Commercial Agreement Makes d-Nav Insulin Guidance Service Available to Selected Type 2 Diabetes Population in Michigan

d-Nav diabetes insulin guidance system trialled in Northern Ireland

New technology designed to enable the automatic adjustment of insulin dosages for diabetes patients has been put to the test in Northern Ireland.

Over the past 18 months staff at Ulster Hospital in Dundonald has been trialling the d-Nav Diabetes Insulin Guidance System (DIGS), which allows diabetic users to easily regulate their own insulin.

The pilot study, lead by Dr Roy Harper, involved more than 150 insulin-dependent diabetes patients with poor blood glucose control, and the results have been largely encouraging.
