In this article we will discuss the innovative ways of treating Diabetes.
According to Everyday Health there are 9 Advancements That Have Changed Type 2 Diabetes Treatment and Management.
- “Insulin pumps The first insulin pump came on the market in 1974, according to an article published in June 2020 in the journal Diabetes Therapy.
- Continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) These devices have a tiny sensor that is placed below the surface of the skin to measure the amount of glucose in the fluid between cells every few minutes and transmit the data wirelessly to a device or your smartphone.
- Connected CGM-insulin pumps Another option available is a combination CGM-insulin pump, which enables the pump to use the data from the CGM to suggest changes in medication dosing or make necessary adjustments on its own.
- Diabetes medications Although insulin has been used in the United States since the 1920s, according to the ADA, today’s medications can be far more targeted for specific diabetes issues.
- Insulin innovations Insulin has come a long way since it was first discovered.
- Easier-to-use glucagon Glucagon is used in emergencies to treat very low blood sugar, or hypoglycemia, a dangerous condition that can lead to confusion, loss of consciousness, seizures, and even death, according to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases.
- Better support for people with diabetes In the past, many people with type 2 diabetes were treated by their primary care physician — rather than an endocrinologist, who is trained to treat diabetes — who may not have had any special training in the complexities of type 2 diabetes management.
- Diabetes smartphone apps Yes, there’s an app for that — many of them, in fact.
- Meal delivery services While they weren’t developed specifically for diabetes, meal delivery companies that offer healthy foods and recipes have become very popular over the past several years.”
