Technologies used to manage diabetes are constantly changing. For the most part, that’s a good thing — it means that new and often improved options are continually available, which can offer increased convenience, greater precision, or a proven ability to better manage your blood glucose levels.
But the downside of this dynamic is that it can be hard to keep track of what options are available from which manufacturers, and what developments loom on the horizon. So for this article, we’ve compiled a list of the most promising currently available and soon-to-be released technologies in the areas of insulin pumps, continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) systems, and apps for diabetes data management.
Each of the featured technologies has either received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) already or is expected to do so within the next year. We didn’t include technologies that are still in earlier development stages. They’ll be technologies to watch in a future year!
Here are 10 technology offerings to watch — and possibly consider using — in 2019.
