insulins beyond insulin

Insulin pumps, or systems for Continuous Subcutaneous Insulin In-fusion (CSII), have changed from rudimentary devices with limited dosing flexibility to “smart” systems able to modulate insulin administration with greater flexibility and accuracy. The combination of insulin pump, continuous glucose monitoring and control algorithm now allows the automatic administration of insulin with an efficacy in glucose control never achieved previously. We review here the evolution in technology that has made possible this big advance in the care of diabetes.
