    [Insulin, Sugar] Smart Insulin Automatically Modifies Blood Sugar Levels
    An article published by FoxNews.com says that researchers have developed a modified insulin that independently adjusts blood-sugar levels that creep too high for people—well, mice—with diabetes. The experimental study from the University of Utah Health Sciences injected mice with the “smart” insulin, formally named Ins-PBA-F. The modified insulin will only activate when an excessive amount of glucose is detected. Quick Hits.

    [Insulin, Sugar] Can I Inject Insulin into Muscle?
    Q: Is there any reason not to inject insulin directly into muscle? They hurt more than subcutaneous injections and people need to use sterile syringes to prevent infection, but otherwise this type of injection can speed up insulin action considerably. This can be a useful tool for bringing high blood glucose levels down quickly or for avoiding blood sugar spikes when consuming high glycemic meals without a pre-bolus.

This change triggers insulin release and the control of blood sugar levels.

    New research suggests that the development of diabetes Type 2 requires a failure of both the islet-cell system in the pancreas and a brain-centered system for regulating blood sugar levels.
