• Researchers developing bionic pancreas for diabetics

    BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- A team of researchers in Boston is developing a bionic pancreas for diabetics.

    According to the Boston Globe, the wearable device monitors blood sugar and automatically gives insulin as needed.

    Unlike other artificial devices, this one corrects high blood sugar and bumps up sugar levels when they are too low. It was created by scientists at Massachusetts General Hospital and Boston University.

    Patients will still have to prick their fingers twice a day to make sure the monitor is accurate, but won't have to administer insulin on their own.
