  • FDA Approves iLet Bionic Pancreas

    May 22, 2023
    The FDA has cleared the iLet Bionic Pancreas system for patients aged 6 and older with type 1 diabetes. The pocket-sized system includes the Beta Bionics iLet ACE pump and the iLet Dosing Decision Software, along with an integrated continuous glucose monitor (CGM). The FDA's decision was based on the system's Breakthrough Device Designation and aims to provide the type 1 diabetes community with more options for diabetes management. The system is easy to initiate, as it only requires the patient's body weight for insulin dosing and does not need manual adjustments. It features a meal announcement feature that estimates carb consumption, removing the need for traditional carb counting. The system demonstrated its efficacy in a pivotal trial, showing improved HbA1c levels and increased time spent in the target glucose range.
