The Mimined 530G with Enlite is the first insulin pump system in the US that offers superior glucose control by integrating a continuous glucose monitor that it is designed to stop delivering insulin when the sensor glucose drops to a preset low threshold. We speak with John Mastrototaro Vice President of Research and Development at Medtronic Diabetes, to learn more about this first generation artificial pancreas system with Threshold Suspend.
The challenges of diabetes make it nearly impossible to perfectly balance glucose and insulin. The Arterial Pancreas Project is the medical marvel that can help improve blood glucose for a well-balanced life with diabetes. We speak with Dr. Aaron Kowalski, a lead researcher in the Artificial Pancreas Project. He tells us how and why the artificial pancreas will change lives of people living with diabetes.
A study has shown that men at high risk for developing Type 2 diabetes were nearly 40% less likely to develop the disease when they participated in a program that delivered text messages to help them implement lifestyle changes. We speak with Dr. Ramachandran, Chairman of Dr. A. Ramachandran’s Diabetes Hospitals and President of India Diabetes Research Foundation, about how this innovative program changed lives.
The Human Trial follows three research teams in a race to cure T1D diabetes, the autoimmune form of diabetes This documentary gives you a front-row seat to a potential history-making clinical trial. If the cure works, the results are immediate. Within 48 hours patients could be off insulin, some for the first time in their lives. Lisa Hepner, Partner at Vox Pop Films and Documentary Producer, tells us about The Human Trial, what it means to her, and what it could mean for millions of people with T1D.

The study to Identify Risk Factors While Driving with T1Dis imperative to driving safely with diabetes. Low blood glucose affects cognition, reaction time, vision, and judgment. Dr. Daniel Cox is a professor of psychiatry at the University of Virginia Health System and is conducting research on people with T1D driving. He discusses the objective of his study, what we know about hypoglycemia while driving, and how this research is helping to reduce the risk of hypoglycemia accidents when driving.
A study shows that executive cognitive function is impaired during low blood glucose. All people, with diabetes and without, suffer from executive cognitive function impairment during hypoglycemia. Dr. Alex Graveling, Specialty Registrar, Diabetes & Endocrinology at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, speaks about the insightful findings of this study.
Researchers have been trying to identify causes of T1D for decades but their research has been unsuccessful. By identifying the genes that predispose a person to T1D, and studying what environmental triggers switch these genes on, the TEDDY Study was born. We speak with Dr. Kendra Vehik about the revealing work being done in the TEDDY Study.
