A Useful Step towards making it Easier to Take Insulin in Time for Diabetes Management

Insulin scores over oral medication for diabetes because it does not have many of the side-effects of the pills we are prescribed for this disease. However, forgetting to take a dose of insulin, or taking too much, has serious consequences. Doctors always worry that patients may suffer the serious consequences of extreme blood glucose level variations due to lapses in insulin medication.

Digital recording of insulin doses and timings go a long way in improving the safety of this hormone administration. A simple but very useful innovation is to allow such automatic recording on an insulin device. Such a product is now available by prescription in the United States, and should soon become standard features on all insulin pens and syringes everywhere in the world.
