Blood Sugar Rising

Ed - Boston, MA

Ed’s son David was less than a year old when he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. An infant can’t manage his own blood sugar levels, so Ed and his wife had to keep track of David's blood sugar levels night and day. Eventually this would lead Ed to his life’s work, developing an artificial pancreas to take over diabetes care.
