The National Health Service (NHS) in the UK is preparing to offer an "artificial pancreas" to thousands of adults and children, diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. This decision comes after the successful trial of the Hybrid Closed Loop System, also known as the artificial pancreas. The device, designed to continuously monitor blood glucose levels and adjust insulin dosage, is expected to significantly improve management of the disease.
