Estimated Study Completion Date: November 2018
Estimated Primary Completion Date: November 2018 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: insulin and glucose infusion
trial of experimental technique in outpatient setting; the group under study will be comprised of type 1 and type 2 diabetic individuals ; they will have automated treatment using algorithm which regulates balancing infusions of glucose and/or insulin intravenously without manual intervention; blood glucose target of 80-180 mg/dl will be guide for the automated system
Device: glucose and insulin infusions
combined algorithm directed glucose and insulin infusion with 5 minute blood glucose measurements to direct glucose control; regular insulin and glucose are infused intravenously as adjusted by the algorithm without manual intervention in the group of diabetic individuals under study to adjust the glucose level to a target range of 80-180 mg/dl

Detailed Description:
The study is using an experimental design outpatient with individuals having treatment using an automated closed loop glucose control unit; glucoses are measured every 5 minutes using a intravenous glucose sensor and infusion of glucose and insulin are altered without manual intervention as directed by algorithm

Ages Eligible for Study:   21 Years to 85 Years   (Adult, Senior)

Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • type 1 or type 2 diabetic individuals on insulin ages 21-85 with A1c 7-9.9%
  • glucose at time of study > 150 mg/dl

Exclusion Criteria:
