Hope for Diabetics: Artificial Pancreas

This is a ray of hope for Type one diabetics dependent on insulin, continuous blood glucose monitors have been around for a while and insulin pumps now they have put the two together. It's currently in the early stages and being tested on 75 folks in the US but so far the results are good, allowing them to lead a more normal life and eat what they want (of course healthy choices are a plus!) the device checks the glucose then injects the correct amount of insulin. I have been a dietitian 9 years and the advances in diabetes care over this time are mind blowing. 
Praise God for smart scientists...
