    Fascinating idea. I hope it becomes reality. We need all the help we can get! Thanks for the info.

    This is a great idea. Not only is our pancreas messed up, so is the relationship between it and the liver. Having too much insulin on-board for us blocks the liver from releasing glucose. I’m really surprised, though, that no one else has thought of this approach.

    I would imagine that if this comes to market, a diabetic would use LESS insulin because it would make our insulin more effective.

    Love this fresh approach. This type of out of the box thinking is exactly what we need to better manage diabetes but also someday understand it and cure it.

    I am confused becuase the article says that their HDV tech still isn’t even at prototype stage yet, so then how has it been green-lighted for Phase 3 clinical trials?

    With this concept, would carbs still need counted and dosing still need estimated, just with less precision?

    PWDs and Lilly/Sanofi/Novo take note: This may truly REVOLUTIONIZE diabetes care for insulin users. Finally diabetics will have something that makes insulin work the way it should have (but currently doesn’t), lowering post-meal BGs effectively. The studies look promising. Thank you, Bob and W. Blair Geho. We’ve needed this!!!!

    I love seeing new developments like this, I think diabetes is one of the many areas where technology can be greatly improved to enhance the lives of diabetics. Insulin pumps are a step in the right direction but they should be completely closed loop by now… Just my two cents.

    good luck with big pharma,a dollar for every stick,pretty hard to ignore and possibly incentive to create more diabetics by what ever means
