A device known as the “bionic pancreas” has recently been approved by the FDA for use by diabetics. This revolutionary technology allows users to simply input the size of their next meal and an AI algorithm calculates and administers the right amount of insulin to keep blood sugar levels stable. One San Antonio teen, Mia Campos, has found this device to be life-changing after being diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 10.

Mia, now 15, struggled with managing her blood sugar levels using a traditional insulin pump, which required constant programming and often had glitches. However, her pediatric endocrinologist recommended the “bionic pancreas” as a solution and Mia has since found it to be a game-changer in her life.

The “bionic pancreas” is a small device that clips to Mia’s jeans and uses AI software to tailor insulin delivery to her glucose levels. Approved for use in individuals six years and older, the device only requires one entry about the size of the next meal. This technology has allowed Mia to focus on her studies and gymnastics training without constantly worrying about carbohydrates and insulin levels.

Dr. Jane Lynch, Mia’s endocrinologist, emphasizes the importance of diet and exercise in maintaining stable blood sugar levels in addition to the benefits of the “bionic pancreas.” Mia herself is thrilled with the device and believes it will help many people, especially those with busy lifestyles who struggle to manually manage their insulin levels.

Overall, this new technology has provided hope and relief to diabetics like Mia, allowing them to live more confidently and comfortably with their condition.
