7 diabetes treatment innovations to look out for on World Diabetes Day

World Diabetes Day — Nov. 14 — centers around raising awareness for those with diabetes.

This year, that aim remains the same, and medical technology companies continue to look for ways to continue improving the management of the metabolic disease.

Some of those treatments involve insulin, which was discovered as a treatment for diabetes in 1922 and remains a vital part of the standard of care. World Diabetes Day falls on Nov. 14 because it is the birthday of Frederick Banting, one of the scientists involved in discovering insulin as a treatment for diabetes.

However, while many medtech companies look for ways to make insulin accessible and efficient in treating diabetes, others are innovating treatment avenues outside of insulin.

MedTech 100 roundup: Industry climbs again

The medtech industry built off a strong performance two weeks ago with another uptick in the midst of an up-and-down year.

MassDevice‘s MedTech 100 Index — which includes stocks of the world’s largest medical device companies — finished the week (June 18) at 110.64 points, producing a 0.9% rise from the 109.63-point mark set one week prior (June 11). In all, the industry has risen 3.4% over the past two weeks.

The recent upswing provides a welcome sight after the industry’s progress came to a halt with a -1.4% dip earlier this month. The index looks poised to pick up again as it nears the high points registered when April brought the industry’s all-time best performance.

Even with some recent setbacks, medtech’s performance continues to reflect an overall rebound from the struggles brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, too. The industry has registered an 19.8% rise from the pre-pandemic high of 92.32 (set on Feb. 19, 2020), plus a 78.1% increase from the …
