I’m a grad student at Georgia Tech and am working on a research assignment to improve the technology surrounding insulin delivery systems. Right now we are working on a more affective user friendly insulin pump. However, I wanted to explore a different idea. Just like you can hit a nerve in the knee that triggers the leg to pop up, is there a way to trigger the body to make the insulin itself? I realize there are many people working on this.
My question is; What are the names of the hormones and/or enzymes the body has to produce to trigger what part of the body to do what to balance insulin levels in the body? Even though researchers haven’t come up with the perfect chemical combination to do this, my project is coming up with the delivery device and not what needs to be delivered.
Any information anyone out there can share would be very appreciated. Especially, if you’ve read promising research papers on this subject, please send me the name of the paper and the names of the authors so that I can find it. Or if you have a paper you thing might help, could you e-mail me.
Thanks so much to anyone who can help.
