The "iTunes of diabetes care"

Cellnovo is developing what is being called the "iTunes of diabetes care." If you're not familiar with iTunes, then you may not understand this comparison. Cellnovo said they would commercialize and expand markets for its diabetes management system, which includes an insulin pump, a mobile handset, and an online management system for patients wtih diabetes. Combined, this system resembles an iPhone and the iTunes interface.

If you have a passion for technology and gadgets, then it may be time for you to pursue endocrinology so that you can play with all these insulin pumps, glucose meters, and continuous monitoring systems. Eventually, scientists will find a way to create an implantable artificial pancreas. Until that happens, we'll be relying on gadgets and computers to improve glucose control.
