I just read an article (http://www.diabeticconnect.com/diabetes-news/...) about a study done at North Carolina State University in which 'smart' nanoparticles were tested on mice to control blood sugar. The nanoparticles work as a network to monitor, manage, and control blood sugar. It sounds like science-fiction but it's been working on the mice to control their blood sugar for up to ten days! What do you think about this news? Would it be something you would be willing to try? Do you think there would be any downsides? I'd love to hear what you think!

Downsides ahhhhh yeah. What happens when it screws up and keeps wrongly thinking we need to go lower when we are actually perfect. Will it force us hypo ? Keep us there because it misreads something critical?

No not ready for nano yet but like the theory real time correction with some constraints
