The absence of insulin is a major problem especially in children with diabetes. The only treatment for diabetes patients to date was the injection of insulin, which was repeated 3-4 times a day. This was a problem both for pain and system discomfort and also for diabetic patients for social reasons.
Insulin is a hormone that breaks down with stomach acid when taken orally, so there was no insulin pills. Now they're done with a new technology, and they can pass through the stomach without being broken down and absorbed in the intestine without any change.
This is really great news for diabetics. Very soon we will be able to reach these tablets.
