to countless parents all over the world, whose children have diabetes,
sleeping at night is the least thing they have in mind.
Some young people with diabetes can not rest through the night without
fear of having their blood sugar levels fall so low as to place their
lives in danger.
Dutiful parents may have no option but to continue to keep constant
vigil turn by turn through the night, to make sure that the baby wakes
up alright within the morning. But there is new hope.
A new medical device that can measure a child's blood glucose levels
during the night and at the same time administer the correct amount of
insulin if needed through an attached insulin administration pump. The
Lancet, the British medical specialty journal, confirmed this medical
report, and furthers that manufacturers of this medical device will
soon begin distribution in the market.
Prior to this advancement, children with juvenile diabetes (or Type I
diabetes), had a blood glucose level monitor that did a continuous
monitoring job all night, and a second unit, an automatic insulin
administration pump that worked independently from the first machine.
Juvenile diabetes is a condition that begins in childhood. Having a
child with diabetes can drastically changed the lives of a family in
many ways as diabetes management is critical and life long.
Children with diabetes need to have intricate medical device setup due
to sudden decrease in blood sugar levels, or hypoglycemia, can drive a
child into tremors, seizures, and possibly even a coma, or death. Also,
children with this medical condition have blood sugar levels that
fluctuate anytime, and a simple automated pump which administers
insulin at timed intervals is not much effective.
In a study conducted among a group of young people in which a group was
placed on the new device, and the other group was placed on the usual
method. The typical method sounded the alarm for seriously reduced
blood sugar levels for some children, but the system was incapable to
reach in time.
In America, there are almost 500,000 persons with Type 1 diabetes and
are using this sort of typical insulin administration method. A
conventional way to obtain sample for blood sugar detection was to
prick the skin on the fingertip, for several times a day. But there are
new tools that can measure blood sugar amounts with sensors attached to
But, cautionary measures should be taken when using this sensor along
with an automatic insulin administration pump. An instance would be if
sudden reduced of blood sugar amounts are detected the device sounds
the alarm; however, if the person fails to hear this, the pump will
keep on transmitting insulin into the blood to metabolize the absent
glucose. This could develop into an extremely unsafe condition.
With the new medical device, both functions of devices are already
integrated in one package, and are working together to measure blood
glucose levels accurately while administering proper amounts of insulin
with out further assistance. Johnson & Johnson and Artificial
Pancreas Project are working closely to deliver this medical device in
a more handy and transportable size.
It might seem somewhat mysterious why this hasn't been possible before;
but monitoring blood glucose ranges reliably, and preparing insulin
administration in real time, is no small matter. Chip technology and
computer programming technology needed to advance sufficiently so this
