Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to study the use of a counterbalancing system of glucose and insulin infusion with frequent blood glucose monitoring and combined adaptive algorithm can produce tight glycemic control without hypoglycemia; study to develop a closed loop for use in intensive care units and surgery

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Hyperglycemia Diabetes Device: glucose and insulin infusions Phase 1 Phase 2

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

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 40 participants
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Insulin Balanced Infusion System Control of Glucose
Study Start Date : November 2008
Estimated Primary Completion Date : November 2018
Estimated Study Completion Date : November 2018

Arm Intervention/treatment
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

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. glucose control in target range [ Time Frame: data will be evaluated within 6 months after completion of all 40 studies ]
    blood glucose measurements in target range (80-125 mg/dl)

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. hypoglycemia [ Time Frame: data will be evaluated within 6 months after all 40 studies are completed ]
    blood glucose <70 mg/dl
