  • Study HIC#:2000022726
  • Last Updated:11/16/2021

Rapid Action Insulin (RAI) absorption and action measured by time to reach maximum insulin concentration and glucose infusion rate.

  • Age18 years - 30 years
  • GenderBoth
  • Start Date01/20/2021
  • End Date01/01/2022

Trial Purpose and Description

The investigators hypothesize that RAI absorption and action measured by time to reach maximum insulin concentration and glucose infusion rate during the clamp study will be significantly faster when insulin bolus is delivered using the "Quick Bolus" feature as compared to the "Standard Bolus".

Eligibility Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  6. Ability to comprehend written and spoken English
  7. Total daily requirement of insulin between 0.6 and1.2 U/kg/day
  8. Not have any other medical condition or disease known to affect insulin action and glucose control aside from T1D or treated hypothyroidism

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Medication besides insulin known to alter blood glucose or insulin action
  2. Female subjects of reproductive potential that are pregnant or breast feeding, or not consistently using a barrier method or abstinence as contraception.
  3. Inability to comprehend written and spoken English
