Some companies are developing new medicines. It takes a long time to get new medicines because they are tested a long time.One thing is a pancreas transplant. This is for people with type 1 diabetes. They get a new pancreas and they don't have to use insulin. The bad thing is you have to take other medicines to keep the pancreas and those medicines cause problems. Another thing is an insulin pump. It automatically checks blood sugar and puts in insulin when the body needs it. It hangs on your side.
