A pain-free way to manage type 2 diabetes

A pain-free way to manage type 2 diabetes
For millions of people with type 2 diabetes, ongoing vigilance over the amount of sugar, or glucose, in their blood is the key to health. A finger prick before mealtimes and maybe an insulin injection is an uncomfortable but necessary routine. Researchers with NIH’s National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) have devised a biochemical formula of mineralised compounds that interacts in the bloodstream to regulate blood sugar for days at a time.
