A bionic pancreas is a device that monitors blood sugar by automatically giving insulin or sugar inducing drug as needed. It was proven in recent studies to monitor blood sugar more efficiently than blood glucose meters. This device has been built at Boston University and tests will continue this summer and their studies plan to be released in the Fall. If this device were to be perfected, it would be able to act in place of a patient's pancreas, which is the cause of diabetes and loss of control of blood sugar levels.
