Technological advances in the management of diabetes have been described as a stepping stone in the journey towards a cure. These include continuous glucose monitoring, insulin pumps, computerised mathematical algorithms, and closed-loop artificial pancreas systems. The approaches offer the tantalising promise of near-normal glucose control to people with diabetes. However, as is often the case with human/technological interactions, we have the technology but we do not have all the answers.
