The FDA has expanded its indication for Medtronic’s Guardian Sensor 3, allowing patients to wear the sensor on their upper arm. The sensor is part of Medtronic’s MiniMed 670G system, and is currently the only continuous glucose monitor approved by the FDA to control automated insulin delivery via a hybrid closed loop system. Along with the added convenience of the new sensor site, the company...

Touchscreen insulin pump maker Tandem Diabetes announced a new clinical trial for an insulin pump with a predictive low glucose suspend (PLGS) algorithm. Another step on the road to an artificial pancreas, PLGS allows Tandem to automatically suspend insulin delivery when it predicts low glucose and resume it when glucose starts to rise again. “The start of this pivotal trial is another important...

A new partnership in the diabetes space could bring the promise of an artificial pancreas closer to reality. Senseonics, a Germantown, Maryland company working on a pill-sized, implantable continuous glucose monitor that can last 90 days without needing replacement, will work with digital, personalized medicine company TypeZero Technologies on a project to integrate readings from Senseonics...

As exciting as the near future of diabetes management is, with numerous efforts underway to perfect closed-loop CGM and pump systems for automated insulin delivery, the systems of the future could be even easier. A paper out yesterday in Science Advances details the prototype for a 4 millimeter wearable patch that could not only noninvasively detect glucose levels from sweat, but also deliver the...
