Effect of the Insupatch on Automated Closed-Loop Glucose Control in Type 1 Diabetes

Conditions

Type 1 Diabetes

What is the purpose of this trial?

This research study designed to look at how well adolescents' and young adults' blood sugars can be controlled with a "closed loop artificial pancreas" using a continuous glucose sensor, an insulin pump, and a computer program that automatically determines how much insulin to give based on the glucose level. The investigators will also study the effect of wearing a small heating patch, the InsuPatch, at the site of insulin infusion, on the ability of the closed loop system to control the blood sugar levels and to reduce the rise in glucose levels after meals.
