It's not a cure but it sounds very exciting

    I've just heard of a research project, that sounds very exciting to me. Apparently there is a project under-way (in the US?) where they are encapsulating insulin in fat and when it's injected a rise in the blood glucose level dissolves the fat and releases the insulin.

    I'm sure this will have been mentioned somewhere on here but I can't find it, so if anyone has any further information please can they point me to it. Could it be the end of hypos?
