From the United Kingdom:

I have heard that in the US there are patches available (like nicotine patches) which diabetic patients can use as substitute for injections. Is this true? Can you send information / url / web site address for more information?


Sorry, they're still one of many ideas that have been discussed, but not yet proven practical. See Research: What's Coming? for some information.
