VIDEO: ‘Big year,’ breakthroughs seen in type 1 diabetes

CHICAGO — In this video exclusive, Dawn Belt Davis, MD, PhD, associate professor in the division of endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison recaps some of the exciting developments in type 1 diabetes presented at the Endocrine Society Annual Meeting.

Particularly interesting, Davis said, are discussions of the real-world use of an artificial pancreas system, for example, in athletes, in whom the algorithms may not work as well. Survival strategies for islet transplantation and improving outpatient hypoglycemia were also hot topics.
