Prediabetes and artificial pancreas devices

The July/August issue of ACP Internist includes articles on prediabetes and next-generation insulin pumps.


The July/August issue of ACP Internist includes two articles related to diabetes. In a cover story on prediabetes, experts discuss the uncertainty about how to manage patients whose blood glucose levels are higher than normal but fall below the cutoff for diabetes. The other article describes how next-generation insulin pumps will offer continuous monitoring and feature sophisticated computer algorithms that automatically calculate and administer precise doses of insulin.
