Abstract: This article briefly summarizes some new medications, new ways to deliver insulin, and new ways to monitor blood glucose levels for people with diabetes. The author discusses inhaled insulin, Exubera; two new injectable medications: Byetta and Symlin, which have effects in addition to lowering blood glucose levels, notably in reducing hunger and helping patients to lose weight; a new class of oral medications, the DPP–4 inhibitors: Januvia and Galvus, which lower blood glucose levels but also help control blood glucose levels after meals when they tend to be highest; the use of the oral medication Avandia to prevent or delay type 2 diabetes; the use of continuous blood glucose monitoring; and work on islet transplants. 1 figure.
