With the aging population and the prevalence of overweight and obesity in western countries, it’s no surprise that type 2 diabetes is on the rise and affecting a growing number of people. 

Fortunately, new technologies hold unprecedented promise for new treatments and monitoring options. While blood glucose–lowering medication and traditional insulins remain central to diabetes treatment, new molecules and insulins are emerging to help the body manage glucose in new ways and facilitate proper blood glucose control, often with a lower risk of hypoglycemia. Mobile and wireless technologies are helping power tools that were still science fiction just yesterday, including continuous glucose monitoring and data transfer to smartphones, automated insulin administration based on blood glucose levels and the food you eat, and apps that store blood glucose and diet data and can instantly share it with healthcare professionals. In short, developers’ and inventors’ imaginations know no limits! We are on the cusp of a new, exciting era that holds out new hope for diabetics in the fight against diabetes.
