Taking Diabetes Tech from Theory to Practice

By Jason Middleton

About 10 percent of America’s population either has or is leaning toward diabetes, either type 1 or type 2.

That said, physical devices that monitor and share data with doctors as well as patients are seeing huge advancements — so why aren’t they being prescribed more.

This week we host Dr Saleh Adi. Dr Adi is a pediatric endocrinologist specializing in managing type 1 diabetes in children. He is founder of the Madison Clinic at the University of California, San Francisco, a state of the art center for pediatric diabetes.

Medical technology is historically innovative, and the leaps forward thanks to smarter technology, smaller form factors and better sharing capabilities, patients stand to benefit in ways not seen before.

The goal is to get more diabetes devices into a patient’s care.
