“If you have diabetes, your pancreas either produces too little insulin or none at all. The insulin can’t be used effectively. Blood glucose levels can rise while the rest of your cells are deprived of much-needed energy. This can lead to a wide variety of serious problems affecting nearly every major body system.”

Type 1 Diabetes: There is a need for continuous insulin supply and also an immediate response dose to suit the requirements of the diabetic as blood glucose levels change throughout the day due to activities, diet and lifestyle.
