How the management of Diabetes may change thanks to technology

The basic way of managing diabetes is largely dependent on whether it is type one or two.

For type one, it is necessary to artificially add insulin to the body usually by way of a self administered injection. For type two, it is about controlled lifestyle and weight. For both types the aim is to manage the blood sugar levels in the body and ensure sufficient levels of insulin are maintained as well.
